Verizon uses SDN to upgrade network

Monday 30 April 2018 | 18:32 CET | News
Verizon, along with Cisco and Juniper Networks, is using software-defined networking (SDN) technology to combine all of its existing service edge routers for Ethernet and IP-based services onto a single platform. This is meant to improve the operational efficiency of its networks while also adding increased functionality and flexibility, the company said in a press release. This new multi-service edge platform features a disaggregated control plane and leverages external compute to enhance the capabilities of that control plane beyond that of a traditional router.
