Research and Markets: Software-Defined Networking: A Path to Self-Aware UC&C Infrastructure
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q7t22r/softwaredefined)
has announced the addition of the "Software-Defined
Networking: A Path to Self-Aware UC&C Infrastructure"
report to their offering.
Will Unified Communications (News - Alert) Become the Killer App for
Software-Defined Campus Networks?
Software-defined networking (SDN) represents a significant shift in
network architecture and administrator, and brings the hope of a network
truly friendly to bandwidth-intensive unified communications and
collaboration (UC&C) applications. This market insight will discuss the
benefits, challenges, and market opportunities for extending SDN
technologies to the access layer or campus network in support of
increasingly dynamic UC&C applications.
Ever since private branch exchange (PBX (News - Alert)) systems moved from dedicated
wiring to reside on the enerprise Internet Protocol (IP) network, there
has been an uneasy truce between unified communications and
collaboration (UC&C) platforms and their host networks.
Bandwidth-intensive IP telephony, video, and web collaboration
applications have the ability to decimate improperly architected
networks. As a result, network administrators must continually make
accommodations in their network policies to ensure that the appropriate
resources are given to UC&C platforms without impacting the other
mission-critical business applications. The stress on the network has
only been exacerbated with the emergence and adoption of real-time video
and web collaboration as part of a broader multimedia UC&C stack. At the
same time, virtualization on data center servers and user desktops is
accelerating the rate of change and is making once-static
infrastructures extremely dynamic and distributed. A software-defined
network (SDN) offers a fundamental change to how enterprise networks
operate, and in turn, may turn the uneasy truce between networking and
UC&C into a lasting peace.
