Canadian Communications Service Provider SD-WAN Services Forecast, 2018–2022

By: Lawrence SurteesResearch Vice President, Communications


This IDC study, which is IDC Canada's first published estimate of the size and five-year forecast of the still-nascent business SD-WAN services market, focuses on the annual recurring revenue accruing to communication service providers and other firms from subscription and license of SD-WAN services, which are hosted and delivered by those providers to an enterprise customer. In this study, hosted/cloud SD-WAN revenue excludes SIP trunk sessions, which we class as a communication access service and forecast separately.

"Communication SPs are well positioned to capture emerging opportunities for SD-WAN managed services," says Lawrence Surtees, study author, principal analyst, and vice president of Communications Research at IDC Canada. "However, SD-WAN is a good example of a disruptive 'over-the-top' enterprise service spurring many entrants from the ICT ecosystem that will vie for market share."
