    Data center switch software: Beyond speeds and feeds

    There is so much more to networking software than software-defined networking. In the data center, switch software is playing a bigger part in how enterprise network engineers evaluate, purchase and deploy their networks.

    This shift has occurred as many networking equipment vendors traded their proprietary ASICs for merchant silicon, resulting in a greater emphasis on switch software, APIs and architecture. That doesn't mean hardware is irrelevant, however, or that all vendors have abandoned custom silicon. But, as we explore in this issue of Network Evolution, this transition is paving the way for more open and intelligent switch software for more flexible and agile data center networks.

    It's an approach that holds appeal for network engineers who are trying to adapt their networks to meet the demands of cloud computing and virtualization.

    Also in this issue, we explore why the long-foretold death of the desk phone has yet to come to pass. Experts and enterprise IT pros weigh in on why the traditional handset continues to reign, even in the age of software-based alternatives and BYOD. Additionally, we dive into monitoring the network to optimize the end-user experience. Hear from network engineers and other IT pros who share their tips and techniques for keeping users happy.

    In addition, we highlight the latest winner of SearchNetworking's Network Innovation Award, Saisei's FlowCommand software. Be sure to also check out this edition of The Subnet, in which one network engineer explains why it's important to maintain an open line of communication with your vendors.
