Initiative is learning programme for clients’ seamless transitions to new network architecture paradigm.

Dimension Data has launched its software defined networking (SDN)  model, a consultancy learning programme to better enable clients to transition into this emergent networking paradigm views as potentially complex and disruptive.

A press statement by ICT services and solutions provider said the core of this programme is a consulting-led and facilitated workshop.

Structured and Coherent

The goal of this workshop is to help enable clients to transition into this paradigm in a structured and coherent manner.

Thus, the intent will be to bring about better understanding of SDN and its impact on ICT infrastructure and operations as well as on the organization and business model.

SDN is a new networking approach where the network becomes programmemable. Network services and functionalities also become available in software. As such, SDN makes networks more flexible in supporting business objectives.

Following analyses of workshop outputs, clients will be given recommendations on how their organisations can start their SDN programmemes and the kinds of specific actions they can undertake.

Dimension Data is an affiliate of the Tokyo-based Nippon and Telegraph Corp., the latter acquiring it in 1998.
