MONTREAL -- Kontron, a global provider of cloud and carrier-class integrated infrastructure platforms, and Inocybe Technologies, a leading Open Networking technology provider from the data center to the network edge, today announced cooperative plans to bring fully integrated 'out-of-the-box' Open Networking platforms to the enterprise and service provider communities.

Both companies will be at SDN NFV World Congress 2017 in The Hague, October 9-13 to discuss the Open Networking solutions and switches they are developing in partnership.

Integration work will consist of marrying Kontron SYMKLOUD white box switching and other hardware platforms together with various software stack components that make up the Inocybe Open Networking Platform, including OpenDaylight SDN, VPP and OpenSwitch.

"Inocybe and Kontron both share a common and aligned mission to ensure that open source software is the appropriate means for CSPs to accelerate SDN and NFV production deployments," said John Zannos, Chief Revenue Officer, Inocybe. "With the various Kontron rack-level white box switch, compute and storage hardware, we are developing a full range of Open Networking solutions that simplify SDN and NFV for our customers.

"Inocybe is clearly a strategic fit for Kontron and our line of SYMKLOUD platforms," said Benoit Robert, VP Strategy & Marketing, Kontron. "After more than a decade of SDN development, and as a leading contributor to ODL and other networking stack pieces, Inocybe has gained tremendous market traction in providing automated and intelligent, open source networking for both enterprises and service providers."

Kontron and Inocybe will be exhibiting at the SDN NFV World Congress 2017 at booth C14, World Forum, The Hague, Netherlands, 9-13 October 2017.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
