Workshop 7: Software Defined Networking
Workshop 7: Software Defined Networking
Software Defined Networking has rapidly emerged from a research exploit to a transformative force that is reshaping the entire networking and telecommunications landscape. Everybody’s talking about it – but few are defining the opportunities from the carrier point of view. This workshop delves beyond the basics, exploring from multiple industry perspectives the operative question: How will operators benefit from SDN?
While not necessarily new – centralized control and intelligence have been deployed in carrier networks for years – SDN offers unprecedented openness, service agility and cost reduction.
Join us as a diverse and innovative group of market leaders, startups and analysts present SDN from both a markets and technology vantage point, exploring the implications:
- Why SDN?
- Is SDN viable?
- How big is the opportunity?
- What lies ahead?
Note: Complimentary Breakfast is included for workshop attendees on Tuesday, October 8 at 7:30 am.

|1:00 pm - 1:55 pm||An Overview of Software Defined Networking, OpenFlow and the Open Networking Foundation|
|This high-level introduction to Software Defined Networking will establish a reference point for the entire workshop. We will examine the Open Networking Foundation SDN architecture model, along with the first SDN standard, OpenFlow, and an overview of the ONF.
|2:00 pm – 3:00 pm||SDN User Perspective: How Carriers Will Gain Competitive Advantage with SDN|
|By enabling a degree of programmability previously unattainable, carriers are afforded the potential to unleash unprecedented innovation in their networks, In this panel discussion, SDN visionaries will discuss the SDN value proposition, key use cases, and the challenges to realize the SDN vision in the carrier network.|
|3:00 pm – 3:10 pm||Break|
|3:10 pm - 4:05 pm||SDN Cloud Perspective: Virtualization and Automation|
|The advent of the cloud has been perhaps the most important factor driving the direction of SDN. In this panel discussion, experts examine how SDN can revamp the cloud network architecture through adoption of Virtualization and Automation, two critical aspects already exploited in the Compute and Storage domains in the data center.|
|4:10 pm – 5:00 pm||Face-Off: What All the Big Companies are doing in SDN|
|The widespread implications of SDN are already motivating the traditional OEMs to reassess their portfolios and core competencies around software. In this panel, we will examine a select and diverse set of OEMs to compare and contrast their strategies and plans|

|7:30 am - 8:30 am||Complimentary breakfast|
|8:30 am - 9:10 am||Analyst Panel|
|Join our distinguished analysts as they come to grips with how to appropriately quantify the SDN opportunity. In addition to sharing their forecasts, panelists will offer insights on their forecasting models, including SDN segmentation, end-user influences, and perhaps most importantly, forecast assumptions.|
|9:15 am - 10:00 am||What’s Ahead: SDN & Mobile Networks|
|SDN is likely to emerge first in the wireline segments. Activities in the ONF are already underway to extend OpenFlow from Layer 2-3 to Optical Transport networks (Layer 0-1). In this panel, a diverse set of experts will discuss how SDN can benefit mobile operators as well.|
