As cloud, mobility, and other trends create more complex architectures, networks must be able to adapt in terms of security, scalability, and manageability. Software-defined networking (SDN) is an ideal technology to simplify your infrastructure.
The basis of SDN is automation of control of your network, which allows application services to run independent from the underlying hardware. Most networks, however, rely on network infrastructure (devices) that requires a great deal of manual administration. Changing or expanding these networks for new capabilities, applications, or users is time consuming and expensive. SDN facilitates automated network management and makes it easier and more cost effective to integrate and administer applications.
Listen to this webcast where Tim Allen, Network Practice Director for Connection Public Sector Solutions, shares the ins and outs of SSD and how to leverage the cost-effective infrastructure in your own enterprise.
