This webinar will provide a thorough analysis of SDN and give attendees some help to make an assessment of their organization’s readiness and willingness to adopt SDN.
In today’s telecom market, tighter margins, tougher competition and the insatiable demand for bandwidth are all forcing global carriers to innovate at the speed of light. Software-defined networking technology, or SDN, seems to be the answer to most of these challenges but as the concept continues gaining fervent adepts (and critics), it is becoming increasingly difficult to get unbiased information to make informed decisions.
This webinar will provide a thorough analysis of SDN and give attendees some help to make an assessment of their organization’s readiness and willingness to adopt SDN. This session will discuss, among other topics:
- The technology behind the concept
- What kind of networks are good fits for SDN
- The impact on organizational and operational cultures
- If your organization should buy or build
- The impact on equipment selection
- The experience of the speaker’s organization with SDN
This webinar will be presented by Shawn Morris, Director of IP Development at the Global IP Network of NTT Communications. Morris has been involved with SDN at NTT Communications for many years, even before it became the buzzword it is today, and he has presented on this topic in many international forums.
