Virtualisation makes network management less expensive. In addition to reducing the cost of operational work, the type of switch for network applications is simply cheaper to purchase.
Netwerkvirtualisatie & -automatisering
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a network architecture approach that enables the network to be intelligently and centrally controlled, or ‘programmed,’ using software applications. This helps operators manage the entire network consistently and holistically, regardless of the underlying network technology.
What is network virtualisation & automation
With SDN, you can easily and automatically manage your network remotely. This guarantees you a secure, high-performance network that is both flexible and user-friendly. Thanks to management virtualisation, it is no longer necessary to execute network adjustments for each switch. This saves you valuable time that you can then invest in other important tasks.
What are the benefits?
This centralised holistic approach makes it easy to manage the network.
SDN provides greater visibility throughout the network. In traditional networking, any security that impacts traffic is overarching. With SDN, it’s granular. This means that engineers can selectively block malicious traffic throughout your network on a granular basis.
The chances of human error are significantly reduced.
What will you get?
- Visualisation of your current network structure.
- A virtual network overlay that allows you to disconnect the central management system from the physical network hardware.
- Consistent and timely content delivery.
- SDN lowers your CAPEX and OPEX.
Why is this a priority?
Your IT specialists do their best to keep the network secure and performing well. These efforts often come at the expense of flexibility and user-friendliness. At the same time, companies and developers want to be able to roll out their applications more and more rapidly. SDN is the ideal solution for making all of this possible.
