Understand and explore the benefits of SDN

Software-defined Networking (SDN) is a new way of deploying network infrastructure that is poised to change how networks are managed and controlled, as well as how network services are implemented. SDN is the evolution to a programmable and active network infrastructure. With WWT’s SDN Solution Workshops, our experts will show you how SDN integrates with best-of-class networking technology to reduce operational costs and improve network service and reliability.

During WWT’s SDN Solution Workshops, you’ll see how SDN has evolved from a high-level purist technology to include more technical demonstrations and network programming examples. As a Cisco Gold Certified Partner and award-winning systems integrator, WWT can help you evaluate whether SDN is a fit for your organization. WWT recommends the SDN Solution Workshops for organizations that want to explore the benefits firsthand and see exactly how  SDN can expand productivity while enhancing security and control.

Objectives

The WWT SDN Solution Workshops are two- to four-hour technical whiteboard and architectural sessions focused on exploring how SDN can address the technical and strategic requirements of your organization. The Workshops are designed to illustrate how the automation of provisioning, configuration and troubleshooting can free network engineering resources for more strategic tasks, and to lay out a strategy for how your organization can get started with SDN.

Benefits

The SDN Solution Workshops deliver expert insight into the proven best practices to plan, design, pilot, implement and properly scale SDN into production for your environment. WWT experts will provide a complete overview of the architectural components of SDN and help you determine SDN use cases as well as how to right size infrastructure for your SDN environment. We also will discuss how you can leverage SDN to support your existing network infrastructure, as well as key infrastructure requirements to fully implement SDN — from servers and storage to network fabric and endpoints.
