SOFTWARE DEFINED VISIBILITY
The visibility paradigm is on a way to dramatic changes. Visibility on the physical Layer is not efficient anymore as the only solution. Network design has changed from device-oriented to software defined. Therefore, network visibility should also follow the principles of programmable networks.
Programmable networks aim to be automatically orchestrated or at least require minimal intervention using Software, and network Visibility has to be able to be as dynamic. Without this ability network visibility changes become unmanageable and for example security and performance monitoring is inefficient.
