Closing Panel Discussion: What Happened to Open Networking?

 

Abstract: SDN and NFV are moving into the market, and even being talked about in marketing pitches. But proprietary platforms still rule. Meanwhile, standards are finding new relevance and adoption, as much of Monday’s Multi-Player Workshop demonstrated. Open source? Not so much. Could open APIs be the answer?
