OpenDaylight Project Hosts 2016 India Forum

Call for Papers and Registration Now Open for November Event

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - July 06, 2016) - The OpenDaylight Project, the networking industry's largest open source project focused on Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), today announced the second OpenDaylight India Forum taking place November 16-17 in Bengaluru. The Forum will facilitate local collaboration among the networking industry on the OpenDaylight SDN platform and will serve as an opportunity for users to connect directly with other developers integrating the platform directly into their networks.

The two-day forum, open to participants of all levels of experience from beginners to advanced veterans, includes technical presentations on the latest version of OpenDaylight, Beryllium, as well as ongoing design and development discussion related to the next platform release, Boron. The event also presents an opportunity to engage and collaborate with local users, developers, and open source communities for cross-pollination of ideas and technologies. Registration for OpenDaylight Forum India is open and speaking submissions are being accepted through August 3.

"We're seeing strong growth for ODL all around the world with India continuing to be one of our most robust and vibrant communities," said Neela Jacques, executive director of OpenDaylight. "The OpenDaylight India Forum is unique as it brings together top talent from across the country's broad range of local and global actors who are actively working together to advance open networking."

Last year's sold-out event in Bengaluru brought together many OpenDaylight User Group (ODLUG) leaders, developers, and students interested in learning more about OpenDaylight. Popular tracks from last year included OpenDaylight application development, Service Function Chaining and the Future of Path Computation Element (PCE). Programming for this year's event is still underway.
