SDN: The next steps

SDN: The next steps

Software Defined Networking technology is maturing, but for most shops it is still a question of figuring out how we get there from here.

Software Defined Networking technology is maturing and there are several real world use cases, but for most shops it is still a question of figuring out how we get there from here. In this Network World special report we analyze the promise and the options:

* Network Virtualization and SDN: A Reality Check

A look at the key milestones in terms of the development of SDN, the types of SDN consumers that are emerging, and evaluation criteria.

* Understanding SDN Vendor Ecosystems

In this piece we review how network vendors are building relationships across the industry around their SDN platforms, examining what they are trying to achieve and what it means for consumers.

* Incremental SDN: Automating network device configuration

While some organizations aren't ready to fully migrate to SDN, many are evaluating how to automate network provisioning, gaining the error-free efficiency virtualization engineers have been enjoying for some time. Automation is a logical next step in the SDN migration journey. An overview look at emerging tools.

* Where the standards stand

Network World Editor in Chief John Dix sits down for Q&As with Dan Pitt, executive director of the Open Networking Foundation, and Neela Jacques, Executive Director of the OpenDaylight project.
