Open Networking Summit (ONS) was a sold-out success, attracting 3200 attendees. Inventors, innovators, and leaders from different parts of the worldwide Software-Defined Networking (SDN) ecosystem spoke about implementations and deployments of SDN and the OpenFlow® protocol. One of the strongest themes amongst the speakers was the alignment of the network with business priorities.
The expo hall brought more than 40 company exhibitors and demonstrations, along with 11 academic demonstrations and 12 academic posters showing advances in both development and application. ONS effectively highlighted the successful deployments of SDN and the OpenFlow® protocol.
