Over the last decade, the hottest topics in networking have been software defined networking (SDN). However, there is considerable confusion amongst enterprise IT organizations about SDN. There are many sources of that confusion, including the sheer number of vendors who have solutions that solve different problems using different solution architectures and technologies, all of whom claim to be offering SDN solutions.
