SAN JOSE, Calif., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ADARA Networks®, a global software company in the software defined networking space, will exhibit and demonstrate a selection of the advanced capabilities of its Software Defined Networking (SDN) product offerings at Open Networking Summit 2013 in Santa Clara on April 15-17. The Open Networking Summit is the only nonprofit conference dedicated to accelerating the future of SDN technologies. "ADARA is excited to be exhibiting at such an important and sold out conference as the Open Networking Summit," said Eric Johnson, Chairman and CEO of ADARA Networks. "ADARA's demonstrations are a small fraction of the ADARA SDN platform. The exhibit only hints at what ADARA has developed and what ADARA is introducing to the market. SDN is much more than the limited, piecemeal view that has been marketed; it is more than a single use case, more than a marketing strategy to salvage falling legacy infrastructure sales." "SDN is about visibility into services, about applications and services interfacing with network infrastructure. It is surprising that there are SDN products that are incapable of looking into the primary applications and services Layers, 4 –7, much less manage all Layers, 1-7, since these SDN offerings work only at Layers 2, 3 with limited utility at Layer 4. It both poses the question of how valuable are these SDN offerings, while it partially answers the question of why has SDN adoption been slower than expected. The important question is not which companies are pursuing SDN it is which companies' SDN platforms bring real value to the market. The bottom line is that the market decides. ADARA SDN is not concept, it is concrete, it is not limited, it is comprehensive, it is production quality and empowers customers to eliminate the barriers to SDN adoption and deployment. The simple message is that ADARA SDN is uniquely able to transform computing, networking and mobility in ways never before imagined," said Johnson.
