Software Defined Metro Networks – Transformation for scale, service delivery and programmability

In this presentation we will discuss SDN techniques that are being applied to metro networks today and how these SDN methodologies are transforming how metro and WAN networks are designed, and operated. Further we will discuss how network heuristics and analytics can be provided to applications, giving them network-awareness and therefore allowing them to make programmatic changes to the network to suit their needs, e.g. dynamic bandwidth allocation. We will further discuss pragmatic use-cases for SDN in the Metro and integration of the WAN and the datacenters.
