The promise of SDN for Unified Communications

Networks are undergoing a radical change, the biggest change for some time. In the past, to reconfigure a network usually involved multiple site visits to provide additional capacity, new routes and even support for new protocols and applications.

With Software Defined Networking (SDN), we now anticipate that site visits will be greatly reduced. Network operators can use tools to automate and orchestrate changes to their infrastructure, providing agility to their enterprise customers.

SDN spins up UC users fast

This agility, will enable businesses to change their structure and organisation more readily. As employees are recruited, services can be switched on faster than before. With Unified Communications, (UC) users have access to not just voice, but video, conferencing tools and document sharing.
Some organisations may run profiles for different roles, including deskbound admin staff, mobile users and power users.
SDN enables operators to provide the support for the applications used within each of these roles, when it is needed.

Delivering quality

With increased deployments of UC, demand for bandwidth will become more unpredictable, ad hoc conferences, the use of video all put demands on the network. SDN will enable operators for deliver Quality of Service (QoS) support for all these current and future business communications
