OpenTech Australia - SDN Down Under

The Open Networking Forum's fourth regional community building SDN symposium

14 Dec-2015

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is revolutionising the way networks are provisioned and managed. SDN is now being used by innovative telecommunications operators and data centre operators to reduce costs, improve performance, avoid vendor lock-in and optimize capacity.

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is a user-driven organization dedicated to the promotion andadoption of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) through open standards development.

ONF is co-hosting OpenTech Australia in collaboration with CSIRO, the University of NSW, AARNet (Australia’s Academic Research Network) and Data61/NICTA (Australia’s Centre of Excellence in ICT research). This is the first time such an event has been held in the southern hemisphere.

OpenTech Australia is a community building SDN Symposium where international and local experts will discuss the latest technologies, trends and applications. It will also be an opportunity for potential users of SDN technology to meet and share experiences, building a local community.

Dr Dan Pitt, Executive Director of the Open Networking Foundation will be presenting along with futurist Shara Evans, who will give an exciting vision for a software enabled world. AARNet's Network Architect David Wilde is also in the lineup, speaking about the Australia-wide SDN Testbed and future plans.
