Verizon

Verizon's top network engineers have publicly described SDN as a "game-changer" technology, and at the Open Networking Summit this past month, the company demo'd various SDN attributes alongside Adara Networks, HP and Intel. Specifically, Verizon used HP BL460 G7 blades with quad-core Intel Xeon processor 5600 series, HP Networking switches, HP CloudSystem Matrix and Adara Full Stack Engine technology to show how a telecom provider such as itself could use OpenFlow technology to reduce the cost of coordinating and moving large amounts of data across networks from one data center to another.
