Ed Crabbe, Google.
Abstract: Most of what we hear about OpenFlow or Software Defined Networking is very optimistic and abstract, with a "this will change the world" tone. But the market is still nascent, and there are few deployments in production today. How do we make sense of this dichotomy? The panelists will talk about OpenFlow from a hardware vendor, software vendor and network operator perspective followed by Q&A discussion.
