Cisco led mindshare in Software Defined Network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) market discussion last week. While the company historically competes with VMware in the SDN space, CRN reported that partners working with both vendors “are now deploying Cisco and VMware’s SDN side-by-side and finding them more complementary than competitive.” This eliminates the “either-or decision between Cisco and VMware,” and creates opportunities to solve even more complex challenges. This announcement made a big impact on market discussion, accounting for nearly 25 percent of SDN and NFV Twitter conversation last Thursday.
