SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 27 — Ethernet Technology Summit, a premier Silicon Valley conference focused on the use of Ethernet throughout networking spaces, occurs April 2-4 at the Santa Clara Marriott Hotel. Key topics this year include software-defined networking (SDN) and OpenFlow, 40/100/400 GbE, convergence, cloud computing, virtualization, big data, and high-performance networks.
Important keynotes will be presented by:
There will also be two days of in-depth SDN/Open Flow seminars, full day forums on 10/40/400 GbE and Convergence on Ethernet, and half-day forums on Ethernet in Data Centers, Ethernet and Virtualization, and Ethernet and Cloud Computing, as well as exhibits, a celebration of Ethernet's 40th anniversary, and the IT Brand Pulse awards (voted on by major data center end users).
"Ethernet keeps advancing, and the Ethernet Technology Summit continues to be the best place to track what is happening in the industry," said Conference Chair and Cisco Systems Fellow Claudio DeSanti. "This year we have expanded the seminar on software-defined networking (SDN) and OpenFlow to two days and have added sessions on accelerating big data, developing top-performance Ethernet networks, and next-generation power and cooling."
Sessions in the SDN/OpenFlow seminars cover network architecture, OpenFlow, carrier networks, applications, software, and implementations. Panels deal with end user perspectives and future trends. Speakers represent such industry leaders as Intel, Cisco, Broadcom, Dell, IBM, HP, Spirent, Brocade, Big Switch Networks, Orange France Telecom, and many others.
Other key sessions include a VC Forum with leading VCs focused on SDN startups, a market research session with major analysts, the popular Beer Pizza session with access to experts on a one-on-one informal basis, and coverage of Carrier Ethernet, lost packets, and next-generation power and cooling.
About the Ethernet Technology Summit
Ethernet Technology Summit focuses on the use of Ethernet throughout the networking space. This includes the emergence of 10-Gigabit Ethernet as a key LAN technology on the desktop and in data centers. It also covers the 40-Gigabit and 100-Gigabit Ethernet standards and standards efforts beyond 100GbE. Furthermore, it includes the use of Ethernet as a carrier backbone and transport method, as well as in storage applications. Other topics of interest include virtualization, cloud computing, and Data Center Ethernet. The Summit offers keynotes, seminars, forums, tutorials, an expert table session, exhibits, and receptions with the aim of presenting expert speakers and encouraging networking and the flow of information.
