Network automation refers to automating the operations of a computer network. It can be deployed through the integration of hardware and software solutions which can help in managing and executing network processes. Network automation plays a vital role in network virtualization and SD (Software defined) networking, allowing automated provisioning of virtual network functions, for instance, virtual load balancing. Incorporation of network automation benefits in improving efficiency, lowering operational expenses, reducing the possibility of errors, and improving business continuity & agility. Automation can be deployed in various types of networks such as data center networks, cloud networks, wireless and WAN (Wide Area Networks) through application programming interface. Leveraging on the features above, companies can deliver higher level of services with more consistency across branches and geographies.
The rise in adoption of virtual and software-defined wide area network infrastructure across enterprises and demand for bandwidth management across SME are primarily driving the global network automation market. The demand for advanced networking solutions by major organizations and heavy investments in research and development of network automation is fuelling the market growth. However, the open source network automation solutions are going to fetter the market growth during the forecast period.
The global network automation market is segmented on the basis of the component, network infrastructure, deployment, organization size, vertical and region. On the basis of the component, the segment is further classified into solution and services. The solution can be further segmented into SD-WAN, network automation tools, and intent-based working. The services can be further classified into professional and managed services. On the basis of network infrastructure, the segment is further classified into physical network configuration, virtual network configuration, and hybrid network configuration. On the basis of deployment, the segment is further classified into on-cloud and on-premise. On the basis of organization size, the segment is further classified into SME and large enterprises. The network automation is widely deployed in many verticals like IT and Telecommunications, media & entertainment, energy and utilities and many others.
