The Role of Startups in the SDN Revolution

Software-defined Networking (SDN) represents the third epoch in modern networking. Like every great revolution in the annals of the tech industry, the seeds of revolution are being rooted outside the walled gardens of the incumbents. This article, published in NetworkWorld by Lightspeed venture partner Arif Janmohamed, does an excellent job of illustrating this point and is worth a read.

Full disclosure: Lightspeed Venture Partners is an investor in Pertino and is helping to shape the SDN market through their investments in other leading players like Nicira, Plexxi, and Embrane.

Pertino is my 5th start-up since "doing time" at AT&T and Siemens. I thrive on building new market opportunities and speak networking, security, cloud, XaaS, mobile, Big Data, carriers, and чуть-чу́ть Russian.
