SDN Workshops

Software Defined Networking (SDN) has emerged from the Data Center, as a mainstream networking approach that will transform enterprise networking and telecommunications. The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is leading the way to facilitate the journey to open SDN, with over 150 members, and guidance from many of the prominent network operators around the globe.

ONF Workshops will cover the SDN value proposition, address key challenges that need to be overcome for adoption, share use cases and discuss the role of open source software in the SDN ecosystem.


ONF SDN Workshop @ BTE

Presented by the Open Networking Foundation
Big Telecom Event
Monday, June 8, 2015

Nowhere is software-defined networking (SDN) evolving more rapidly than for the carriers. Driven by skyrocketing demands for bandwidth, network functions virtualization (NFV) and a dramatically changing competitive landscape, operators were never more motivated to transform their network and their operations through Open SDN. 

In this workshop, hosted by the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) leaders from the carrier SDN community will share their insights on the state of carrier SDN. Operators will share their initial experiences in evaluating early technologies and products to address their target use cases. Finally, the event will culminate in a panel discussion bringing together the leaders from many of the key industry groups, SDOs and open source projects to discuss how they are facilitating the transition. Click here for more details about the workshop and agenda.

ONF Software Defined Networking Workshop

Presented by the Open Networking Foundation
IP Expo Europe
Wednesday, Oct. 8th (11:00 am – 5:30 pm)

The ONF/SDN Workshop enables leading ONF members to address the SDN Value Proposition for Data Centers, Enterprise, and the Cloud based on pragmatic and real-world use cases. Key challenges will be raised that must be overcome to enable widespread adoption. We also intend to share how SDN is altering the role of standards in networking, and the emergence of open source software as a key factor for future adoption.

This Workshop has been organised by the ONF's Market Education Committee. Click here for more details.

SDN & OpenFlow® Workshop

Presented by the Open Networking Foundation
SDN & OpenFlow® World Congress
Tuesday, Oct. 14th (9:00 am – 3:00 pm)

In this workshop, forward-thinking ONF members will share network operator driven use cases for a range of network operators spanning major carriers to the Data Center. We will also offer a glimpse of selected ONF member startups, and why multi-layer control is important. In addition, we will examine how SDN and Network Functions Virtualization are transforming how standards will be adopted in future networks, including the role of open source software.
