The term Software Defined Networking (SDN) was originally coined in 2008 to describe networking with OpenFlow.  Back then, the assumption was that an open protocol would connect centralized controllers to OpenFlow switches from different vendors.  This allowed operators to deploy hardware from different vendors and enable innovation in computer networks.  In the six years that have passed, SDN as an architecture has seen widespread adoption.  However few if any systems follow the originally envisioned OpenFlow deployment model.  In this talk, we look at how SDN is actually deployed, why the original OpenFlow model has seen little adoption and how Open Source and bare metal switches are about to transform deployment models again.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) envisions and promises to change the service provider landscape and has emerged as one of one of todayâ??s significant trends.  Although less than two years old, NFV has garnered the industryâ??s full attention and support.  Moving swiftly, a number of key accomplishments have already taken place, and a lot more work is currently under way within ETSI NFV while we are embarking on its future phase.  Various proofs-of-concepts (ranging from vEPC to vCPE, vIMS and vCDN) are being developed while issues such as open source and SDN are becoming key ingredients as the can play a pivotal role.
