Software-Defined Networking Strategies for Campus WANs

Speed is the name of the game when it comes to your software-defined network (SDN) strategy. Unfortunately, when leveraging OpenFlow, using the wrong switch can be detrimental to speeds and cause issues when it comes to determining actual speeds throughout the network.

In this E-Guide from SearchNetworking.com, explore the issues associated with troubled OpenFlow switches, which vendors carry them, and details about an SDN strategy that will not cause the issues that these other switches do.

In addition, discover details about a product coming out next year that will help you manage your campus network as one giant switch stack.
