Upcoming webinar on Impact of SDN on Traditional Neworking

As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, the need for more agile and flexible IT services continues to increase.  Software Defined Networking, or SDN, has emerged as a viable solution that addresses the need for security, virtualization, manageability and mobility in today’s networks.

In an upcoming webinar I will be co-hosting with my colleague Ali Kafel, we will cut through the hype and talk about how SDN  can go from a concept to a solution.  We will also discuss emerging deployment models that extend beyond the data center into the entire enterprise network.

I welcome you to register for the webinar (“Software Defined Networks (SDN) – Where will it take Networking?”) taking place on Thursday, April 4 at 11 am EDT for what is sure to be a great discussion around this hot topic in the industry.
