Most people will have heard about Software Defined Networking over the last year. Now is your chance to see and experience the Big Switch Networks products. Big SwitchNetworks launched their their Open SDN product suite on the13th of November and the entire suite is generally available, so it’s time to talk about the reality of SDN.
The Big Network Controller is a commercial OpenFlow controller ready for the Enterprise and Service Provider markets. We will be discussing Big Switch Networks Open SDN Applications – Big Virtual Switch for building virtual networks from an OpenFlow network, and Big Tap for delivering unified network monitoring (think ultimate programmable SPAN port).
In this webinar, the Packet Pushers will be hosting Dan Hersey from Big Switch Networks to talk about the products and how an Open SDN architecture can make SDN work for you. The agenda will be to consider what you can achieve with an OpenFlow enabled network and how SDN can change your network.
- A short introduction to OpenFlow and SDN
- Using SDN to build Virtual Networks in an OpenFlow network.
- How we can address the migration from today’s network to an SDN enabled network whether it be pure OpenFlow Overlay, pure OpenFlow, or a Hybrid of the two..
There will be time for some questions after the main presentation.
