Developer to the Core

Building Great Applications for Your Network

You hear the word network and application together more and more frequently today. Why? Because you actually can build applications more easily than ever using tools that are developer and network friendly and utilize tools you already know how to use (ie: Eclipse IDE).

Historically there's been a divide. But the network and applications need to work together.


Predictable, reliable end-to-end network behavior over a wide range of operating conditions and constraints is the new ingredient brand, much as "Intel Inside" defined the corresponding PC attributes through the explosion of desktop computing.  You need the network exposed such that it can be smarter about your code, and your code can optimize its use of network resources.


That's our goal of making the New Network programmable - it makes applications aware of the network and the network aware of its set of applications.  And along the way, it may make IT and development better friends.
