I’ll cut to the chase here. In my opinion 2015 will be the year that network and application convergence finally deliver for enterprises of all sizes. I am of course talking about Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV). After the large operational behemoths like AT&T successfully tested the waters of SDN and NFV in 2014, in 2015 we shall see the innovation become more and more main-stream. We will also see the ascendency of differing approaches to SDN and NFV, perhaps routers and switches which leverage virtualisation out of the box. Juniper, being the de facto open standards network appliances vendor, will be bringing some interesting additions to their SDN offerings which should benefit many companies and the industry in general.
