Automate and program your network faster with SICL and Cisco Software Defined Networking (SDN).
Find out how SDN is designed to make a network flexible and agile. It lets you design, build, and manage networks, separating the control and forwarding planes. As a result, the control plane is directly programmable, and it abstracts the underlying infrastructure for applications and network services. Whether you are a Data Centre Manager or a Network Manager, this essential knowledge-transfer event will help you to fully understand the implications and benefits for your organisation.
Join Cisco and SICL for this free event at DoubleTree by Hilton in Leeds City Centre to find out how your business can achieve significant cost savings whilst gaining limitless capacity and scalability on-demand, by using technology from Cisco.
What is Software Defined Networking?
Software defined networking (SDN) developed out of the need to automate, scale and optimise networking for applications that may be provided either via an enterprise datacentre, a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), or as-a-service (public cloud).
At SICL, we view SDN as a centralised approach to the management of network infrastructure. SDN provides a number of important benefits for network and IT operators through controller-enabled, network visibility and automation.
Ability to programmatically automate network configurations, increasing scalability and reliability
Increased flexibility and agility for changing the network operation to enable an application or address a task
Centralized visibility of the network topology, network elements and their operation across the infrastructure
Watch this video to learn how you can automate your data centre and free up resources for more important tasks and more interesting projects with software defined networking.
Watch this video to learn how containers and microservices are transforming data centre network needs. See how Cloud Scale technology delivers the SDN routing and address scale needed.
Beyond automation: What are the limits of SDN?
While software-defined networks (SDNs) have largely automated the process of network management, organisations now require even greater capabilities from their networks in order to manage their own digital transformation.
Reduce complexity by decoupling the control and data planes, while making automation highly secure and scalable.
