Software-Defined Networking (SDN): An Opportunity?

Presented by

Prof. Ahmed Banafa, College of Engineering, San Jose State University

About this talk

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, making it ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today's applications. This architecture decouples the network control and forwarding functions (Routing), enabling the network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services, which can treat the network as a logical or virtual entity. Join Professor Ahmed Banafa, College of Engineering at SJSU to discuss new emerging opportunities in software-defined networks and what this means for your network infrastructure and internal communications.
