Matt Davy, Indiana University

Matt Davy is the network architect for Indiana University. He provides leadership in the design and planning of research and education networks at the enterprise, regional and national level. He is currently focused on the development and deployment of OpenFlow technologies and the development of the GlobalNOC's internship and training program that provides hands-on networking experience and training to undergraduate and graduate students.

Chris Tracy, ESnet

Chris Tracy is a Network Engineer at the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) in the Computational Research Division of the Computing Sciences Directorate of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. ESnet is the high performance networking facility of the US Department of Energy Office of Science. ESnet's mission is to enable those aspects of the DOE Office of Science research mission that depend on high performance networking for success. <BR><BR> Prior to joining ESnet, Chris was a Co-PI on the GENI MANFRED proposal and was one of the systems/optical network engineers for the NSF DRAGON project, a \$6.5M research program to deploy "experimental" optical networks utilizing novel technologies and services to provide real and measurable advantage to advanced e-science applications. The program was a collaborative project between the Mid-Atlantic Crossroads, the USC Information Sciences Institute East, George Mason University, and the University of Maryland College Park. Chris has also directly contributed to Internet2's HOPI/DCN project since April 2004. <BR><BR> Chris was also responsible for the deployment and operational management of the DRAGON network - a lambda-switched network which includes over 100 miles of fiber in the Washington DC/Baltimore metro area connecting 7+ POPs with ROADMs, OADMs, L2 switches, routers, etc. He has also helped with strategic planning and providing engineering support for the DRAGON, HOPI, and DCN networks. <BR><BR> Prior to MAX, Chris was a Senior Network Engineer for seven years at a regional ISP in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. He helped to manage the organization's technical needs, working at every layer from the ISP's physical connectivity up the stack to application/service deployment and management. He has presented at LISA 2002, and was also involved with the Pittsburgh SAGE organization during this time. He has been actively involved with the SCinet planning committee between 2002-2006, primarily working with the IT and WAN groups. <BR><BR> Chris received a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 2001, and is currently pursuing a master's degree in telecommunications management at University of Maryland University College (UMUC). He has worked in computing and networking since 1997.
Abstract: OpenFlow: An Update

About 20 college campuses are deploying OpenFlow in some part of their network. There appear to be two reasons: 1. It enables their researchers to try out new ideas in a realistic production network, and 2. Because it gives them the ability to add new features to their network.

In this talk I'll give an update on the progress of OpenFlow, why people are using it, and the future standardization plans. In an accompanying talk, Matt Davy (IU and GRNOC) will describe the current and future deployments, and his plans to bring OpenFlow to many campus networks.



OpenFlow Trials and Deployments

OpenFlow is already being tested and deployed at universities and research labs around the world. This presentation will provide an overview of the current OpenFlow trials and deployments globally. Indiana University will share their own experiences from deploying OpenFlow on both enterprise and wide-area research networks as well as their plans for developing and deploying OpenFlow applications to improve how they mange networks.
