Publisher's Summary

The legacy networks that are typically in use by organizations today have an infrastructure that is typically a mix of multiple vendor solutions, platforms, and protocol solutions. This makes the ultimate goal of creating an integrated network ecosystem a difficult if not impossible process for many organizations.
The arrival of Software Defined Networking (SDN) is an approach to building networks using open protocols, such as OpenFlow, that allow globally aware software control to be applied at the edges of the network in order to access network switches and routers that typically would use closed and proprietary firmware.
What you'll find inside:

The importance of SDN
How telecom service providers view SDN
The developer and the network
Examples of networked applications that can only be offered in an SDN network
Google and SDN
SDN is not a revolutionary new technology. Instead, it is better to think of this as being a new way of organizing computer network functionality. SDN allows the network to be virtualized. That's where the real power of SDN comes from, and that's what we'll be exploring in this book.

Interesting subject but very poorly narrated

This is a very interesting subject but the book is ruined by the very poor narration. The narrator frequently makes a mistake mid sentence and either carries on leaving you wondering what was meant to be said, or even worse gets half way through a sentence, makes a mistake and then starts the sentence all over again.

Very difficult to listen to when this keeps happening, also you can hear the typing of keys and mouse clicks in the back ground of the very echoey recording.

Good subject, poor quality audio book.
