In conjunction with the launch of SDxCentral’s SDN Controller Report, we are pleased to join Ericsson, a leading SDN and NFV vendor, to look at how they are making SDN a reality for Service Providers through their products, pre-integrated solutions and a tried, tested and perfected network transformation framework.
If you are an IT executive, cloud architect or network architect at a Service Provider considering a comprehensive commercial SDN and NFV solution, you will want to join our webinar featuring Bala Thekkedath from Ericsson.
Ericsson believes that applying the concepts of software-defined networking (SDN) to service provider networks requires us to think more holistically than the most commonly talked about use cases for SDN. It requires us to think about a logically centralized control plane that covers both the data center and the WAN. It further requires orchestration that covers both physical and virtual network infrastructure with the ability to expose service capabilities directly to applications, enterprises and residential consumers.
The service provider SDN webinar will also touch upon the role SDN plays in operationalizing network functions virtualization (NFV). A combination of SDN and NFV not only decouples services from resources, but it completely detaches the lifecycle management of services from physical constraints. This is the foundation of true network agility. And agility is the pot of gold at the end of this transformation journey because from agility comes revenue and growth opportunities and from agility comes operational efficiency.
Don’t forget to download your own copy of the SDxCentral 2015 SDN Controller Report before Ericsson presents live on August 26th at 10:00am! We’ll be taking a closer look at the report and how Ericsson’s solutions impact SDN, SDN Controllers, and service provider SDN.
