Software Defined Networking For Real – An Example from RIPE69

I tried to think about what would be an ideal start into Software Defined Networking Blog. While going through this wonderful journey to the center of Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualisation, I believe that the journey should start on showing how real is  SDN!!. I mean how real does it impact the industry and organisations. How real does it solve a tangible problem here.

Google and Facebook use case shows a great evidence of how SDN can transform the way we think about networks. I am planning to post about their transformation soon. However, I wanted to start with Eolo (ISP and Telecom operator in Italy) use case from RIPE 69 in 2014. How they transformed their core networks through custom-silicon routers with Open-Source architecture.
