A realistic look at SDN by network management veteran, John Strassner. SDN has been touted as a panacea for all networking ills, but what can SDN really do?
John is an engineering executive with 30+ years of experience in industry and academic environments, specializing in innovative research leading to new products and disruptive technologies. Was previously a Cisco Fellow, Motorola Fellow, and am a TeleManagement Forum Distinguished Fellow. I am currently the Group CTO for the Software Labs of Huawei's American Research Center, where I am responsible for defining and prototyping disruptive ICT management technologies that involve SDN, autonomics, applications of AI for managing behavior, the use of information and data models in conjunction with ontologies and various forms of logic and other types of reasoning, and advances in languages.
