Italtel and Cisco partner on enterprise SDN

Italtel's Dynamic Admission Control uses Cisco’s Enterprise SDN Controller.

By Alexander Sword

Italtel and Cisco are increasing their cooperation in software-defined networking solutions for the enterprise.

As part of the cooperation, Cisco launched its Enterprise SDN Controller, aimed to facilitate the evolution of IP networks in businesses.

In addition, Italtel began development of an application for APIC-EM to provide the best Quality of Experience for IP video and voice services.

Titled Dynamic Admission Control, it provides dynamic bandwidth management to activate Quality of Service policies shaped according to services that should be preserved. One of the main use-cases for the solution will be network congestion.

"The adoption of Video UC&C applications is now crucial for the business development of enterprises which are widely spread on geographies," said Camillo Ascione, Head of System Integration Strategy & Marketing at Italtel.

"Being able to apply suitable policies to shape network resources’ consumption, not only according to their availability but also to users’ needs, is today a pressing requirement for enterprises. An SDN approach provides IT managers a feasible way to manage dynamically high QoE services, particularly in a multivendor environment, via a controller based infrastructure."

Phil Casini, Director Product Management APIC-EM at Cisco, added: "The selection of appropriate partners to take advantage of the opportunities created by SDN and network programmability is among Cisco‘s main priorities.
