Evolving SDN: tackling strategic, technology, and operational challenges for web-scale deployments

Software-defined networking has finally evolved to address key gaps plaguing businesses trying to capitalize on emerging cloud-enabled architectures. It offers a level of operational efficiency, interoperability, and scale thus far impossible in traditional network infrastructure. Innovations in pervasively networked software are enabling key innovations in virtualization, automation, and context-aware service delivery. Carriers, and large enterprises in particular, are looking to deploy software that helps them modernize their networks to better support the onslaught of mobile, distributed, and data-intensive applications and cloud-enabled services necessary to compete.
