Getting past Ideation; Crossing the SDN/NFV Deployment Chasm - Manish Singh, Tech Mahindra
For three years the industry has been in the ideation phase with countless PoCs to cite for. However, the industry still has not achieved any scale deployments of SDN/NFV. Market reality is that our industry is struggling to get past ideation. Achieving real world SDN/NFV implementations globally, at scale remains a key challenge. Our presentation will critically examine the key challenges SDN/NFV industry needs to tackle in order to break the deployment barrier. Presentation will closely explore the critical role of Systems Integrator (SI) in order to bring scale & speed to Network Transformation. Covered challenges range from:
- Plugging critical gaps to integrate open source solutions with existing infrastructure
- Automating closed loop control for Fault management, SLA management
- Integrating Release Automation etc. for DevOps
- Managing PNF + VNF Hybrid Networks
and More...

Macro Trends Shaping Open Networking - David Lenrow, Huawei
This is the science fiction and entertainment part of your program. Topics covered will not include what you can buy today and how to deploy it. This presentation will address a number of topics that are strongly influencing the evolution of the nascent SDN and open source networking movements. You may agree or disagree strongly, but you'll have to think. Topics covered will include
• Data Planes become Programmable
• Wire protocols become irrelevant
• Disaggregation - Old stuff cheap or wonderful new control plane?
• Micro-services, What if there was a unique IP address for each application/service?
• Common interfaces, When network solutions become fungible?
• Not your father's open source - risks in the new era of vendor initiated open source
• The Migration challenge: Hardware for tomorrows control plane

A Practitioner’s Guide to Open Source Software - Usage, Contribution, Leadership - Phil Robb, Linux Foundation
Open source software has taken the Networking and Service Provider industries by storm. As a result, many individuals and organizations have had their working environments severely disrupted. Those who used to write software strictly as a part of a corporate product team must now deal with many “external developers” that are part of an open source community. Those who used to produce vendor RFPs to procure products now find themselves needing to deal with the cacophony of voices in various open source projects to piece together a coherent technology strategy.

In this talk we’ll explain the best practices for dealing with this new world order from how to evaluate open source projects to engaging with them, and how to influence them. We’ll also talk about emerging trends in these open source communities and the likely issues and opportunities that will result.

Upstream Open Source Networking Development: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - Kyle Mestery, IBM; Russell Bryant, Red Hat; Justin Pettit, VMware
Open Source Networking reached critical mass in 2015, with an onslaught of new projects combining with many existing projects to create a vibrant ecosystem. Working upstream in many of these projects can require skills which are unique. Each project can do things a little differently. How can you help your people succeed as they navigate their way through the many different communities they encounter in Open Source networking?

In this talk, we will cover how to effectively work across many upstream Open Source networking projects. We'll compare how these projects take on new work, how they consume this new work, and ultimately how they fold it into their projects. We will take you on a light hearted ride through strategies which work and strategies which are guaranteed to fail. And we'll show you how to be effective in joining an Open Source networking community.

The Law of Subtraction: How Working with Less Can Help You Achieve More - Heidi Joy Tretheway, OpenStack Foundation
The Law of Subtraction: How working with less can help you achieve more (Heidi Joy Tretheway, OpenStack Foundation) - In the open source community, we often hear, "I wish I had more--people, money or time." But what if the success or failure of a project isn't determined by more? What if working with less works better?

This provocative presentation introduces the Law of Subtraction tailored to the unique challenges of open source project managers. Global marketing strategist Heidi Joy Tretheway identifies five subtraction strategies that managers and executives can use when resources and timelines are tight. Find out how to juggle priorities despite the "tyranny of the urgent" and how to influence volunteers and indirect reports. Also, discover your managerial blind spots--unique to your work style--that might be undermining your team's performance.

Using TOSCA to Model Your Network Services - Sivan Barzily; GigaSpaces; Chris Lauwers, Ubicity; Derek Palma; Vnomic
NFV is the hot new topic in telecom. Since telecom architectures are quite complex, it is very important that the orchestration of the various VNFs and components is executed in a standardized manner that is portable to any infrastructure. OASIS TOSCA (Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications) is an open standard domain specific language, with profiles based on popular languages such as YAML, that describes the topology of cloud based services, their components, relationships, and management processes. In this talk, we will explain how TOSCA can be used to model any VNF and network service and its components in a multi-VIM environment and present various TOSCA use cases being implemented in the real world.

ONF: Its Evolving Role in the Era of Open Source Networking - Dan Pitt, ONF
The Open Networking Foundation has never been easily pigeonholed as a particular kind of organization. Rather, we have strived to do whatever we can to accelerate the adoption of open SDN. Yes, we started with standards and continue to create some standards. But we have known from day one that standards alone will not achieve our objective, so we have always included aspects of commercial adoption by both vendors and operators. Since 2013 we have added open source software to our portfolio, not to become another ODL or ONOS or OPNFV or their ilk. Instead, we use open source to augment and accelerate the other things we do, in a unique and carefully crafted portfolio that maximizes impact with high resource efficiency. In this talk we will describe our thinking, principles, and practices and a (hopefully entertaining) compilation of lessons we have learned on the way.

Reshaping the Enterprise Private Cloud with SDNs: Pere Monclus, PLUMgrid

Enterprise private cloud requirements are evolving as software defined anything is opening new possibilities. From applications to infrastructure, operations teams are changing the traditional SDN architecture to become more than just programming the data center fabric. Modern SDNs are hardware agnostic and pervasive in hypervisors, operating systems, and applications with embedded security, network functions, analytics, monitoring, and intelligent services stitching that span across any virtual machine, container, or bare metal hybrid environments. Join this session to find out more about how modern SDNs are no longer just network programmability, but reshaping enterprise private clouds and end user experience.

Driving Standards from Code - ECI's Work with ONOS - Hayim Porat, ECI Telecom
ECI Telecom had traditionally developed proprietary code based on telecom industry standards. With SDN (and NFV) ECI made a strategic decision to move to open source. The first platform was chosen to be the SDN controller. After testing and evaluating several options ECI had decided to go with ONOS. Moreover, ECI had decided to take the approach of "code is king" by promoting innovation into industry standards (in this case Openflow) first contributing code to the community, let the community asses its value and only then, try to take it to the SDOs.

In this presentation we will present the process ECI went through in adopting open-source and will discuss the work we have done in augmenting OF with optical capabilities as well as our suggestions for a much more agile packet based OF and its impact on the controller architecture.
