SDN: A flexible, programmatic framework to optimize the delivery and management of network services.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) is a new way of deploying network infrastructure that is changing the way networks are managed and controlled, and how network services are implemented. SDN is also called open networking, networking programmability and active networking.
Shrinking budgets and ever-tighter deadlines make the ability to quickly and efficiently manage, configure, spin up and secure networks essential.
SDN allows organizations to simplify and accelerate network operations through automated provisioning, network virtualization, Network Function Virtualization (NFV), service chaining and centralized policy and configuration management. It provides security improvements and enables application mobility, all the while reducing costs by extending the life of network infrastructure while requiring fewer dedicated resources for its management.
As a Cisco Gold Certified Partner, ACI Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) and award-winning systems integrator, WWT can help you determine if SDN is a good fit for your organization. We can show you how to leverage SDN to support your existing network infrastructure, as well as guide you through the requirements for a fully implement SDN, from servers and storage to network fabric and endpoints.
