NEC Software-Defined Networking
NEC’s Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solves existing network problems to enable highly complex social systems and increasingly intricate systems built with information and communications technology (ICT) to be constructed more simply and flexibly.
Why is SDN better than Traditional Networking:
- Traditional Networking is static and does not accommodate today’s needs such as server virtualization, cloud computing
- Inability to scale efficiently as one cannot afford to keep excess capacity since traffic is exploding exponentially and companies are cutting IT networking budgets
- Vendor dependent
- Applying consistent IT policies becomes a challenge
