IT networking is the construction, design, and use of network equipment to allow groups of computing devices to exchange data over both wired and wireless networks. The market covers networking hardware, software, and services, including virtual networks, servers, network management and security. Two growing areas of IT networking are less bound by specific IT networking hardware, relying instead on software transmissions of data. The software-defined networking market is forecast to reach 13.8 billion U.S. dollars worldwide in 2021. The more established virtual private network (VPN) market is expected to reach over 31 billion U.S. dollars in size by 2021, with the majority of its revenue derived from Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) backbones run by large network carriers.
A recent spate of initial public offerings, high-profile mergers and acquisitions, and litigation has thrust intellectual property (IP) into an increasingly critical position in global economics especially in the networking industry. However, many organizations often fail to understand the value of and the risks to their IP, even when that IP accounts for a high percentage of the company’s value.
