Software-defined networking (SDN) creates agile networks that grow and shrink automatically based on application usage. It’s effective, but it also creates a new complexity for network operations teams who have to effectively manage all networks – old and new – together.
Eighty-one percent of enterprises have either deployed or plan to deploy SDN and NFV technologies in the next 12 months. At the same time, most have admitted their current monitoring tools do not support these architectures.
Without 100 percent network visibility, performance suffers, network managers only have time to be reactive not proactive, and end-user satisfaction suffers. The good news: there is a solution.
