Today's networks are facing the increasing pressures of mobility and BYOD, social media usage, and Big Data analytics. More bandwidth is required to support these trends, and IT is being challenged to reduce latency and deliver acceptable performance for cloud-based applications and services.

One response to the escalating demand for faster, more efficient networks has been the emergence of software-defined networking (SDN). It's still early days for SDN, with adoption being confined largely to industry giants such as Google. But as SDN matures, it could play a critical role in helping organizations define, provision, and manage their networks.

ZDNet and TechRepublic created an ebook that will help familiarize you with SDN: what it is, what benefits it offers, how it is currently being implemented, and where it's headed.
