From Adtran to ZTE, cable and telco vendors alike are beginning to reap the benefits of SDN and virtualization with the development of software-defined access solutions and propositions.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) is a new approach to designing, building and managing networks. The basic concept is that SDN separates the network’s control (brains) and forwarding (muscle) planes to make it easier to optimize each.
SDxCentral's experts continually curate a collection of SDN articles, white papers, videos and other resources to make it easier for members to learn about the concept, use cases and technology.
SDN technologies are diverse, making it difficult for network engineers to know what technologies they should learn to master.

Carrier virtualization, programmability and the massive data sets from machine learning and analytics are driving new requirements for data centers.
Network virtualization will allow companies to micro-segment traffic by application.
Organizations that implement network virtualization are starting to appreciate another advantage: It enables them to achieve compliance.
Hyperconverged infrastructure requires IT organizations to consider a scale out architecture.
While cloud computing represents a significant advance, it's really the network edge computing phenomenon that will transform the digital end user experience.
While software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) don’t necessarily require each other to add value to an enterprise, they are collectively being joined at the proverbial hip.
For as long as any of us can remember, fulfillment and assurance were two independent processes, mostly because they were conceived, operated and purchased by separate departments.
The NV market continues to grow and evolve, supporting many different technologies and vendor platforms as customers look for the right mix.
It’s becoming clear that a smarter NIC will be crucial to white boxes built for NFV and SDN applications.
The industry seeks to address interoperability among network virtualization (NV) implementations, but getting networking vendors to work together remains a challenge.
Industry growth is being hampered by a lack of IT professionals who have the skills required to deploy network virtualization (NV) and software-defined networking (SDN) in the enterprise.
In the move to the telco cloud, some key considerations are crucial in NFVI components selection.
