As organizations plan for the future of their enterprise network in a post-COVID-19 world, they increasingly realize the importance of connectivity, especially the Wide Area Network. IDC believes that SD-WAN will be a key technology for enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation journeys in 2021 and beyond.
For Digital Service Providers (DSPs), Managed SD-WAN Services provide attractive opportunities to tap into the growing SD-WAN market and create new revenue streams. As per MarketsandMarkets research, the global SD-WAN market size is expected to grow from USD 1.9 billion in 2020 to USD 8.4 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 34.5% during the forecast period. Increasing bandwidth demand, moving more applications to the cloud, increasing workforce mobility, and ensuring robust IT agility are few key drivers that further increase SD-WAN adoption.
To seize this opportunity, DSPs must move more aggressively and fast-track SD-WAN service rollouts for their enterprise customers. However, high network complexities and other operational challenges in the order-to-provisioning process significantly delays the SD-WAN rollout. This results in delayed revenue realization for DSPs and impacts the customer experience.
Key factors that delay SD-WAN service delivery for DSPs
According to a recent Heavy Reading’s survey, the top challenge in SD-WAN rollout is the complexity in managing a highly distributed service across multiple platforms, networks and cloud domains and integrating it into existing O/BSS Stack.
These challenges increase the cost and time-to-market of SD-WAN service, which ultimately impacts revenue realization. DSPs must embrace the right strategic levers to overcome these challenges and to accelerate the SD-WAN service delivery process.
