E-Guide: Software-defined networking could make Network-as-a-Service a reality

Cover

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (Paas) and especially Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) need no introductions. Organizations are already sold on their benefits.

How?

Read this expert e-guide to find out the role of OpenFlow as an SDN architecture, its benefits, limitations and more. Furthermore, discover why OpenFlow NaaS would offer enterprises more control over data center and inter-data center cloud traffic than is available today with Ethernet or IP.
