Study highlights

  • SDN is emerging in the enterprise: One in five of the organizations surveyed plan to have deployed SDN by the end of 2014.
  • Network experts are having trouble defining SDN: Nearly 40 percent of respondents consider SDN to be undefinable.
  • Network bandwidth continues to surge: By 2015, 25 percent of organizations expect their bandwidth demand to grow 51 to 100 percent, while 12 percent predict growth of more than 100 percent.
  • Growing 40 Gb adoption: By 2015, 25 percent will have implemented 40 Gb data rates in their enterprise networks.

Network Instruments, a business unit of JDSU, recently released the results of its Seventh Annual State of the Network Global Study. Highlighted in the survey taken by 241 network professionals is continuing uncertainty surrounding the emerging software-defined networks (SDN), which many network administrators view as a "road trip without a map." While 12 percent of network managers and engineers regard SDN as critical, the rest seem divided as to whether it is important at all, with more than 80 percent of respondents viewing SDN as "unimportant" or just wanting to "ride out the hype."
