Software Defined Networking, OpenFlow, ARCCN, and the Skolkovo Innovation Centre MEETING and WEBINAR
OTBC (Oregon Technology Business Center)

Software Defined Networking (SDN) replaces dedicated network hardware with standards based software running on servers that implements the control plane of switches and routers. Dr. Turbyfill will discus ARCCN's work to provide an OpenFlow standard-based application development network platform taking much of the features and functionality that exist inside custom proprietary software and driving it into an open SDN space. OpenFlow is an API that links an Ethernet switch and a controller. OpenFlow implements layer 2 Ethernet switches as flows directed by a centralized controller(s).

ARCCN is a non-profit organization, located in the Skolkovo Innovation Center, Moscow. Skolkovo is Russia’s answer to Silicon Valley. Its goal is "to concentrate international intellectual capital, thereby stimulating the development of break-through projects and technologies." Dr. Turbyfill will also discuss ARCCN's relationship with Skolkovo and how ARCCN is building collaborative relationships with international academic, research and commercial organizations to achieve its goals.

A light dinner of pizza and beverage will be supplied.

Registration fee:
IEEE Members: $4; Non-members: $6

Speaker Biography:

Dr. Turbyfill holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Her first research project in the field of Computer Science was the Wisconsin Benchmark that pioneered benchmarks by which relational database systems are measured today. She has advanced her career with milestones consisting of the first commercial implementations of leading edge products such as: the first firewall appliance, SunScreen SPF-100 and SKIP, one of the first commercial Virtual Private Networks (VPN); the first managed security service and the first round trip email marketing service. While at Sun Microsystems, she worked with CISSP, a coalition of companies, on changing export controls on encryption. As VP of Engineering at StackSafe, she led the team that developed the StackSafe Test Center, which was named the 2008 ITIL Innovation of the Year. In 2009 Dr. Turbyfill was inducted into the Women in Technology International's (WITI) Hall of Fame for her longstanding commitment to create opportunities for women in technology careers.

Out of the Box Network Developer Meet Up - Reality of SDN, Container Networking, and Server Networking Technologies
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

In this meet up we will talk about the different Buzz words in NFV and SDN space. What is SDN and the role it plays in networking. How do Containers fit into the whole space, and why is everyone so interested in containers? Lastly we will talk about how knowing about hardware and how to utilize the hardware functionality helps accelerate the functionality of VNFs in the OpenStack environment.

First talk begins at 5:30PM.

Talk 1: What is SDN really?

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is the hot topic in networking. There are many projects and products all claiming to be SDN, so what is it really? Why does SDN matter? and what is happening in the resurgent networking space?

About the speaker: Stephen Hemminger is a Linux developer who specializes in networking. He has worked for Linux Foundation, Brocade (Vyatta) and now Microsoft. As maintainer of the Linux bridging and the iproute2 utilities, he contributes regularly to the Linux kernel and DPDK projects. Having been involved with TCP/IP since the early days of UNIX, he is quite familiar with the congestion and SMP issues. Steve works on so integrating so many different networking pieces that he decided to give himself the title of Network Plumber.

Talk 2: Container networking

First virtual machines and now containers? What are containers, anyway? We’ll discuss what a container is, how it’s different from a virtual machine and then explore configuration options for networking in a container world. We’ll also go over some basic ways of putting containers together into applications and how to make Linux namespaces work for you.

About the speaker: Kevin Bohan is a software architect in the Network Platforms Group at Intel. He spends most of his time working on performance optimization of network virtualization technologies being utilized in the telecommunications industry. Prior to Intel, he worked in academia in the areas of advanced networking, supercomputing and embedded systems.

Talk 3: Server Networking for the Curious

Confused about the differences in server-based networking technologies? Maybe you’ve heard or read about DPDK, or VPP, or other technologies, but the bigger picture is hard to see. We’ll walk through a short survey of some of the most important and useful packet-processing tools, both in hardware and in open source, and why you might be interested in them.

About the speaker: Jim Chamings is a Sr. Software Engineer at Intel, working in the Datacenter Scale Engineering team. His focus is on enabling Cloud and SDN/NFV developers to get the maximum value out of their datacenters
