SDN: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

  • Session 1: Defining SDN
  • Jim Frey, VP of Research, Enterprise Management Associates
  • Cengiz Alaettinoglu, CTO, Packet Design

This nine-minute educational video is the first of a multi-part series titled "SDN:  The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly."  The first installment is an interactive discussion that defines a software defined network (SDN)--  breaking out  the application, control, and delivery functional layers.   Also included are the roles of programmability, network virtualization, security, and performance management. The instructional session features industry experts Jim Frey, VP of Research, Enterprise Management Associates; and Cengiz Alaettinoglu, CTO of Packet Design. 


The PacketDesign videos are pretty good. I watched six so far. They were all made on the same day, or perhaps these guys have closets full of identical shirts. This is a changing field. It would be useful if PacketDesign would date stamp their productions in the title page. They all carry a copyright notice which at least contains the year. Better than nothing.


Hi Jim. Thanks for your comment. Yeah... funny that Jim and Cengiz chose the same clothes for each shoot! You're right though, knowing the exact timing for comments in a rapidly changing arena is indeed critical, so thanks for pointing this out. All seven video segments were recorded on August 20th of this year. Glad they are providing some value.
