- The network is for passing packets between two points in a complex network graph.
- Everything else is done in the application and networkers need to become application aware.
- Virtual machines and virtual switches are in a stage of change and confusion but ultimately will converge on a single method of configuration and usage.
- Will networking be actively interdicting traffic flows or will they be over the top
- Is it possible to map OpenFlow to Tag Based networks.
- moving packets in a complex network
- MPLS, BGP and tagging architectures make sense in the WAN
- Networking is a path between two points in a [complex graph]
- In a world of point solutions, the network could be used to organise these service chains. But long term the applications will self-organise and part of the development process.
- Are there too many virtual switching platforms and how will the market shake out.
- The impacts of IOT on networking and application selection.
- The non-future of IP Multicast & QoS
