DALLAS, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Software Defined Networks (SDN): Challenges, Opportunities, and Outlook for Carrier Networks is a 150 pages market research report published in July 2014. This research evaluates SDN technology, companies, solutions, and market outlook and is available with at .

This SDN market research report for carrier networks says software-defined networking (SDN) is an approach to computer networking that allows network administrators to manage network services through abstraction of lower level functionality.  However, it is much more to telecom as SDN has the potential to transform the carriers by improving the ability of network operators to provide applications, services, feature/functionality and bandwidth in an on-demand basis. Furthermore, SDN it can help virtualize carrier networks and connect the subscriber base with functions, mobility, content, analytics, security, flow-control, optimization, etc.

Software Defined Networks (SDN): Challenges, Opportunities, and Outlook for Carrier Networks research evaluates SDN technology, companies, solutions, and market outlook. It also provides insights into SDN in carrier networks and the prospects and advantages of deployment models uniquely suited to their needs and anticipated business models.

The NFV, SDN & Wireless Network Infrastructure Market: 2014 - 2020 research report estimates that NFV and SDN investments on the RAN segment alone will account for over $5 Billion by 2020. These investments will primarily focus on  cloud RAN (C-RAN) deployments, based around the idea of replacing traditional base station nodes with a centralized baseband processing pool serving a number of distributed radio access nodes. This report package provides an in-depth assessment of NFV, SDN, network virtualization, 2G, 3G and 4G wireless network infrastructure, HetNet and mobile backhaul. Besides analyzing the key market drivers, challenges, commercial commitments and vendor strategies, the report package also presents forecasts for NFV, SDN, wireless network infrastructure, small cell, WiFi offload, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), C-RAN the mobile backhaul markets from 2014 to 2020 at a regional as well as a global scale. Historical figures and vendor shares are also provided for 2010 till 2013.

The report package ( ) comes with an associated Excel datasheet suite covering quantitative data from all numeric forecasts presented in the three reports.
