Keynote: Future Shock: The New Normal - Kelly Herrell, SVP & GM, Software Networking Business Unit, Brocade
In just over two years ODL has made history, overcoming the intense initial skepticism of those fearful of its vendor-sponsored origins and the broad scope of intent.  In record time ODL has evolved into a rapidly advancing and thriving community that has formalized the role of open-source in New IP architectures and has already earned its first large-scale production deployments. During this presentation, Kelly Herrell will examine how the next two years will likely produce a wave of innovation that will illustrate the true creative disruption of the industry.
