Conference sessions at the SDN Workshop address the definition of and use cases of Software-Defined Networking; how enterprises can leverage SDN to their advantage; the use cases for SDN in service provider and data center applications; and how SDN can be part of an entirely new approach to networking; how SDN can relates to installed networks.
        •  Software-Defined Networking 101
        •  SDN in the Enterprise
        •  The Role of SDN in Network Evolution
        •  SDN Roundup
