Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, making it ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today's applications. This architecture decouples the network control and forwarding functions enabling the network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services.
Many organizations are working to develop industry standards for SDN including the Open Networking Foundation which is a user-driven organization dedicated to the promotion and adoption of SDN standards like OpenFlow®.
Mentioned below are some of the strategic benefits of SDN architecture in Wireless Networks
HSC’s expertise in the SDN space:
HSC has a dedicated team of Wireless and Infrastructure team who dedicatedly work for advancing the SDN technology. Our Wireless team has been working on Transition from fixed backhaul links to high-capacity inter-node mesh networks by working on mmWave based software defined network (backhaul) . Some more highlights about this solution are as follows:
SDN helps in dynamic provisioning of network elements and services to inside a data centre instead of the current manual provisioning of network and security resources. It also helps in better network management and thus reduced operational costs.
HSC is currently working on several projects with various customers to help them incorporate programmability and agility into their network, and therefore enabling them to keep pace with modern business demands. Over the past few years, HSC has worked with wireless OEMs to develop SDN applications on Centralized Network Controller which controls the topology / scheduling / routing decisions in a backhaul network.If you have a specific query with regards to the application of SDN in Wireless Networks, please use the form the form below to send in your queries.
