Santa Clara, Calif. (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
ConteXtream, the leading Carrier-SDN solution provider, today announced that Sharon Barkai, co-founder of ConteXtream, will be presenting with Cisco Systems at the The Linux Foundation’s OpenDaylight Summit. Barkai will present as a part of the Networking Programming & Community track in a session entitled “Location ID Separation Protocol (LISP) Flow Mapping for Software Defined Networking (SDN) & Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).” ConteXtream is also a bronze sponsor of the event.
In collaboration with Cisco Systems, ConteXtream recently contributed a LISP-based mapping service to the open source SDN project, OpenDaylight. The joint contribution enables the federation of SDN controllers across a WAN and provides a flexible map-and-encap framework that can be used in overlay network applications and decouples network control plane from the forwarding plane. Network programmability is achieved by programming forwarding policies such as mobility, service chaining, and traffic engineering in the mapping system, where the data plane elements can fetch these policies on demand as new flows arrive. This session will explain how the LISP Flow Mapping project in OpenDaylight can be used to enable advanced SDN and NFV use cases including Mobile Core and Gi-Cloud use cases.
WHO: Sharon Barkai, co-founder of ConteXtream and Vina Ermagan, technical leader in the Enterprise Networking Labs at Cisco Systems
WHAT: “LISP Flow Mapping for SDN & NFV”
WHEN: Wednesday, February 5 at 11:20 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST)
The OpenDaylight Summit will be held February 4-5, 2014.
WHERE: Hyatt Santa Clara, 5101 Great America Pkwy, Santa Clara, Calif., 95054
