PISCATAWAY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IEEE, the world's largest professional organization advancing technology for humanity, today announced the IEEE Software Defined Networks (SDN) Initiative has launched its inaugural eNewsletter: The IEEE Softwarization Newsletter.
The eNewsletter is a bi-monthly, technically focused online publication that highlights current SDN-related technology developments, innovations, and trends from the world’s top subject matter experts, researchers and practitioners. IEEE SDN invites authors to contribute to the newsletter. For author guidelines and to submit an article, please email the Managing Editor.
The eNewsletter’s first issue was released November 2, 2015 and is available on the IEEE SDN web portal. Subscription to the eNewsletter is provided as a benefit of membership to the IEEE SDN Technical Community at no charge.

“After one year of focused support and cross-fertilization efforts with many IEEE Societies, a growing, global IEEE SDN technical community is emerging with shared interests in the opportunity and potential of SDN,” said IEEE member Eileen Healy, editor-in-chief of the eNewsletter and CEO, Healy & Co.
“Our goal for this eNewsletter is to provide insightful articles for the casual observer, as well as the academics and other professionals leading the charge. This new environment is impacting core and edge networks alike and is forever changing the way that public communications are enabled and enhanced. Our intent is to put these changes into the broader context of society including aspects of regulation, policy, social impacts and new business models,” she continued.
The November issue of the IEEE SDN eNewsletter covers exclusive content, covering topics such as paving the way toward software-defined infrastructures and the central office re-architected as a datacenter. “The current trend towards Softwarization of Telecommunications is one of the major disruptions that will shape the future of Network Operators and Service Providers. In fact, softwarization is a systemic transformation appearing today under different facets and extending up the terminals: expressions of this trend are SDN, NFV (Network Function Virtualization) and the diverse evolution of Cloud-, Edge- and Fog-Computing,” said Antonio Manzalini, chair of IEEE SDN.
