Today we are seeing an explosion of information consumption. Enterprises must reach a growing global audience that has moved beyond the browser to thousands of mobile and social apps on hundreds of connected devices. APIs power this new application and mobile driven economy. With new markets and opportunities come high expectations for application and service performance.
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a shift in network-based computing based on breaking existing physical boundaries on switches, routers, and controllers through well-defined APIs. This new era of networking innovation through software, driven by APIs and apps is creating increasingly agile, flexible and robust networking configurations.
