The 5th edition of the Open Networking Summit event is fast approaching. As industry and thought leaders converge to the ultimate software-defined networking (SDN) forum in Santa Clara, we are also preparing to hear the latest revelations of the SDN world. The enthusiasm keeps growing day after day and is fueled by the promise of great and practical event. Indeed the summit this year will offer many practical sessions where attendees will be able to enjoy great learning experiences and immediately apply their acquired knowledge during hands on activities. Many are particularly excited for the tutorials such as the Open Network Operating System (ONOS) training that will allow participants to build their own applications on top of ONOS to enable a variety of network services. For those who cannot attend this event, you will still have the opportunity to watch the summit (sign up via form below to be notified once the live stream begins).
What’s to come? What is the current state of SDN? These questions and many more will be the subjects at hand at the 2015 ONS. Additionally, several use cases will be put forth to support enterprise customer and service providers who are looking for validation. The summit will also be an opportunity to look back and assess the advancements made in delivering the promise of SDN. Open source platforms and the role of SDN/network functions virtualization (NFV) for service providers and enterprises as expected will lead discussions throughout the event.
This SDN forum will feature panel discussions on SDN for enterprise and will involve partners such as: the NSA, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Samsung and many more. Such panel discussions will open the conversation on the promise of SDN and will cover:
- Key business and operational benefits of adopting SDN in the enterprise
- Factors driving use cases’ prioritization in enterprises
- Early experience on pilots and proof of SDN concepts
- Panel members’ vision on deploying SDN over the next few years
- Topics relating to skills, training, and organization
- Transformation to a DevOps model and its impact on SDN deployments
- Expectations from panel members on open source SDN tools
