Intelligent provisioning of SDN network services cries out for an analytics-based MANO layer.
Cengiz Alaettinoglu is a founding member of Packet Design’s R&D staff and provides technical direction for the product portfolio. His early experimental work, analyzing routing convergence and scalability properties, and correlating network performance issues to routing protocol incidents, lead to the creation of route analytics technology and the Packet Design product suite. He is currently working on real-time SDN analytics and orchestration applications that intelligently satisfy path and bandwidth demands without negatively impacting other services. Prior to Packet Design, Cengiz was with USC’s Information Sciences Institute where he worked on the Routing Arbiter project. He was co-chair of the IETF’s Routing Policy System Working Group, has been published widely, and is a popular lecturer at industry events worldwide. He holds a BS in Computer Engineering from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, and a MS and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Maryland.
