Open Network Exchange: SDN, OpenFlow and Network Virtualization
Thank you to our Attendees and Event Sponsors for making the launch 
Open Network Exchange such a great event!

Reshaping the Network

Networking is at a crossroads, with demand for bandwidth accelerating exponentially and new technologies poised to expand the possibilities for network virtualization and interoperability like never before.

Software Defined Networking (SDN)/Network Virtualization promises to redefine the way we build and manage networks by abstracting the network layers and centralizing and simplifying management. In an SDN world, you’ll be able to program the network as a universal construct instead of tuning it element by element.

The advantages include everything from: 
  • Advanced capabilities
  • Simplified architecture
  • Ease of management
  • Increased resource utilization

OpenFlow and Network Virtualization

Network World’s regional Tech Tour, Open Network Exchange, brings together SDN focused industry analysts, technology providers and IT professionals to network and discuss key information about disruptive technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN), OpenFlow protocol and network virtualization.

SDN is still more vision than reality, and buyers need inside knowledge about how it will work, the promise, how we get there from here, and what the business case is. Attend this one-day event to gain a clear understanding of how SDN works, its potential in the enterprise, and why leading, bellwether organizations are leveraging it for data center and large-scale networking efficiency.
