The annual Open Networking Summit (ONS) is coming to the Santa Clara Convention Center April 16-17, 2013. ONS was created by the founders of SDN to provide an effective means for both sharing and exploring key developments in OpenFlow/SDN. This gathering place for top SDN and OpenFlow minds will include well-known contributors like Scott Shenker, Nick McKeown, and VMware’s Martin Casado.
At ONS 2013, researchers, business leaders, and engineers will gather to unite all SDN stakeholders in a common purpose — the advancement of this revolutionary technology. Listen to the inventors and architects that are shaping the future of software-defined networks. Attendees will find themselves immersed in the latest cutting-edge SDN research and developments.
Keynote speakers will include Jayshree Ullal, CEO of Arista Networks, a business developing cloud networking capabilities. Ullal is a former Senior VP at Cisco.
She will be joined by Vint Cerf, billed as the “Chief Internet Evangelist” at Google. Cerf is known as one of the “Fathers of the Internet” in part because of his pioneering work in developing the TCP/IP protocols.
Cerf and Ullal will be joined by another keynote speaker, Bethany Mayer, a Senior VP at Hewlett Packard with networking responsibilities. The fourth keynote speaker will be Rose Schooler, from the Intel Corporation. Schooler has networking and online storage responsibilities at Intel.
Valley buzz has accompanied anticipation of this upcoming event since last fall. The rise of SDN in 2012 was accompanied by a significant rise in attendance at last year’s event. More than 900 attended in 2012, and attendance easily in excess of 1000 is projected for the 2013 edition.
The Santa Clara Open Networking Summit will undoubtedly provide fertile ground for the advancement of SDN. The very latest research will be shared. The highest caliber presentations will occur. Exhibitions and tutorials will also fill out the schedule. In this stimulating intellectual and innovative environment, community members will enjoy an endless sharing of both concrete and advanced conceptual ideas.
ONS has become the premiere SDN event in part because it is a non-profit summit. It is specifically community-created to focus upon serving the community. The Open Network Summit is also distinctive in that no one is paid to speak, and no one pays to speak either. This fact distinguishes the Open networking Summit from some other industry conferences. Furthermore, content is selected independently on the basis on quality alone. This egalitarian approach has proven popular within the SDN community.
Attendees will gain invaluable insight into how disruptive SDN technology can be put to use in effective new ways. Learn as well from the experiences of the early adopters of SDN. Again, the Open Networking Summit is set for April 16-17, 2013 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
