A community show where we get Brent Salisbury and Ivan Pepelnjak to talk about the events of the last few weeks. In the end, the only thing we seemed to cover was OpenDaylight, ONS and various SDN topics.
- Open Networking Summit – Brent reports in.
- Talking SDN and OpenDaylight
- Ivan asks “will you install open source software as the controller in your SDN network”
- Juniper is Father (IP), Son (BGP) and Holy Ghost(MPLS)
Cisco’s Padmasree Warrior tells us that networking is all about the hardware – Three Truths about Networking – the Next Chapter
To summarize, of the $3.7B SDN market opportunity represented, 58% of the market or roughly $2.1 Billion is network infrastructure. Neither routers nor switches will become irrelevant in the world of SDN. Only 8.7% or roughly $330 Million represents the market opportunity for the control-plane enabling SDN technology – whether that’s a software controller or some form of virtual overlay technology. The truth is, Cisco will see a $670 Million market for next generation applications and network services that will get created on top of the hardware and software infrastructure. By the way, this market is an incremental opportunity to the business Cisco operates in today. Not to mention a high margin incremental business in the roughly $570 Million market for services that tie the new applications to the systems infrastructure.
