IDC Innovators: Disaggregated Routing Platforms, 2019
IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue <$100 million that have demonstrated either a groundbreaking business model or an innovative new technology — or both. This IDC Innovators study profiles three emerging vendors in disaggregated routing platforms: Arrcus, DriveNets, and Volta Networks.
"Hyperscalers were the first to embrace and derive compelling value from network disaggregation in datacenters of unprecedented scale. As the cloud effect reverberates across markets and industries, however, network disaggregation has evolved, moving both up the stack into routing and into a wide range of use cases, not only in datacenters but also in carrier core and edge deployments and broader telco cloud strategies. IDC recognizes a new wave of start-up vendors addressing needs and opportunities for disaggregated routing platforms." — Brad Casemore, VP research, Datacenter Networks, and Rajesh Ghai, research director, Carrier Network Infrastructure
