Solutions Theatre at the OpenDaylight Summit, 2015

We are excited that SDN infrastructure platforms enable us to integrate user-centric network traffic into our analytics engine and provide tools for teachers to enhance Internet experiences per classroom.

Elbrys, an SDN App developer on the OpenDaylight platform, will be demonstrating its SDN School App for K-12 education customers at the OpenDaylight Summit 2015. The Elbrys SDN application features integration and interoperability with industry partners - HP, Brocade, Tallac, Pica8 and EdgeCore.

The Elbrys SDN School Application for K-12 puts the power of classroom Internet resources in the hands of teachers. Teachers are able to monitor dynamic lists of approved web resources integrated with 3rd party Learning Management Systems (LMS). With this level of control and management at their fingertips, through an easy to use interface, overall attention, participation and student performance is increased. The Elbrys solution demonstrates an SDN Application running atop the Elbrys OpenNAC NFV and industry OpenDaylight controllers. It is also based on a scalable Docker container-based cloud network.

“As an IoT application developer, Elbrys arrived at SDN with a focus on helping K-12 schools achieve specific classroom goals through data analytics,” said Jim Burns, CTO of Elbrys Networks. “We are excited that SDN infrastructure platforms enable us to integrate user-centric network traffic into our analytics engine and provide tools for teachers to enhance Internet experiences per classroom.”

See what some of our Partners have to say about our SDN application:

Brocade
“The Elbrys SDN School App is an excellent example of how end-user customers can reap the benefits of SDN, without the usual complexities of deployment. We see innovative new apps and services as the next step in SDN market growth.” Kevin Woods, Director of Product Management, Software Networking at Brocade.

Pica8, Inc.
"We are excited to work with leading SDN App developers like Elbrys. A thriving ecosystem drives the flexibility and choice that are the hallmarks of why customers avoid lock with SDN," said Niraj Jain, Vice President of Business Development, Pica8. “We continue to expand our ecosystem around OpenDaylight to give our customers confidence that they can build custom solutions using white box hardware and our PicOS network operating system (NOS) as the foundation."

Tallac Networks
“It is exciting to partner with SDN App partners like Elbrys and to see SDN Apps interact with people outside of IT, like teachers. But it is even more exciting to imagine Managed Service Providers monetizing these applications at scale as cloud-based services offered on a monthly subscription,” commented Bill Johnson, CEO of Tallac Networks.

The Elbrys SDN App platform is designed for network engineers to easily design, build and deploy enterprise apps based on industry OpenDaylight controllers. Elbrys provides an abstraction layer for network access control and enables developers to simply build applications on a RESTFul API.
