Clean and fresh approach to programmability for virtualised networks 7

In the last few years “Software Defined Networking” (SDN) has come to the fore, with its proposed total decoupling between the decisions made about where traffic is sent (the Control plane) and the underlying system that forwards the traffic to its selected destination (the Data plane). Network service providers have also been exploring different ways to […]
