What is Software Defined Networking?
SDN is the long-awaited answer to the problems posed by complex and expensive networking environments. With a traditional network, each element – like a core switch or router – has to be configured manually to do a certain task, which takes time and means relying on IT specialists.
With SDN, the network is configured centrally, which means changes can be automated and made quickly, in response to new business and application demands. We’re already seeing how SDN technology is enabling new solutions.
