With software-defined networking (SDN) well on its way toward the mainstream, customers are more interested than ever in exploring how it can be applied to solve real-life problems. One important yet often overlooked opportunity lies in application user experience. An upcoming DemoFriday will look at how Kemp Technologies uses SDN to improve application quality of experience (QoE) and guarantee SLA satisfaction.
Traditional networks lack end-to-end visibility of network paths, and they do not always route applications optimally. The DemoFriday will show how KEMP’s SDN Adaptive technology accesses critical flow pattern information from the SDN controller to make more intelligent forwarding decisions and enhance application delivery QoE.
Presenters will explain how SDN Adaptive bridges application traffic steering and security with the network intelligence and visibility that an SDN fabric provides. The technology dynamically enriches Layer 4 and Layer 7 load balancing policies with Layer 2 information extracted from an SDN controller. By using extracted metrics such as network congestion, SDN Adaptive then routes applications dynamically to the optimal server via the best path available on the switching infrastructure.
KEMP Technologies Vice-President of Product Engineering Iain Kenney and Director Jason Dover will demonstrate how the SDN Adaptive approach provides the visibility into the network necessary to enhance QoE and service levels. Their presentation will show the importance of SDN to application delivery as well as:
- Why application context is key for user experience
- How using SDN in a network enhances service levels and application delivery QoE
- How SDN Adaptive technology has been implemented to solve common application network challenges that affect user experience
Register for the DemoFriday below, and learn how SDN Adaptive allows IT and network managers to provide guaranteed SLAs and deliver reliable service quality for end users.
