Writing Your Paper

In your white paper, use additional sources of information but also describe the concept in layman’s terms. Use visuals where appropriate. Describe how an SDN/IBN architecture would look different than network architectures we have traditionally deployed. Compare and contrast the network architectures and discuss the pros and cons of each.

The paper should include the following sections:

· introduction to software-defined networking (SDN) 

· introduction to intent-based networking (IBN) 

· discussion on how virtualizing the desktop and now back-end infrastructure are complementary and related

· discussion of how SDN and IBN are related
