Catalysed by OpenFlow, the once-radical notion of SDN has rapidly gained market momentum and – in combination with NFV – is now the mainstream networking evolution path for the telecom and data industry, embraced by large and small service providers, data centre hosts, operators and their suppliers alike.

In the rapidly expanding economies of the Asia-Pacific region, SDN and NFV – and all they entail – are well placed to drive innovation and competitiveness in new development cycles, enabling new business models, applications and customer services.
