Attendees of the presentation will get to hear about the ongoing migration to logically centralized, software-based control of multi-layer and multi-vendor provider networks.
This migration allows for the deployment of more open and programmable Carrier Ethernet NaaS.
Elaborating on Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Cyan says that SDN is popular because it can transform data center networks. Also, all service provider networks are more likely to gain from the SDN approach.
Cyan is global supplier of software-defined metro network solutions that include multi-layer packet-optical transport platforms, software and SaaS (News - Alert) systems, and comprehensive professional services.
The company was in news earlier this year when Frank Wiener, vice president of marketing at Cyan, hosted, "USF/CAF Reforms: Status, Implications & Opportunities," the first installment in a webinar series, on Tuesday, June 19, 2012.
Cyan teamed with one of the nation's top communications law firms to provide ongoing expertise in this webinar series.
