Software-Defined Networking (SDN) brings the application and networking worlds closer together.
While server and storage virtualization have been widely adopted, network virtualization is still in its infancy.
SDN aims at closing this gap and offering application-driven network control, better scalability, and faster adaption to machine & service mobility.

OpenFlow is one of the most prominent SDN protocols to date.
This talk discusses OpenFlow extensions for the optical layer and the expansion beyond campus/data center boundaries.
It assesses applications in the carrier and enterprise space and shows results of recent demonstrations.
