Top 10 SDN Solution Providers 2016

The emerging architecture of Software-defined Networking (SDN) is effectively addressing the cost demands and high bandwidth requirements of enterprises. This architecture decouples the network control and forwarding functions, enabling the network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services. With this functionality on-board, SDN is being implemented globally for accelerating application deployment while reducing IT costs through policy-enabled workflow automation. It also provides a complete view of the network for the administrators in a single screen through centrally managed controllers.

Additionally, SDN makes it easy for enterprises to support latest technologies like mobility, cloud computing, big data, and IoT that seek high performing and high availability networks. This has led enterprises’ shift to SDN from traditional methodologies of networking to prosper in a dynamic market place.
