Ready to make your mark as a networking innovator and leader? Interested in learning how today’s open source and open standards initiatives are coming together? Want to know how networking is revolutionizing hot markets such as micro-services and Internet of Things (IoT)? Feeling the need to reach out to executives, technologists, vendors, and investors? If so, you need to attend the Linux Foundation’s Open Networking Summit.
The Open Networking Summit—taking place April 3–6, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California—is the only conference envisioned and architected by networking specialists for the networking ecosystem. Newly redesigned, the Open Networking Summit is the largest and most inclusive open networking and orchestration event in the world.
The conference’s 2017 theme focuses on harmonizing Linux Foundation projects, non–Linux Foundation initiatives, and standards across networking and orchestration. You will hear from industry visionaries and leaders on the future of networking beyond Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), and you will learn from your peers how open source networking is the “new norm” and mandated by most enterprise CIOs, carrier CTOs, and cloud executives.
Featured speakers will include Amin Vahdat (Google), John Donovan (AT&T), Sandra Rivera (Intel), Albert Greenberg (Microsoft Azure), and Justin Dustzadeh (Visa). Keynotes at this year’s conference will be more focused on industry visionaries versus programs/projects.
This year, attendees will gain the advantage of reconfigured conference tracks, including separate technical/DevOps and business/architecture tracks across enterprise, carrier, and web/cloud customers. Content will cover how networking enables adjacent markets in IOT, business intelligence (BI), artificial intelligence (AI), and the cloud. New tracks for 2017 include Enterprise DevOps/Technical Track, Enterprise Business/Architecture Track, General Interest Track, Carriers DevOps/Technical Track, Carriers Business/Architecture Track, and Project Roadmap Tracks.
Attendees will be experience a new Thought Leadership Think Tank, take part in industry awards, and experience the conference’s new Developer Hackathon & Developer Lounge. Attendees can anticipate an exhibit hall with an expanded focus on enterprise, carrier, and web/cloud vendor innovation—side by side.
