Is this a better approach to enabling SDNs, or just another effort to ward off dramatic change in the comms status quo?

Well, who's boat would get rocked the most if there are any changes to the status quo? The biggest silicon provider in this field! I cannot imagine that SDN which promises to make the hardware simpler and a commodity and instead push all the value into software is welcome by the incumbent silicon vendors.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
