The title of this session may be alphabet soup, but the benefits of software-defined network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are not limited to telecom and cloud service providers. With the emerging trends brought about by digital transformation initiatives including IoT, microgrid as well as IT/OT convergence, critical infrastructure operators are facing new operational challenges that require reimagination of their networks to scale up and attaining service agility as well as network automation. Review the evolution of the SDN networking technology and network virtualization, and examine how it can address the new operational challenges.
