OpenDaylight Schedules Summit
SAN FRANCISCO -- The OpenDaylight Project, a community-led and industry-supported open source platform to advance Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), today announced the creation of the OpenDaylight Summit and revealed the program. The new conference is where enterprises, carriers and equipment providers come together to collaborate and learn about SDN and NFV. Hosted by The Linux Foundation, the inaugural OpenDaylight Summit will take place in Santa Clara, Calif., February 4-5, 2014.
To enable a level of network programmability that will significantly improve functionality, flexibility and adaptability we need to evolve to software-defined architectures. The OpenDaylight Summit unites the communities, projects, products and companies that are driving today’s SDN and NFV ecosystems, along with best practices from the world of open source software and collaborative development. It includes keynotes, technical sessions and hands-on design workshops hosted by industry leaders and is where the OpenDaylight developer community will convene to set the technical direction for the project for the year ahead.
“Achieving the promise of SDN and NFV will require industry-wide collaboration,” said Neela Jacques, executive director for OpenDaylight. “This event is where people can collaborate face-to-face, interact with code and work directly with the developers who are tackling this challenge.”
