The More Flexible the Transport Network, the Better SDN Can Work
As you may have read, SDN is the next big thing in network control. SDN provides multi-layer network control and promises more dynamic and operationally simplified control over networks and services. One of the most exciting parts of SDN is the potential for programmable network control, where operators can customize network behaviors. The ultimate goal of SDN initiatives is to enable new services and utilize network resources more efficiently. To date, most of the effort in SDN has been within the data center and focused on Layer 2 and above devices. More recently, focus has begun to include networks outside the data center, specifically transport networks. [More]
