What are people saying about software defined networking (SDN)? Well, it's a technology that certainly threatens the status quo and anytime you do that, the marketing departments of major router and switch manufacturers will likely step up and confuse the heck out of us.

Is software defined networking the same as network virtualization? Is it the same as OpenFlow? Does it have the same security requirements as a traditional network? Is it going to make network hardware less important and more of a commodity?

We asked the following SDN execs to give us their perspective on what they think are the biggest SDN myths.

First we hear from Ankur Singla, CEO of Contrail Systems . Next, we get an opinion from Embrane Inc. CEO Dante Malagrinò and vArmour Networks Inc. CEO Michael Shieh. Then we hear from Saar Gillai, the CTO of HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ) Networking and we end the podcast with a comment from Extreme Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) CMO Dave Ginsburg. Once you hear from them, let us hear from you on the boards below.

There seems to be music playing in this audio clip and I can barely hear what the speaker is saying.  Why is there music?

Yes, I played a little intro music and talked over part of it. 


But the core content is crisp, clean and easy to hear.

re: SDN's Biggest Myths


So in summary, if you ask 5 different executives about SDN you basically get 5 different answers. Once you take away all the myths, what is left?


Does SDN have Buddha nature?


Why do SDN executives all have such exotic names?


These questions require further meditation.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
