SDN deployments happening today are about as cutting edge as it gets and are being done so with all the risks associated with being at the forefront. With SDN, switches - either physical or virtual, are controlled by a set of centralised Network Operating Systems (NOS) or SDN Controllers offering a far greater degree of flexibility and efficiency, as well as a reducing the costs associated with upgrades. In 2011, Google implemented an SDN solution across its global internal data centre Wide Area Network (WAN) illustrating a successful migration to SDN - a first in the industry on such a scale. According to Jim Wanderer, the Director of Engineering at Google, “the development, testing and operations experience has reinforced our belief that SDN is the future for networking”. And it has not just caught Google’s attention - SDN is under review by a group of Telcos, including AT&T, BT, China Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, Telefonica and Verizon. SDN has its own set of unique issues to be resolved by the leaders of today and in this talk we will discuss some of those together with examining SDNs place in the Telco market. This is an informed seminar examining the current state of SDN in the telco world, representing a unique opportunity to gain a concise understanding of advancements in this field.
