Special Report: Software-Defined Networks
SDN technology could transform communications networks and reduce costs
With advances in IT and cloud computing, the increasing number of intelligent machines, and the advent of the Internet of Things, the traffic on telecommunications networks is expected to skyrocket. Meanwhile, hardware costs are tumbling and more open-source software is available. It’s clear a change is needed in how networks are designed and operated.
Reinventing Communications Networks
IEEE sets the stage for software-defined networks
Today’s telecommunications networks are rather static and complex, involving equipment such as transmission nodes, routers, switches, and middleboxes, including firewalls, network address translators, and intrusion-detection systems. The IP packet traffic that flows from them—and where it goes—is controlled by management and control rules and policies. Management covers faults, configuration, accounting, performance, and security.
