Session Description

Separating the network control plane from the data forwarding plane – the essential concept of software-defined networking or network virtualization – presents vast possibilities for more efficient use of network resources. In two sessions, leading theorists and developers will describe and explain how virtualization can produce tremendous leaps forward in throughput, capacity and efficiency – and how these attributes can change the game for network operators and their customers.

Learn about:

  • open software architecture for remote access nodes
  • service and management orchestration
  • service delivery platforms optimized for business services
  • driving towards SDN for optical access networks
  • resource scheduling considerations for cloud NFV
  • implementing a massive-scale programmable DOCSIS network
