SANTA CLARA -- Open Networking Summit (ONS) 2014 -- As you'd expect, the spotlight is very much on software-defined networking (SDN) at ONS, a conclave of engineers, business leaders, and researchers from service providers, vendors, and the enterprise world gathered to discuss the latest trends in open source networking.

Much of the effort on Day 1 (Monday) was focused on setup and tutorials, with an opening keynote in the late afternoon. Click the image below for a gallery of what I saw.

 

Posh Accommodation
A deluxe room at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara, which adjoins the conference venue, the Santa Clara Convention Center. Kidding. Actually, this is a full-size diorama of a cell in Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, part of a history exhibit in the lobby of the Hyatt.

Re: I see Pac-Man graphs everywhere now, thanks!
Perhaps we should make a Pac-Man graph of Pac-Man graphs.

Pac-Man
This morning's keynote speaker also used a Pac-Man slide. This time the big part of the Pac-Man illustrated technology opex and the little part was capex. 

I sense a trend.

Re: Hungry?
Open Source is here--and anyone who denies it does so at their peril.   Hopefully the transformation will continue within the equipment providers.

Re: Hungry?
@SarahReedy:  Yeah, kinda got that vibe too with the pickle/cupcake combination.  Sadly I would probably do just that because I do enjoy a good pickle and a cupcake.  Usually not at the same time but hey, they're there, right?

I'm a supporter of open source, so it was nice to see how far it's come.  A sense of belonging is pretty key for any job really; it's one of the reasons why I'm no longer with my previous place of employement.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
