Software-Defined Networking (SDN) on OpenStack is the hottest trend that helps service providers transform their networks. NFV allows service providers transform their network paradigm from fixed, closed and vendor-specific infrastructure to an open, scalable and service-agile environment. SDN/NFV is a new approach to managing networks that shifts network management from hardware to software. SDN separates the control plane and data plane, allowing administrators to configure networks of switches and routers easily from a central control panel and adjust network-wide traffic on the fly to meet changing business needs based on Virtual Network Functions.
Bell.One works to deliver on the promise of OpenStack powered clouds with SDN/NFV solutions.
