Is your company's aging network stifling business innovation? A software-defined network (SDN) enables IT to orchestrate and automatically control the network according to high-level policies, thereby simplifying managing and provisioning the network. SDN enables business systems to request services from the network directly, rather than trusting the network to guesswork.
This white paper explains how IT agility is achieved via SDN's ability to dynamically apply business logic to network behavior. Extra bonus: a roadmap for building an open standards SDN environment that will enable your organization to better support and accelerate the introduction of new services.
