Analyzes the technology and business issues associated with SDN
NEW YORK, May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitch Wagner, West Coast Bureau Chief of Light Reading (www.lightreading.com), the market-leading online community for the global communications sector, published the story "The Three Faces of SDN," which summarizes the role of Software Defined Networking (SDN) in next-generation telecommunications networks.
As SDN becomes more popular, vendors wrestle to promote visions of the technology that put their own products in the best light. In his own irreverent style, Wagner separated the vendors into three distinct buckets: Pure Players, the loosey-goosey school, and the zombie army of the White Walkers (inspired by the TV series Game of Thrones).
Wagner analyzes the technology and business issues associated with SDN. He discusses the vision of SDN, the goals of vendors, and the perception of carriers. He touches upon software and hardware changes and the combination of SDN and NFV. Wagner predicts that the industry will begin to see niches where SDN is valuable, but that the technology has a long way to go before it becomes mainstream.
The story provides a whirlwind overview of the SDN strategies of more than a dozen companies, including Big Switch Networks, Pica8, Cumulus Networks, Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks, Brocade Communications Systems, VMware, PlumGRID, Midokura, Google, Amazon, CenturyLink, and Verizon Communications.
