Today's campus networks are facing major challenges. Mobile clients, BYOD, video, and the growing number of connected devices and applications are rapidly changing the network landscape, no matter whether the campus is corporate or educational.

These dramatic changes impact on the ability of current solutions to deliver agility, performance, and seamless user experience. One of the primary reasons for these challenges is that network technology evolution is simply not keeping pace with evolving demands. Tom will review how SDN can alleviate these challenges, offering flexibility and the ability to develop new capabilities quickly and cost-effectively.
