Intel's Open Network Platform Strategy

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is driving innovation at all level of networking technology and service delivery models. Separate control and data planes hold the promise of creating flexible and adaptable networks that can quickly respond to application and operational needs. But at the same time, the performance and functionality needs of various layers must be considered. Intel has introduced its Open Network Platform (ONP) Strategy to address the benefits and openness of commodity technology at both the server layer and the networking layer, while taking advantage of the power of and functionality of switch silicon. Come hear Sanjay Rungta talk about Intel's Open Network Platform Strategy as well as Intel's SDN motivation and challenges.

    Awesome presentation. The presenter provided a good perspective of an IT person as to why and how SDN/ONP will benefit the data center. Obviously, one and a half hrs is a short time to discuss all the technical aspects but I like the practical and open approach of the presenter.

    Presenter was hard to understand and seemed to lack focus. Could have been pretty good but...
