Re: SDN numbers
I really was not being critical about the numbers, but trying to make the point that various market estimates related to SDN should probably only be viewed as providing a sense of how this market might grow going forward since we have no historical data upon which to forecast the market with any accuracy.
Something else that comes to mind is that much of the SDN activity currently is targeted at the at the data center. Service providers, as far as I know, are taking a much more cautious approach, although I'm pretty sure they too will embrace SDN. Yet another market for SDN is the campus network--again I'm not hearing much at this time about SDN in the campus.
