During this session Brian will provide an overview of how Intel drives and simplifies network transformation and adoption of SDN and NFV in Telco, Cloud and Enterprise. The discussion will focus on Intel ONP, a software reference architecture platform that integrates Open Source software and hardware elements optimized for SDN and NFV. We will show how Intel ONP is addressing performance, manageability and scalability gaps through contribution to Open vSwitch, DPDK, OpenStack, and Open Daylight. Overall, Intel ONP is a better together integrated reference architecture that can be used to accelerate development efforts, evaluations and trials of SDN & NFV solutions.
