The monumental rise of enterprise SDN - are you prepared?

22 Mar 2017

The benefits of SDN for the Cloud and data center are well known but the benefits of SDN for the Enterprise aren’t understood as well as they should be.

Allied Telesis is a network infrastructure/telecommunications company headquartered in Japan with offices in New Zealand and Australia and is here to shed light on the unknown.

Famous for its industry leading SDN solutions, Allied Telesis recently teamed up with the Open Networking Foundation to deploy an SDN wireless/wired pure OpenFlow solution.

Dan Pitt, ONF Executive Director, says deploying the entire pure OpenFlow wired/wireless network was simple and extremely fast.

“The entire deployment took less than one hour to unpack, rack the equipment, and make it available for use,” he explains.

“Running our office on a pure OpenFlow network gives me great satisfaction. Installation was fast, and the system can scale to 2000 users if need be.”

The time is now, take hold of your company’s networking capabilities like ONF did and grasp a better understanding of the SDN solutions available to you.

Join Allied Telesis to learn how they approach Enterprise SDN, how to avoid forklift upgrades by using SDN protocols such as OpenFlow and what steps you can take today to best prepare for future SDN initiatives.
