The Future of the Internet 2014: Defining Software Defined Networks
Buzzword alert! Like “Cloud” before it, “SDN” is quickly becoming all the rage. Also like “cloud”, SDN has some potentially very interesting implications. But what does SDN mean for you and your business?
Come find out at The Future of the Internet 2014!
At this year's event, the Colorado Chapter of the Internet Society (CO ISOC) is bringing together experts and professionals from across the globe to discuss SDN, NfV, open networking, and all things related to network programability; the ability for networked applications to more directly interact with network elements such as routers, switches, and firewalls).
Whether you call it Software Defined Networking, Software Driven Networks, Open Networking, Cloud Routing, Network Virtualization, or something else; the exciting part is extrapolating this "SDN" trend into the future as we make these programs and languages more fully featured and more standardized. SDN is no magic pill, but it does have the potential to drastically simplify network operations while simultaneously increasing network efficiency.
You've heard the hype, now come learn the facts! This first annual CO ISOC Future of the Internet event will focus on the real problems and on finding the best solutions, so that you can leave informed, ready to tackle the newest networking trends while avoiding the pitfalls of the newest buzzword.
Join us August 2014 in Denver to witness The Future of the Internet!
