How It Works

Why Go Software Defined?

Benefits of a Software Defined (SDN) Approach

  • Strong ROI, by replacing expensive hardware with commodity hardware.
  • Software defined means faster deployment. The system can be deployed in as little as one week (typically 3-4 weeks) covering all employees and all locations.
  • More flexibility and agility post-deployment. For example changes can be made for example in an ECDN configuration to support a specific live event, then changed back when the event is over.
  • Growth, with a SD approach, new features and tools can easily be  added incrementally over time.
