Region :Global | Report ID: FBI100862 | Status : Ongoing



Software-defined networking (SDN) is a networking architecture designed to separate network management from the core network infrastructure. SDN helps administrators to update the flow of network traffic to meet technological changes. The software-defined network helps to decrease the complexity of statically defined networks and increase the speed of installation of applications and services. It also helps to simplify the setting and up-gradation of network resources. SDN architecture is highly deployed in 5G infrastructure to boost its networking capabilities.

The increasing investments by key telecom service providers in 5G infrastructure would help to improve the connectivity and increase the deployment of SDN solutions. Also, the evolution of 5G infrastructure network would help to drive the growth of the SDN market. For instance, China’s telecom service providers, including China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom, are planning to invest around US$ 180 Bn by 2023. This investment was initiated for the development of the 5G infrastructure, which is expected to enhance SDN market growth.
