|Abstract:||:||SDN technology will undoubtedly shape the telecoms networks of the
future - this talk will outline some much-needed quick wins along
this long journey. We will show how SDN can reinvent home networking
by providing a platform for value-add service creation; we will then
demonstrate how SDN can provide better visibility and management of
streaming video traffic in carrier and enterprise networks; and
finally we will show how SDN can redefine the value of inter-domain
interconnects. We will conclude with a short discussion on the
potential for security to be the compelling use-case for SDN adoption.
