Evolution of Intelligent Networks: SDN, OPEX, and COTS. The Intelligent Network (both enterprise and telecom) is a critical part of the overall IT infrastructure. The Intelligent Network requires scalability, reliability, security, quality of service, programmability, and manageability. The three (interrelated) leading factors impacting the Evolution of the Intelligent Network are:
- SDN: A range of software technologies, including OpenFlow, that bring increased flexibility, programmability, and virtualization to the network.
- OPEX: Larger, more complex networks and hyperscale data centers have dramatically increased the network management challenges. Product solutions are required to ease administrative burdens, reduce provisioning times, and increase automation.
- COTS: Leveraging IT technologies such as x86, merchant silicon, and open source software to more rapidly bring networking technologies to market, improve flexibility, and improve price/performance.
