Software-defined networking (SDN) is becoming a hot topic at many organizations because of its perceived advantages over traditional networking. But a transition to SDN is an ambitious project requiring significant research for networking professionals. To help get you started, we offer this list of SDN-related resources.
NetCraftsmen’s Terry Slattery has compiled a list of informative resources that serve as a great introduction to SDN for networking professionals.
Check out this detailed presentation on SDN from Terry and Bill Koss from Plexxi given to our Chesapeake Mid-Atlantic Users Group.
Craig Hill, Distinguished Engineer at Cisco, presents "Embracing SDN in the Next Gen Network."
Terry presents a more Cisco-focused version of his Interop talk "Using SDN APIs for Communications."
Have a look at the blog posts our NetCraftsmen technologists have written about SDN over the years.
Terry Slattery delivered a presentation on how to use SDN to power enterprise communication at Enterprise Connect 2014. See it here.
