2.Investigate the possible applications and effects within companies (enterprise networks) and service providers (service provider networks) that can be developed with the help of SDN. Which costs can be reduced? And which new services can telecom and cable service companies develop with SDN-technologies and network (function) virtualization (NFV)?

3.Analyse the impact of the fundamental changes in technology on company processes. What is the impact of the technical change and possibilities for the organization and division of tasks? Does SDN for example lead to DevOps? What is the impact of SDN and network automatization on the work of network providers?
