Software Defined Networks (SDNs) are at the forefront of the networking hype cycle and are all the rage in the media and on the conference circuit. Arista Networks has partnered with TorreyPoint to cut through the hype cycle and bring an informative, interactive, and educational seminar with Arista CEO, Jayshree Ullal, and TorreyPoint CTO, Doug Marschke.
Arista CEO Jayshree Ullal will present how SDN will change application delivery in the enterprise and how those organizations that adapt and leverage this exciting innovation will thrive and lead in this space. The agenda also includes a keynote presentation by TorreyPoint CTO Doug Marschke highlighting how TorreyPoint is investing in SDN and what customers are requiring for SDN.
SDNs promises to solve many network challenges from network virtualization, to tap aggregation, to replacing and changing MPLS core network architectures – in this session we will explore what’s real today, what may be possible in the future, and how to plan your network architecture to maximize your options and flexibility.
