From the campus to the data center, the manner in which we run our networks has been excruciatingly slow to evolve over time.
Questions such as “Why does the network seem slow?” or “Why is it taking so long to bring on this new application?” are commonplace. For many businesses, the network is in their way.
The result? An agile, centrally-managed, automated network that allows IT departments to focus on business intent while the network itself focuses on translating that intent to policy.
The seeds of software-defined networking (SDN) are already taking root in the data center and now the WAN. Expect the SDN seeds to start sprouting in campus fabrics for both wired and wireless environments.
