Topic 1 - Is the network industry as confused / confusing at seems?
  • OpenDaylight vs. Foglight
  • Nicira OpenFlow vs. no-OpenFlow vs. ovsDB vs. Network Virtualization
  • VXLAN
  • SDN vs. Network Virtualization
Topic 2 - Is this a L4-L7 game vs. L2-L3? Will them be appliances/vApps, or bundled?
Topic 3 - What are the interesting new use-cases that might be valuable for this new network technology?
Topic 4 - Will anyone except the largest web-scale companies figure out the separation of HW + SW (eg. whitebox network gear + 3rd-party OS)?


Topic 5 - What are you teaching people these days?
