1st Wellington SDN Workshop (WSW) 2015
The SDN Workshop - 18 & 19 February 2015 in Wellington, New Zealand.The workshop is over but the slides are available under the Programme tab.
Scope Future generation networking systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are networked, organised, configured, optimized, and recovered automatically based on their operating situation. With the emergence of Software Defined Networks (SDN), context awareness and dynamic adaptive services and application are gaining much attention since they allow automatic configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, services, and applications to user's context change. In addition, context awareness, with the help of software defined and cognitive systems, allows customisation of operating parameters of devices, users, applications, and networks based on the current context. This first workshop intends to introduce software defined networking concepts and practice for people new to the field. The workshop will also be a forum for practitioners from industry, academia and government to exchange ideas, present new results and provide future vision on these topics. The morning sessions will consist of talks, while the afternoon sessions will be more hands-on. To make the most of the afternoon sessions, you should have some basic programming experience (we will be using Python) and you need to bring a laptop.

About our sponsors: Pica8 pioneered open networking with PicOS™, the first network operating system that enables customers to easily migrate from conventional networking to software-defined networking (SDN) using commodity bare metal switches. PicOS provides extensive support for traditional switching and routing protocols and delivers SDN solutions through Pica8’s adoption of Open-vSwitch (OVS). Pica8 can provide PicOS, switching hardware or both in a fully integrated package as part of an end-to-end data center SDN solution, and makes adopting SDN easy with a Starter Kit that enables deployment in hours rather than months. Pica8 is a global company headquartered in Palo Alto, California. For more information, visit www.pica8.com or follow @pica8 on Twitter.
