Moving up the Stack with Programmability & SDN: Real World Implementations & Architectures
Time 07/17/12 09:50AM-10:10AM
Software-defined networking, OpenFlow and new architectures and technologies are leading the storylines of many blogs, press articles, research papers and more. Customers from large service-providers to financial institutions, government and academia are all working towards architecting and implementing these solutions inside of their businesses, but what does this really look like, and what does a true software-defined network deliver? David Ward, CTO & Chief Architect at Cisco Systems will dig into the details of what software-defined networking means for real world networks and what other elements need to be included to make it successful. In addition, architectural strategy and case-studies around open programmability to showcase the reality versus fiction of what scales, what can be delivered, and the best path to take when building out your programmability efforts for the future will be discussed as well as demonstrated at booths at the show as add-ons to the discussion.
