SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

for example to transmit some 'x' 2 gb files from unix server to mainframe sys,
can the transfer of files be made faster by increasing the window size
or the send buffer size of the current TCP/IP configuration
and base link is T1-fiber link.
already n/w bandwidth utilization on our link is around 70%.
Am just thinking of ways to effectively transmit the files...
If my memory serves me right, you'll need to have a look not only to the TCP/IP packet size, but also
to the size of the physical packets ("frames") on your T1.
This is not the same as your bandwidth (1544 kbps).
Your frame size depends only on your physical network protocol (Ethernet, Token Ring, etc).
When you have bigger frames, you can send out bigger TCP/IP packets. If you don't, your bigger packets will
simply get "cut up" in pieces just before physical transmission.
