Software Defined Networking (SDN) Adoption & Provisioning


Legacy network infrastructures have become very complex and cumbersome to manage due to hardware centric approach, interoperability challenges, common manual configurations, closed & proprietary protocols, management processes hardcoded into the underlying hardware platform, and inefficient use of network resources. Traditional network architectures are vendor-dependent bringing unnecessary complexity, and the inability to effectively scale and perform at high volumes. As a result, networks are ill-suited to meet the requirements of today’s enterprises, modern Internet (including IoT) & Cloud computing technologies, service providers and end-users. SDN addresses these issues by being flexible, manageable, uncomplicated, reliable, cost-effective, and adjustable; targeting to accommodate the high-bandwidth requirements and the needs of today’s demanding applications.

SDN decouples the control and data planes, also the virtual resources remain uncoupled from the physical resources, turning the network control into directly programmable platform and the underlying hardware architecture to be abstracted for database layered systems, applications and network & security services.


The following highlights the key benefits Software-Defined Networking (SDN) can offer your company:

  • centralizing management and control of networking devices from multiple vendors
  • accommodating & supporting ‘Big Data’ needs
  • reducing overall hardware & infrastructure complexity
  • detecting and managing network failures more quickly and easily
  • SD-WAN is designed to prioritize Business-critical traffic & sensitive real-time services (e.g., VoIP); Featuring capabilities to effectively direct the traffic over the best route
  • Boosting the overall WAN performance & improving WAN agility through SD-WAN
  • delivering complete visibility and management control over the entire network
  • improving network infrastructure security at a granular level
  • simplifying network update
  • introducing Plug-and-Play technology & instant availability of new services
  • providing capability to control any OpenFlow-enabled network device from any vendor
  • delivering a fully programmable & automated networks
  • significantly reducing complexity by automating time-consuming manual tasks
  • increasing IT agility by delivering the ability to customize the network architectures
  • introducing centralized management and control with expanded self-monitoring & automation capabilities; thus eliminating the need to configure every single switch or router in the forwarding plane to meet the most demanding Business requirements
  • better user experience by dynamically adapting to end-user needs
  • facilitating & supporting new business and revenue models
  • encouraging and stimulating Innovation across your Business
  • creating additional revenue streams
  • improving decision making in your organization
  • significantly reducing capital expenditures (CAPEX) & operating expenses (OPEX) costs
  • enabling self-service provisioning & rapid adoption of Cloud-based services
