Software Defined Networking
Create an intelligent, programmable, centrally-controlled network to master diverse applications and workloads.
Complete Network Modernization
Keep up with demands from cloud, security, mobility and big data with Hewlett Packard Enterprise software defined networking (SDN) solutions. Give BYOD users access while securing your network at the edge—cost-effectively. Prioritize workers using collaboration tools, like Microsoft Skype for Business, to optimize traffic and enhance user experience. Give network administrators the edge with the ability to pinpoint, diagnose, verify and solve network issues in real-time, from data center to branch office.
Build an Open, Application-first Network
Start with ready-to-go SDN applications for your biggest network challenges. Transform your network security with SDN by having zero-threat protection at the edge. Optimize your network with SDN technology that adjusts dynamically to meet real time traffic needs. Orchestrate and visualize your entire network for better control and monitoring.
It’s all part of our SDN Open Ecosystem, enabling you to develop open, enterprise-ready networking applications using all the tools and support you need, including our industry-first SDN App Store. The SDN Software Developer Kit lets you create apps for any standards-based, SDN-enabled device by quickly setting up a developer environment and creating applications on the HPE VAN SDN Controller. Gain access to the developer community in our SDN forum where you can participate in developer events and examine SDN use cases, all while backed by our support and expertise.
Benefiting from HPE SDN doesn't require an entire rip and replace of your network. With HPE SDN-enabled infrastructure that works in hybrid mode, you can benefit from SDN wherever and whenever you want in the network.
HPE SDN App Store Opens Doors
Select from a range of ready-to-go SDN applications from the industry’s first SDN marketplace. But, it’s more than just a store. Join the platform discussions to learn and share your own apps with our active SDN community. Deploy directly to the enterprise-ready HPE VAN SDN Controller, the control point for your SDN-enabled network that simplifies management, provisioning and orchestration.
