Driven by the need for efficient infrastructure and increased mobility, adoption of Software Defined Network technology has globally accelerated in recent years from sales of $10 million in 2007 to $252 million last year. Companies are increasingly turning towards a software-centric approach as they move beyond traditional networking methods.
SDN promises easier and more dynamic interactions with the network, carrying with it benefits for carriers and enterprises, as well as gains in service agility and cost reduction. Whitehall Media’s 3rd annual SDN conference will clarify the advantages of network virtualisation and OpenFlow deployment in a bid to determine the full transformational potential of SDN in large enterprise.
Our event will help senior network, technology and business leaders to make informed technology planning and investment decisions as they transition towards virtualised networking. It will also enable professionals charged with purchasing, deploying and transforming their network architecture to define and justify the business case for SDN implementation.
