Cisco is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Open Networking Summit being held this week in Santa Clara. The focus of this year’s conference is, “A New Era of Open Source Networking” and we think it’s quite fitting given the amount of investment the community has made this year in some amazing Open Source projects and programs.

We’ll be at the event showcasing a number of cool technologies and also speaking about a number of projects, inclusive of; SDN, NFV, OpenDaylight, Fd.io and more. Dave Ward, CTO and Chief Architect of Cisco, will also be presenting at ONS. Dave will dive into reactive networking and SDN/NFV as the entropy of the reaction.

We’ll have several of our engineers, leaders and executives in attendance that focus on Open Source, SDN & NFV. Feel free to find us on Twitter @CiscoOpenSource or reach out directly at the event – we’d love to chat and get your feedback.
