The Packet Pushers will be at the Open Networking User Group fall gathering at the New York University Kimmel Center in Manhattan, November 4 & 5, 2015. We’ll be attending most of the open sessions, chatting with real people, and doing some live blogging.
If you haven’t registered for ONUG yet, you can get 25% off using code Packet25.
If you have no idea why you’d want to attend an ONUG conference, the big idea is to listen to presentations from people who are investing in open networking technologies. ONUG puts open networking ideas to the test, doing proof of concept bake offs, demonstrating what works and what doesn’t. Use cases for SDN and NFV come to light, with SD-WAN being a recent hot topic that ONUG has taken on.
ONUG is a conference worth going to if you want to see where networking is going as opposed to where it’s been. Many end users with a vested interest in seeing networking change for the better get together at ONUG to discuss their progress. There’s also good discussion by industry analysts who, if past experience is any indicator, tend to be rather blunt in their opinions.
If I’ve piqued your interest but you’re still unsure, take a look at the ONUG Fall Agenda. That’s a good idea of the content you’ll get at the event. Dr. Douglas Comer who recorded what will probably be 2015’s most downloaded Weekly Podcast #255 with Greg will be on stage at the ONUG Great Debate on November 4th, for instance.
Even if you’re not going to ONUG, you might want to catch Greg and me recording a live show in NYC with Viptela customers about their SD-WAN deployments on November 4 @ 7pm. Viptela’s hosting the event, so it costs you nothing. Show up, eat great food, chat with us and people doing SD-WAN in real life. Register here so the venue knows how many appetizers to make.
