Intel® Developer Zone SDN/NFV Dev Lab (Must Apply)


Want to learn how the nuts and bolts (read various open source components) of Software defined networking and Network Function Virtualization work in the new landscape of scalable, agile and white box networking world?

This one-day lab will have deep-dive sessions and hands on labs led by experts. We have two parallel tracks here. While Track 1 focuses on how to use underlying infrastructure more effectively in a baremetal and VM environment using Open Stack, track 2 focuses on packet processing aspect of Virtual network functions on bare metal and container environment.

The value of this lab is not just to put your heads down and learn but also to work with other developers and leaders in the community and get inspired by them.
