Service Defined Network provides resilient connectivity, performance, scalability, with easy service provisioning.
What is a Service Defined Network?
The Service Defined Network provides a secure connection automatically from a user, or object, to an authorized application. Intelligent Fabric (iFab) technology automates the deployment of the network and simplifies moves, adds, and changes, reducing the time and effort it takes to maintain and operate a network.

Real network automation
IT infrastructure has evolved over the last 20 years to where it is now fully automated. While it takes only minutes to deploy a new application, service provisioning in the network can still take days or even weeks to manually configure, element by element. With Service Defined Networks this is now changing, enabling IT leaders to shift their focus to the business rather than building and running infrastructure as was previously required.
A single Network Management System (NMS) provides an additional level of integration between wired and wireless networks. This means IT managers no longer have to handle two management systems with two sets of policies and configuration rules (one for the LAN, and another for the WLAN). ALE NMS provides unified service management and network-wide visibility, to improve IT efficiency and business agility.
Service Defined Networks in healthcare: The Service Defined Network provides a secure connection from a user or object to authorized applications. It simplifies and secures how staff, patients, visitors, devices and objects, connect to a hospital, clinic, or assisted living facility network, while delivering a performance level that is appropriate for individuals, groups, or assets.
Service Defined Networks in hospitality: With a Service Defined Network unified access and unified management ensure seamless interoperability between users, devices and services across the hotel network. Access to applications is restricted to authorized individuals based on their roles. This means they have different network access levels, security and QoS. Network resource usage is monitored to proactively address any potential problems.
Service Defined Networks in education: A Service Defined Network simplifies connectivity for a wide variety of educational user needs, while ensuring that individuals only have access to authorized applications and systems. A Service Defined Network can be up and running in just a few minutes freeing up time for highly skilled IT professionals to work on new strategic initiatives.
Service Defined Networks in transportation: Transportation data networks must be highly resilient, and support many different types of applications, objects and users, with high levels of security. With a Service Defined Network, the network is simplified, tasks are automated, and IT teams can deliver a better level of service and improve SLA’s, to provide an enhanced traveler experience.
Service Defined Networks in government: Secure, responsive public services, improved emergency response systems, and wireless connectivity are important in improving citizen’s experiences. Service Defined Networks provide the architecture to automate the provisioning of networks and IoT devices, improve the cost of operations, reduce human error and deliver the services and applications that governments require and that citizens expect.
