Spring 2015 Research Track

The open networking movement promises to free network operators from locked, proprietary hardware and software through a suite of technologies such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network-Function Virtualization (NFV), network underlays and overlays, and programmable devices. ONUG is an association of industry leaders dedicated to fostering open networking adoption in the wider community. The new ONUG Research Track, co-located with ONUG’s Spring meeting, provides a venue for dialogue between researchers and practitioners.
