Organizations are committed to digital transformation and using advanced technology to solve big problems. But implementing a digital transformation strategy is challenging—especially if you are relying on outdated infrastructure.
Software-defined networking (SDN) helps you achieve your digital transformation objectives by decoupling the control, data, and packet-forwarding planes of the network stack. This change makes it easier to automate asset management and control resources from a single pane of glass. SDN is a maturing technology and now provides practical options for centralizing orchestration and policy management, migrating to zero-touch provisioning, and extending visibility out to the network edge.
SDN increases business agility by making it easier to configure changes to on-premise, cloud, and hybrid networks. It provides solutions for enabling an infrastructure that supports new models such as DevOps for application and service delivery and solutions tied to the internet of things (IoT).
Along with improving agility, SDN helps lower costs by centralizing network management and enabling automation to deploy applications and services without human intervention. It also helps to avoid creating data siloes and more efficiently manage higher levels of network traffic. Optimizing these resources will become increasingly important as 5G and Wi-Fi 6 access points become common.
SDN technologies are still evolving, which is why it is important to partner with a team that has in-depth knowledge to guide a successful migration. Every journey to digital transformation is unique, so we work with you to implement the strategy that fits your business needs and budget. Depending on your priorities and objectives, we can help you to implement a complete SDN solution or upgrade your existing infrastructure to run a pure software overlay or hardware underlay. We focus specifically on scalability and security since these criteria are critical to project success. Each solution also supports open standards to simplify integration and provide an agile platform for handling future growth.
