Among the Cloud: Open Source NFV + SDN deployment

Panel discussion

Moderator: Neela Jacques

Panelists: Chris Price (OPNFV); Colin Dixon (ODL); Margaret Chiosi (AT&T); Alex Zhang (China Mobile)

Seven years after the launch of SDN and the development of OpenFlow, SDN and NFV are changing the networking landscape.
