SDN provides a more flexible, agile and efficient way of network management and control. Benefits include simplified and automated configuration, improved visibility and control, scalability and support for new applications and services.
Support for new applications and services: SDN provides a flexible platform for the development and deployment of new applications and network services. By separating control from the underlying infrastructure, innovations can be incorporated into the network more easily. This includes the implementation of virtualized network services, cloud service orchestration, network segmentation and other advanced applications.
Simplification and automation: With SDN, network configuration and monitoring can be automated, which helps minimize human error and improve efficiency. Reducing the complexity of network management by making everything simpler.
Visibility and control: SDN provides greater network visibility, enabling more detailed and efficient monitoring and analysis of traffic, leading to faster and more optimal identification and resolution of network problems. In addition, centralized control allows security policies to be enforced more effectively, contributing to improved network and data protection.
These advantages make SDN attractive to organizations looking to optimize their networks and adapt to changing infrastructure and application needs.
