SDN Benefits

Entities currently deal with Wi-Fi connectivity supporting cloud applications, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and telehealth programs all running on the same wireless network. All this traffic potentially leads to slow connections due to overloaded bandwidth and bottlenecking, resulting in clinicians being unable to access mission-critical tools at the point of care.

Networks are expanding and supporting more devices and as they expand the harder they are to manage. Large healthcare organizations are faced with countless switches and routers that need to be maintained individually and are not dynamic enough to fluctuate network traffic based on an organization's needs.

Software-defined networking (SDN) can help prevent these problems.

Software-defined networking strips away the complexities of wireless hardware by consolidating management functions into a management server that dictates how data moves through the network. This allows IT administrators to retain more control over their networks and respond to demands on their networks more quickly. 

SDN uses virtualization to remove the intelligent management software from network hardware. By doing so, SDN creates a centralized, more intelligent, and easier managed network architecture.  

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) describes SDN as the “physical separation of the network control plane from the forwarding plane, and where a control plane controls several devices.”  

SDN allows network administrators to manage the network through abstraction which gives apps and programs a simplified platform to operate on.
