For anyone attending the AFCEA show, be sure to stop by to see the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) where they will be doing an SDN Use Case Proof of Concept (POC) demonstration.
Some of the key points and functionality highlighted in the SDN Use Case Proof of Concept Presentations video below are:
- Automated provisioning
- Improved end-to-end management and services delivery
- Dynamic bandwidth reallocation and scheduling
- Less time connected in the “box”/VM
- Reduction in requirement for direct equipment access by personnel and management systems
- Control plane separation from data plane

The demonstration pod featured at the AFCEA show (a subset demonstration of the full video shown above) highlights how a data center network, integrated with VMware, can increase agility, decrease costs and improve security. Through workflow integration, the data center network is configured through the simple process of creating virtual machines (VMs) in vSphere. Seamless mobility is supported across the entire fabric, enabling a VM to migrate to any server in any data center location. In addition, the fabric topology can be, in real time, recalculated to provide dynamic capacity in support of high bandwidth workloads and vMotion traffic. A single pane-of-glass console delivers centralized management, visualization of the physical and logical network fabric topology and the physical and virtual location of all virtual machines.
The future of networking is available today. See how easy it will be to manage your data center!
