How the Nuage SDN solution works
One of the market-leading SDN solutions is the Nuage SDN (VSP) platform, which is Nokia's SDN solution (formerly Alcatel Lucent), so we will explore how this market-leading SDN solution works.
The Nuage VSP platform comprises three main components—the VSD, VSC, and VRS.
