    The results suggest network teams are investigating and adopting emerging technologies like SDN and 40 gigabit (Gb) ethernet networks on a limited basis, while technologies such as unified communications (UC) and bring your own device (BYOD) are approaching the threshold of mainstream adoption, tipping in at more than 50 percent implementation by year's end.

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."
