Rob Sherwood, Big Switch Networks

For the last 15 years, Rob Sherwood has worked in networking as an administrator, researcher, and programmer---typically all at once. Recently, Rob has spent the last three years developing and evangelizing the emerging OpenFlow standard with a focus on network virtualization. His prototype OpenFlow-based network hypervisor, the "FlowVisor", allows production and experiment traffic to safely co-exist on the same physical network and is currently deployed in numerous R&E networks. Rob's dissertation work on network measurement and security was done at University of Maryland and he is currently employed by Big Switch Networks--an OpenFlow-based network virtualization start-up in Silicon Valley.
Abstract: OpenFlow is a rapidly emerging technology that provides programmatic control of switches and routers. It has gained significant industry uptake both in the operator and vendor communities as evidenced by Internet2's NDDI OS3I 34-POP OpenFlow deployment plans and the recent formation of the Open Network Foundation (www.opennetworkingfoundation.org). This talk will describe the what OpenFlow is, what problems it can solve, current events and future plans for the OpenFlow movement including: brief OpenFlow tutorial the Open Networking Foundation new deployments current vendor and hardware support status what's new in OpenFlow version 1.1. and projected new protocol features future directions and next steps.
