Software Defined Networking (SDN): A Potential 'Game Changer'

Posted on

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a technological approach to designing and managing networks that has the potential to increase operator agility, lower costs, and disrupt the vendor landscape. Its initial impact has been within leading-edge data centres, but it also has the potential to spread into many other network areas, including core public telecoms networks.

Our latest briefing analyses its potential benefits and use cases, outlines strategic scenarios and key action plans for telcos, summarises key vendor positions, and why it is so important for both the telco and vendor communities to adopt and exploit SDN capabilities now. We'll also be discussing SDN at the EMEA Brainstorm, 5-6 June in London. Email to find out more.
