PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Networking Foundation (ONF), a non-profit organization dedicated to
accelerating the adoption of open Software-Defined Networking (SDN),
today announced that it will co-host the second J.P.
Morgan SDN Forum with J.P. Morgan Equity Research analyst Rod Hall
on Sept. 25 at the Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel located in Palo Alto, Calif.
The J.P. Morgan SDN Forum provides a venue for networking companies to
join together and discuss SDN trends and the potential for SDN to change
the competitive landscape of networking. The event program consists of
both panel discussions and presentations from networking companies and
“SDN and its underlying technologies offer a disruptive approach to
networking, and we’re excited to co-host an event with J.P. Morgan that
brings together companies and key influencers helping to shape the SDN
movement,” said Dan Pitt, executive director of the Open Networking
Foundation. “Without collaborative opportunities to discuss trends,
innovation, and end-user requirements, the commercialization and global
deployment of SDN would prove difficult. It is ONF’s mission to
accelerate the adoption of open SDN, and we will continue to do so
through a wide gamut of initiatives and activities that promote open SDN
technologies and standards.”
A panel comprised primarily of newer, innovative companies involved in
the SDN movement will be moderated by ONF’s silicon SDN expert Martin
Izzard on Sept. 25 at 9:15 a.m. Titled “The Place of Silicon in SDN,”
this panel will examine the degree to which silicon and existing
networking systems can and will support SDN, as well as silicon’s future
market role. Panelists include:
ONF is an end-user advocate encouraging the commercialization,
implementation, and deployment of open SDN and the OpenFlow™ protocol.
ONF encourages innovation in the SDN space through a variety of
opportunities and activities including the drafting of implementable
standards, frameworks, and migration strategies; prototype
demonstrations, interoperability experiments, and PlugFests; and product
announcements and releases. The non-profit organization is composed of
more than 100 member companies from some of the world’s most influential
network operators, service providers, equipment manufacturers, end
users, and more.
Launched in 2011 by Deutsche Telekom, Facebook, Google, Microsoft,
Verizon, and Yahoo!, the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is a growing
non-profit organization with more than 100 members whose mission is to
accelerate the adoption of open SDN. ONF promotes open SDN and OpenFlow
