ONS 2017 jpgIn just two weeks, enterprises, cloud and service providers will gather to share insights, highlight innovation and discuss the future of open source at The Linux Foundation’s Open Networking Summit, the industry's largest and most inclusive open networking and orchestration event in the world taking place April 3-6 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

The much-anticipated event will draw more than thousands of attendees – CIOs, CTOs and cloud execs, architects, developers and operators – to dive into all things open networking across enterprise, cloud and service providers.

With more than 75 tutorials, workshops and sessions, ONS will also feature ONOS® and CORD® Mini-Summits, comprised of seven 30-minute presentations from our partners and collaborators. Speakers for these exciting mini-summits come from a diverse set of organizations – representing the vibrant ecosystems growing around both ONOS and CORD open source projects – including Argela, AT&T, Broadcom, Ciena, Criterion Networks, Huawei, Telefonica, NTT Communications, POSTECH, Radisys and ONF.

The CORD Mini Summit will highlight the great progress the CORD community has been making on all fronts: platform, residential, mobile and enterprise versions of CORD, a variety of services realized, and experience with POCs, lab trials and field trials. These CORD sessions will include the following: a project introduction and roadmap review; an overview of A-CORD; a dive into R-CORD and VOLTHA; discussion of E-CORD; an overview of M-CORD’s place in 5G enablement; Merchant Silicon for CORD; and a session on the following Deployment Environments: CORD-in-a-Box, CORD in a Cloud, Physical Pod and OPNFV Lab.

The ONOS Mini Summit will feature exciting use case presentations, technical sessions and hands-on design workshops – illustrating how leading organizations currently use ONOS to meet their business needs through app development, SDN-IP, multi-domain environments, security, system testing, global SDN deployment and service models. These interactive sessions will kick off with an introduction to ONOS; a use case presentation on NTT Deployment; a use case review of Ciena with Production-Ready ONOS; a use case session on Huawei Agile Controller and Gluon; a dive into the ONOS Roadmap; a discussion around how to get involved in the ever-growing ONOS community; and overview of the new ONOS Dynamic Configuration & Deployment Brigades, along with a presentation on the ONOS Virtualization Brigade, covering member experiences and lessons learned.
