Roc Technologies has hosted a roundtable discussion with senior IT leaders from multinational businesses to share its expertise in Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV).

Roc’s experts – who have invented several new technologies between them – are amongst the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) board members pioneering the developing standards of the exciting new SDN industry.

Offering their unique perspective at the forum has helped to demystify the technologies’ complex emerging standards and vendor approaches for the senior IT leaders. As a result, many attendees have expressed an interest in moving to SDN-based networks; relishing the opportunity to be a part of influencing the direction of the new technologies.

Managing Director at Roc, Matt Franklin says, “It was great to see senior representation from both Enterprises and Service Providers at the event with many of our attendees agreeing that the benefits offered by these emerging technologies - rapid service provisioning, network flexibility and numerous others - are very attractive.

Roc Director Mike Hockey adds, “Although industry experts are predicting that SDN and NFV will be disruptive, we at Roc believe IT leaders will benefit greatly by staying informed of the opportunities the technologies present. The success of our Event in bringing this viewpoint across has been borne out by the fact that many attendees were vociferous about moving towards SDN-based networks.
