Jake Snyder of Transmit Failure comments:
We are literally days away from the 7th installment of Wireless Field Day. I’m really hoping (borderline begging) to hear a couple vendors talk about their Software Defined Network (SDN) solutions. Now before you hop on the “Shut-up about SDN” bandwagon, here’s why I see this as a hot topic right now.
I see SDN changing the way we build networks, and not just in the datacenter. In the past we built large L2 networks and we eventually hit scaling limitations. Then we started building routed networks, which solved the scalability problems, and introduced a whole new set of challenges around management of L2 domains, L2 adjacency requirements and troubleshooting routing protocols.
Jake has a great look at the world of SDN and the impact it will have on wireless networks. Be sure to watch Wireless Field Day 7 to hear all about it.
