Software Defined Networking (SDN) is changing the way networks are designed, built and operated to achieve greater flexibility and significant reduction in capital and operational expenses. SDN is an architectural approach that separates the data and control planes in the core and transport layer of networks using an SDN Controller (SDN-C). SDN enables faster service deployment and simplifies configuration by abstracting the network into an API. Software Defined Networking makes cloud orchestration complete by providing better visibility and control of the underlying networks to elastic cloud applications and enables quick and efficient new service provisioning through a centralized SDN Controller, thereby increasing business agility.
ALTEN Calsoft Labs has been working on SDN since 2010 starting with the industry’s first OpenFlow 1.0 protocol implementation for market leading Datacenter switches deployed by Tier-1 carriers. Since then, our SDN Center of Excellence has been offering product engineering services including OpenDaylight Controller Development, SDN Application Development, SDN-NFV Integration and more, to several established Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEMs) and new SDN Controller & Application vendors.
ALTEN Calsoft Labs offers consulting on your SDN roadmap and assist you with PoCs, R&D projects and SDN deployment projects as your trusted professional services partner.
