The transition from “old school” voice-only PBX installations to robust Unified Communications systems is a revolution that is taxing the limits of traditional network architecture to address the dynamic computing and storage needs of Enterprise IT and end users.

Your Microsoft Lync applications require a strong, high performance network to support real time voice, video and content workloads. Software Defined Networking (SDN) is the technology that will deliver that performance:

  • SDN has the potential to radically change the way companies provision and manage their enterprise networks.
  • SDN has the potential to disrupt proprietary networking vendors if they do not embrace the market opportunities offered by SDN.
  • There are already companies and organizations that are realizing the benefits of SDN in their production environments.

SDN is a revolutionary approach to networking based on open standards, separation of the control and data plane — and both HP and Microsoft are in the vanguard, as founding members of the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) that has adopted the standard definition of SDN.

Software Defined Networking is not only a data center and service provider technology, but will mark a fundamental network transition from the data center to campus LANs, to branch office networks.
