Open Exchange: SDN, Openflow & Network Virtualization
 
Reshaping the Network

Networking is at a crossroads, with demand for bandwidth accelerating exponentially and new technologies poised to expand the possibilities for network virtualization and interoperability like never before.

Software Defined Networking (SDN)/Network Virtualization promises to reshape enterprise networks, enabling companies to keep pace with fluid computing environments powered by virtual servers and cloud by decoupling network control from the data forwarding plane.

The advantages include everything from: 
  • Advanced capabilities
  • Simplified architecture
  • Ease of management
  • Increased resource utilization
