FAUCET 2017 conference: save the date
FAUCET is an open source SDN/OpenFlow controller for experimental and enterprise networks, running in production at multiple sites and supported by multiple hardware vendors.
The WAND network research group at the University of Waikato in New Zealand, Google, ESnet and LBLNet, would like to announce the first FAUCET conference, to be held at LBL in Berkeley, CA, 19th and 20th of October 2017.
Main conference: 19th and 20th October 2017
PlugFest: 18th October 2017
Location: LBL, Berkeley, CA USA
The conference will be for FAUCET users, operators and developers - those interested in using SDN in production. It will feature an in depth workshop on building and operating production enterprise SDN networks, given by Brad Cowie from the WAND network research group, and network infrastructure for the conference will be powered by FAUCET itself.
It will include also workshops on FAUCET development, consultation on future architecture and features, including the gNMI protocol for configuration and telemetry, and network security.
The conference will be preceded by a FAUCET PlugFest on the 18th of October for vendors to test interoperability and compatibility. The PlugFest network will remain in place for the main conference, for attendees to have an opportunity to see and use different switching platforms.
The date and location are set, and registration will be open August 2017. We will announce further details on the faucet-users group - please stay tuned there for updates.
Hope to see you there,
