SDN

Hi Andrew -- from what you've seen, do these SDN use cases require a lot of new skills in the enterprise?

Re: SDN

@Suasn -- In many ways, yes, new skills are needed. More than ever before, there's a need to understand the underlying data that runs over the network -- and how to make the network more efficient for that specific data. QoS was a bit of a precurser for network engineers. They (primarily) had to identify voice/video traffic and use QoS to treat it differently compared to the rest of the traffic. When SDN fully takes hold, network admis will have to identify all critical applications and programatically adjust network settings so that they perform optimally.

Re: SDN

SDN is more about enhancing the ability to adapt the changing data/ network conditions. Although we are regulating these changes and demands today also without SDN. But catch is how do we capitalize on changing market conditions.

Re: SDN

Finally we have Network supplier Colt wherein they have unveiled an on-demand datacentre interconnect service based on a SDN, dubbed DCNet as a Service.

Always good post. This topic is very there as promised by NWC for this year. Do we really have what we want from SDN ?
