' General Session | Sustainable Networking Innovation Through Collective Intelligence: Software Defined Networking'
Private and public cloud applications, usage models, and scale requirements are significantly influencing network infrastructure design while highlighting the importance of scalability. Combined with compute, virtualization and network demands, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has gained attention as a solution that promises application-driven dynamic network configuration and monitoring. With SDN overlay, OpenFlow and hybrid implementations on the rise, Broadcom is at the forefront of developing key SDN and virtualization features into silicon that will be deployed in data center switch products over this next business cycle.
This General Session will highlight the collective intelligence sourced by SDN across the network infrastructure and the technology’s role in furthering network innovation by encouraging visibility and diagnosis of network infrastructure issues. As a founding member of the Open Networking Foundation and active contributor to the ecosystem as a whole, Broadcom has been instrumental in bringing SDN to the forefront with early specifications and deployments.
