One in five global companies has implemented an initial software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) project, while many more are at the proof of concept stage.

This is according to survey results from Teneo, an ‘as a service’ technology provider. The study, conducted alongside Sapio Research and which polled 200 senior IT and networking managers in the US and UK, found that increasing pressure on company resources and budgets is making companies examine the potential of SD-WAN, with increasing network complexity also cited.

More than a third of organisations’ IT budget is spent with upkeep tasks, according to the report, with another third adding they were using ‘as a service’ models to keep on top of maintenance. What’s more, companies are ‘shrewdly blending connectivity options’ to help beef up their network performance, with 38% of respondents wanting more MPLS, 22% wanting more Internet connectivity, and 20% wanting Internet and MPLS combined.

SD-WAN is being seen as a viable option therefore. 39% of companies polled said they were looking at global networking vendors for their implementations, while 24% are looking at telecoms providers and management consultancies respectively. Only 8% of those polled said they were looking for a specialist SD-WAN vendor.
