In this lessons, we will talk about SDN versus Traditional Networks. We will give the drawbacks of traditional networks and give the benefits coming with SDN.
Till recent years many companies were using Traditional Network Architectures. They are still widely used in the World. But Traditional networks generally has some drawbacks. These drawbacks make them difficult to manage and maintain day by day. To overcome these limitations, SDN (Software-Difined Networking) has developed and at the future, most of the network types will be SDN based.
What are the limitations of Traditional Network Architectures?
Most of the network types of today, is still Traditional Networks. These networks has some limitations and day by day, with the growth of data communication, these limitations are increasing very fast. Let’s check SDN versus Traditional Networks:
Data Communication is Growing
First of all, data communication is growing day by day and this growth brings more devices. Whenever a new network device is added to the network, rewiring is required.All of these devices are managed by human. And with growth of the networks, the deviced that need to manage is increasing. It is difficult to manage the these huge network infrastructures anymore.
