Top 20 SDN Solution Companies - 2016

Networks have become an absolutely essential element in today’s modern business climate, providing the vital communication links that organizations need in order to run their applications, deliver services, and be competitive. Software Defined Networking (SDN) represents a whole new way of looking at how networks are configured, controlled, and operated. With SDN, an organization’s network can quickly and programmatically respond to dynamic network events, such as workloads being deployed or de-provisioned, or network congestion issues. Traffic for different applications or customers can be controlled separately, or sent through different network services based on specific requirements.
