cmit495 sdn and ibn whitepaper

Software-defined networking (SDN) and intent-based networking (IBN) offer an ability to revolutionize the modern network architecture. Both of these concepts are relatively new, and your chief technology officer (CTO) has only heard them in passing. In fact, she pawned them off as the new “marketing fad” dressed up as a new concept. Since you have researched both technologies, you understand this is not a fad. When used in combination with virtualization and cloud computing, you know SDN and IBN could revolutionize how the organization operates, providing for reduced costs, efficiency, better management of the network assets, and security.

However, you need to develop a white paper for the Caduceus CTO to highlight these benefits. Given the CTO has only heard the term in passing, you must describe in this white paper, the SDN and IBN concepts, their benefits, and what it would take for the organization to implement.

The paper should include the following sections:

  • introduction to software-defined networking (SDN) (discussed in Week 3)
  • introduction to intent-based networking (IBN) (discussed in Week 4)
  • discussion on how virtualizing the desktop and now back-end infrastructure are complementary and related
  • discussion of how SDN and IBN are related
