Get the inside edge from industry experts.
Enterprise network architectures are being reshaped using tenets popularized by the major cloud properties. How will the emergence of cloud, edge cloud, and multicloud shape networks? We explore this evolution and look at the ways that real-time streaming telemetry, machine learning, and artificial intelligence affect how networks are designed and operated.
In this video, you’ll hear from Gavin Cato, SVP, Development Engineering for Networking at Dell EMC, Kireeti Kompella, CTO & SVP, Engineering at Juniper Networks and Russ White, Infrastructure Architect at LinkedIn.
About the Participants:
Russ White began working with computers in the mid-1980’s, and computer networks in 1990. He has experience in designing, deploying, breaking, and troubleshooting large scale networks, and is a strong communicator from the white board to the board room. Across that time, he has co-authored more than forty software patents, participated in the development of several Internet standards, helped develop the CCDE and the CCAr, and worked in Internet governance with the Internet Society. Russ has a background covering a broad spectrum of topics, including radio frequency engineering and graphic design, and is an active student of philosophy and culture. Russ is a co-host at the Network Collective, serves on the Routing Area Directorate at the IETF, co-chairs the BABEL working group, the TSC for the open source FR Routing project, and on the Linux Foundation (Networking) board.
SVP Development Engineering for Networking
Gavin Cato serves as the Senior Vice President of Development Engineering for Networking at Dell EMC. In this role, he is responsible for the worldwide hardware and software engineering teams that research, design, and develop networking solutions for data center, campus, and service provider customers. He has been instrumental in establishing Dell EMC’s Open Networking and OpenSwitch approach in the transformation to disaggregated networking solutions.
Gavin came to Dell in 2013 from Extreme Networks where he was responsible for global Engineering. Gavin has held executive positions at Tekelec, Arsenal Digital Solutions and worked at Arsenal Digital Solutions, Nortel Networks, IBM, Duke University Medical Center, and military contracting companies as well.
CTO & SVP Engineering
Currently SVP and CTO for JDI, Juniper Networks, Dr. Kompella was formerly CTO at Contrail Systems, and before that, CTO and Chief Architect, JunOS at Juniper Networks. He has deep experience in Packet Transport, large-scale MPLS, VPNs, VPLS, and Layer 1 to Layer 3 networking, and has been very active in the IETF, both as a former co-chair of the CCAMP Working Group and as author of several Internet Drafts and RFCs (in the CCAMP, IS-IS, L2VPN, MPLS, NVO3, OSPF, and TE WGs). Prior to Juniper, Kireeti worked on file systems at NetApp, SGI, and ACSC (acquired by Veritas).
