This webinar will look at the types of solutions that operators need to build carrier-grade software defined networks at both a silicon and a software level. LSI will discuss the implications of carrier SDN on silicon design for access and core networks and how there is no one-size-fits-all hardware strategy for SDN. On the software side, Aricent will look at the different types of applications that can be layered onto the SDN stack, the challenges of building and deploying SDN applications, and the benefits of this approach.
Presenters will discuss how SDN applications help simplify the operations and management of complex carrier-grade networks, reduce time-to-market for new services, and above all, ensure better end-user experiences.
