State of the Network global survey finds two thirds of enterprises have deployed SDN

Fifty-four percent of respondents expect bandwidth requirements to grow by half in 2016, and 48 per cent expect them to double by the end of 2017. Enterprises are significantly increasing deployment of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE), public and private cloud, and software defined networking (SDN). The study is now available for download.

‘Data networks of all types, around the globe, are being strained by an explosion of traffic, from bandwidth-hungry video today to the Internet of Things tomorrow,’ said Oleg Khaykin, president and chief executive officer, Viavi Solutions. ‘As our State of the Network study shows, IT teams are responding by moving faster to implement emerging technologies, giving them the cost effective scalability and flexibility they need. Of course there will be ensuing challenges, from the unique installation and maintenance requirements of 100GbE, to the loss of performance monitoring capabilities for networks spread across physical, virtual and cloud segments.’
