Three vendors lead the pack for software-defined networking ( #SDN ) orchestration: #Cisco/Tail-f, #Nokia and #Ciena. That’s according to respondents in a questionnaire by IHS Markit, which on Wednesday revealed the results of a survey conducted with global service providers who have deployed or will deploy software-defined networking and network functions virtualization ( #NFV ).

“In our survey of global carriers, Cisco/Tail-f, Nokia and Ciena led all vendors in unaided brand awareness for SDN orchestration software. And Cisco/Tail-f and Nokia were also tops in SDN hardware and software under evaluation,” said Michael Howard, senior research director and advisor of carrier networks at IHS Markit.{ad}

The researcher asked the survey respondents to list their top three vendors for SDN orchestration. Cisco/Tail-f was by far the most popular – getting approximately 60 percent. Nokia trailed with about 45 percent, and Ciena finished just ahead of #Juniper and #Huawei in third place.
