Published 28th September, 2012 by San Ramji, Apigee

The software that defines the network resides anywhere it needs to, and it uses APIs to read the state of the network and to change the network’s behavior in tandem with changes in application workloads. These APIs are presented by SDN controllers, network management software, and network analytics engines. Apigee provides embedded components and management services that make it easy to program the network through APIs.
