Growing adoption of cloud-based applications and demand for effective network management by enterprises are key growth drivers for the market
Increasing migration of the Latin American enterprises from traditional WAN infrastructure to cloud-based applications, is resulting in increasing demand for SD-WAN solutions. Due to high maintenance cost and complex architecture of convectional network, enterprises are in need for secure, affordable, and ease of WAN management. In Latin America, organizations are continuously expanding for greater customer reach, which has increased the demand for effective network management.
Management and maintenance of WAN are costly, and manual configurations are complex and time-consuming. Therefore, there is a need for more flexible and agile WAN solutions in the Latin American SD-WAN market. Moreover, with migration to mobile and cloud, the complexity and cost of traditional WAN models are becoming unsustainable. To overcome these challenges, organizations are adopting SD-WAN solutions to centrally manage and automate configurations of WAN edge routers and reduce the overall operational cost.
Growing demand for intelligent pathway control is offering lucrative opportunities for the market players
With growing network complexity and data congestion on network ends, intelligent pathway control mechanism offered by SD-WAN enables policy-based routing, where network path is assigned based on source, destination, and specific application. Therefore, the demand for intelligent pathway control offers immense opportunities for the Latin American SD-WAN market players, owing to its dynamic path selection capabilities, which allow IT administrators to set up performance threshold for various types of traffic such as latency sensitive traffic, interactive traffic, and others. This ensures that critical data and applications use the best path, based on latency, jitter, and loss over the available virtual private network (VPN) tunnel in the network.
SD-WAN market competitiveness
Mergers and acquisitions were the key activities observed in the Latin American SD-WAN market. For instance, Cisco Systems Inc. broadened its segment portfolio through the acquisition of Viptela Inc., a SD-WAN technology provider, in August 2017, which is expected to consolidate its market position in the region.
Some of the key players operating in the Latin American SD-WAN market are Cisco Systems Inc., Citrix Systems Inc., Silver Peak Systems Inc., CloudGenix Inc., Ecessa Corporation, Riverbed Technology Inc., Mushroom Networks Incorporated, VMware Inc., Gluware Inc., Elfiq Networks, and Aryaka Networks Inc.
