03 Dec RESEARCH PAPER: Fall 2015 ONUG Meeting Highlights

With over 600 attendees for the semi-annual meeting of the Open Networking User Group (ONUG), the Fall 2015 event increased the volume and the emphasis on open networking solutions. The emphasis began to change as more customers began proof of concepts (POCs) and are moving closer to using open networking in their production environments. The existing networking challenges that are driving open networking remain, but the complexity of making the move to open networking is still presenting difficulty as customers now have a much clearer understanding of the tactical challenges around implementation. Overwhelmingly the conversations at this ONUG were more substantial as customers appear to be moving from the investigative phase towards beginning the evaluations and proof of concept (POC) testing. The progression reflects an evolutionary approach to open networking and not a network revolution.
