Consequently, it is important to start with SDN's foundation structure and identify its building blocks before highlighting its potential opportunities for service providers. It is also important to examine how SDN will play a role in the evolution of the network. The potential of SDN, as well as its effect on the telecommunications and wider ICT sector, is significant. In this Insight, IDC aims to examine whether SDN is a viable avenue for telecom operators in the GCC region.
