What benefits can SDN offer your organization?
Most frequent questions and answers
What is SDN?
Software-defined networking (SDN) allows you to design, build, and manage networks by separating the control and data planes. As a result, the control plane becomes directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure for applications and network services is abstracted, leading to a simplified and scalable solution.
What is the relationship between SDN and Intent-Based Networking?
Software-defined networking lays the foundation for automated network management.
Intent-based networking builds on this technology by closing the gap between business intent and network capabilities, resulting in simplified operations and comprehensive security across your entire network architecture.
