We are thrilled to announce SDN DemoFriday™ a weekly webinar series at SDxCentral, featuring live SDN Demo’s, to further software-defined networking education for Enterprise Architects, Network Engineers, Network Operators, Systems Engineers, and Resellers and enable customer adoption of SDN technologies. One of the most requested items from the SDxCentral community is practical, hands-on experience with production-grade SDN technologies.
DemoFriday is the first weekly SDN webinar series where we combine a live-demo of a commercially available SDN technology, product, service or open-source project combined with a short slide presentation detailing potential use cases. Our goal is to produce and archive the most complete set of high quality, educational SDN demos to help network architects and operators identify and evaluate SDN solutions best suited for their needs.
To deliver the best possible demo’s, SDxCentral typically partners with one or two SDN vendors or research organizations to create identify a compelling use case and SDN solution to create customized demos for targeted audiences looking to solve specific problems in the datacenter, WAN, or security.
Next Generation of SDN Demo’s is now.
Unlike traditional sales calls or vendor-produced webinars, DemoFriday is drive by the SDxCentral community. SDxCentral curates and selects only the best available demos that match the interest of the community. Criteria to be included in a DemoFriday include:
- Demand from the SDNCental community to demo a specific use case and or technology
- Technology, Product, Service, or Project must be commercially available or available in the next 30 days
- Focused demo on what product does today (No Futures)
Pulling from the leading projects and vendors in the SDxCentral community, we jointly develop the best possible demo’s for the most compelling use cases as shared to us by the SDxCentral community. To ensure demo integrity and independence, SDNCental collaborates with our partner to develop the content and demo.
DemoFriday’s are free to attend (registration required). SDxCentral is compensated by sponsors for demos.
