Software defined networking (SDN) refers to a network architecture solution that ensures workflow automation through software-based applications. It is customized to improve the agility and efficiency of networks and enables users to effectively control the network traffic and large volume of data. SDN architecture has numerous elements, including a controller for centralizing virtual and physical environments, a northbound Application Program Interface (API) for transmitting the data between the controller and the application, and a southbound API for transferring information between the individual switches and controller. It is more cost-effective, secure, and flexible as compared to the traditionally used networking systems. Consequently, SDN finds widespread application across various sectors, such as enterprises, telecommunication service providers, cloud service providers, etc.

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis takes over the world, we are continuously tracking the changes in the markets, as well as the industry behaviours of the consumers globally and our estimates about the latest market trends and forecasts are being done after considering the impact of this pandemic.

Software Defined Networking Market trends:
