Software-Defined Networking and OpenFlow

Eric Choi, Brocade

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging concept that proposes to disaggregate the traditional vertically integrated networking stack in order to improve network flexibility and manageability. SDN will enable 'mass customization' of network operations to better support differentiated cloud services. Software-Defined Networking comprises a group of technologies that open the data, control, and management planes of the network to participate more easily in broader orchestration frameworks through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). These APIs also facilitate the development of a rich new set of network applications and services from a wider range of sources, including independent developers, Value-Added Resellers (VARs), and user organizations themselves. In this presentation, we would like to give you an introduction about the Openflow protocol, its use cases and a network architecture through which software defined network can be realized in the large scale data centre and wan network.

BGP evolution - from "SDN" perspective

Kasu Venkat Reddy, Cisco

SDN (Software Defined Network) will bring more agility and serviceability to networks. And one of the essences of SDN is "Abstraction". It is the basis for flexible programmability, virtualization, and tangibility.

BGP is the inter-domain routing protocol, which has been proven to scale and is even more evolving. This session discusses how BGP can be a method for "Abstraction", and thus can be a powerful tool for SDN. A few Internet Drafts and the use cases will also be discussed.
