An application delivery networking platform utilizes real-time data to prioritize applications and related access. An application delivery network operates with two primary components – Application Delivery Controllers (ADC) and Wide Area Network (WAN) Optimization Controller.
The ADC includes a load balancer that focuses on web traffic distribution across multiple servers. The ADC is installed at the data centre end of the application delivery network, and handles the caching, compression, and offloading of Security Socket Layer (SSL) encryption.
The WOC is located at the data centre end, as well as near the end-point. The WOC focuses on the optimisation of application delivery network latency, which helps enhance the performance of applications. The WAN optimization controller handles caching, compression, de-duplication, and protocol spoofing in the application delivery network infrastructure.
Application delivery controllers, as well as WAN optimization controllers, function together in the application delivery network to improve the speed, availability, and scalability of applications. In the application delivery network market study, Future Market Insights (FMI) has segmented the global application delivery network market by product, end-user environment, deployment type, vertical, and region.
With regards to the end-user environments of application delivery networks, the global application delivery network market is segmented into cloud service providers and telecommunication service providers, among other enterprise networks.
The telecommunication service provider end-use segment of the application delivery network market is projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period among all the application delivery network end-use environments. This segment is also expected to continue to hold the second-largest market share of the global application delivery network market throughout the projected period of 2018 to 2028.
Increasing consumption of web- and application-based rich media to drive the global application delivery network market during the forecast period
Various technological advancements in video formats are leading to a radical shift from Standard Definition (SD) to High Definition (HD) platforms, such as 4K and 8K, which results in significantly larger sizes of files. For instance, the bit-rate for a 4K resolution video is approximately 18 Mbps, which is twice the base HD video bit-rate and nine times higher than the SD video bit-rate.
This factor is expected to drive the adoption of content delivery and application delivery networks to deliver rich static as well as dynamic content across various devices without compromising the quality.
Researchers focusing on enhancing application delivery network solutions to ensure Deep Packet Inspection (DPI)
Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) can deduce a message’s application and function, together with the sender and the recipient, and their individual locations. For instance, the classification and visibility feature of an application delivery network should be able to determine whether the HTTP XML messages for a company’s product catalogue are transaction requests to buy products or just random queries. Accordingly, the requests for purchase are forwarded to a firewall and a specific XML gateway, while the inquiries are not.

South Asia’s application delivery network market to witness highest growth rate among all the regional markets during the forecast period
With regards to the regional markets, the application delivery network market in North America is projected to continue to hold the largest market share of the global application delivery network market throughout the forecast period. The application delivery network market in Europe is estimated to continue holding the second-largest market share of the global application delivery network market. The moderate concentration of application delivery network technology researchers and suppliers is driving the global application delivery network.
The application delivery network market in South Asia is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. High investments made by companies and national governments, along with the ever-increasing competition in the market, are estimated to enable the application delivery network market in South Asia to grow at a relatively stronger rate during the forecast period.
The transition of enterprises towards in-house content and application delivery network infrastructure is a major challenge faced by the global application delivery network market on a global scale.
Application delivery network prioritizes voice-traffic at the front line for application services
Controlling the flow of information and traffic is crucial to guarantee that voice-traffic is treated in an appropriate manner. The application delivery network prioritizes voice-traffic at the front line for application services. Application delivery network developers are adding features that are likely to enable the network to understand voice-traffic and decide to not accelerate it, because acceleration does not make a difference in the case of voice-traffic that has already been highly compressed.
Some of the key participants in the application delivery network market profiled in the global application delivery network market study include Riverbed Technology; Radware; Aryaka Networks; F5 Networks, Inc.; Array Networks, Inc.; Symantec Corporation; A10 Networks, Inc.; Oracle; Verizon; Hewlett Packard Enterprise Development LP; Juniper Networks, Inc.; Dell Inc.; Citrix Systems, Inc.; and Cisco Systems, Inc.
