NYT: Cisco Memo Outlines SDN Plans

The New York Times published details from a Cisco internal memo address that discusses the company's strategy with regards to software defined networking. According to the "all hands" memorandum, Cisco believes it is well positioned because of its customer accounts, its operating system, its ASICs and its engineering expertise. The company has SDN development work underway on a number of fronts and has funded an internal start-up called Insieme that will also address network programmability.
