Summary:Today's IT is driving tremendous demand for faster and more efficient networks. ZDNet editor in chief Larry Dignan and TechRepublic editor in chief Jason Hiner discuss the leading technologies driving the next generation of networking.


The the rising tides of big data, video, BYOD, and cloud computing are driving tremendous demand for faster and more efficient networks.

As a result, ZDNet and TechRepublic have again collaborated to produce a set of resources to help business technology professionals meet the challenge. We delve into how technologies like software defined networks (SDN), 10 gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, and others that are enabling business transformation and powering the next stage of the information age.

In this episode of "The Editors" with Larry Dignan, ZDNet Editor in Chief, and Jason Hiner, TechRepublic Editor in Chief, we take a 20,000-foot view of the topic and look at the leading technologies and vendors to watch. We especially talk about Software Defined Networking (SDN), how it's changing the networking industry, its ROI for IT leaders, and an example or two about the benefits that it's bringing to early adopters.
