The Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) has advanced to the growth stage from an early growth phase of the product lifecycle.In 2018 survey, we found that enterprises were aware of the benefits of SD-WAN and prepared for its deployment.

Since then, enterprise decision-makers have focused on upgrading network capabilities with SD-WAN solutions, increasing their efforts as the COVID-19 pandemic-induced disruptions drive the shift to remote work as the new normal. The 2021 SD-WAN survey validates the SD-WAN adoption trend across industries and how IT decision-makers emphasize security functionalities and network virtualization.

This report provides a detailed analysis of the 2021 SD-WAN survey results, evaluating the benefits enterprises achieve from SD-WAN deployment, the trends on replacing existing network equipment, enterprises’ preferred VNFs, and the criteria IT decision-makers use in selecting a SD-WAN solution.
