Network Programmability and Software Defined Networking
Network Programmability functions -- together with the relevant SDN architecture -- to enable fast and flexible service delivery with end-to-end control for both network and data center. SDN allows transparent traffic flow management across the entire network without specific knowledge on switching and routing protocols. Resources usage is always under control, and infrastructure management become easy and cost-effective. Network Programmability enables SPs to gather information from network devices and apply new configurations according to network status and/or application requests.
