Video: ONF & iSDX Webinar – Solving Internet Routing Problems with Software-Defined Internet Exchange Points
Due to BGP limitations network operators rely on arcane mechanisms to perform traffic engineering, prevent attacks, and realize peering agreements. This ONF & iSDX Webinar highlights the software-defined Internet exchange point (iSDX) project and explain why it offers new hope for solving such long-standing problems in inter-domain routing.
iSDX is going a step further than simply replacing IXP switches with their OpenFlow counterparts. It provides control over packet-processing rules that match on multiple header fields and perform a variety of actions, enabling new applications such as application-specific peering – for example, where two networks peer only for streaming video traffic.
The iSDX project now at the stage where it can be shared with the broader open source community, the team has begun offering direct access to the code through the Open Networking Foundation (ONF)’s opensourcesdn.org.
We invite you to join us and two of the researchers from the iSDX project, Nick Feamster, professor of computer science, and Arpit Gupta, leading researcher on iSDX on an exclusive webinar. ONF Technical Program Manager Rick Bauer will also present portions of the webinar, which will look at:
- why the industry needs iSDX
- how iSDX compares to other initiatives in the software-defined networking (SDN) ecosystem today
- a short demo of iSDX
- iSDX in practice – a customer viewpoint
