Speaker: Han Yang, Product Manager, Marketing, Cisco Systems
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Venue: Hall 8.0, Room B2

Building a cloud network within a data center and extending it to the public cloud requires simplification, scaling, and convergence. Come to this session for an in-depth look at how the Cisco Nexus 1000V Switch integrates virtual, physical, and cloud networking as a single unified network. In fact, Cisco is simplifying, scaling, and extending VXLAN from the virtual into the physical network with a full portfolio of virtualized network services. In addition, Cisco is providing orchestration for both virtual and physical infrastructures.

Software Defined Networking - Approaches to Network Virtualization

Speaker: Balaji Sivasubramanian, Director, Product Marketing,Cisco Systems
Date and Time: Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Venue: Hall 8.0, Room C3


Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a major trend in the industry, focusing on how networks are built and managed. One of primary uses for SND is in network virtualization. This promises to solve networking challenges around agility, resource utilization, and on-demand cloud deployments for enterprise data centers and cloud providers.

The session will cover the following topics

  • Approaches to SDN, and specifically, network virtualization
  • Requirements of network virtualization
  • End-to-end visibility and troubleshooting
  • Consistent application performance
  • Management of virtual and physical resources as a pool
