Building the Carrier Cloud: Core, Interconnect, Access

    Introducing OpenFlow: Software-Defined Networking for Cloud

 

 

 

“ONF is delighted to co-host the first Cloud-Net Summit alongside Layer123.

 

We look forward to sharing our networking vision face-to-face with influential leaders and activists from Europe’s principal carriers and technology organisations. The intense interest in OpenFlow and SDN, high growth in ONF membership, and the rapid surge towards commercialisation are strong evidence of a pent- up market need.

 

Join us to discover and debate the particular value of OpenFlow in the emerging Carrier Cloud business opportunity, and the further potential of Software-Defined Networking as a transformational approach to existing and future carrier networking challenges”.

 

- Dan Pitt, Executive Director, Open Networking Foundation.
