A revolution in networking is underway. Networks are becoming more flexible, more intelligent, more cost-effec- tive, more capable, and more important than ever before. Bandwidth on demand promises to bring network pricing models in line with the pay-per-use models embracing the cloud. Software-defined networks--including specific approaches such as OpenFlow—offer unprecedented user control to fine levels of granularity, while dramatically reducing networking costs. Network-as-a-service, including specific initiatives such as Quantum, will enable this new intelligence and flexibility to be accessed programmatically, enabling flexible, application-aware networking to become a reality. In this must- see session, a panel of recognized industry thought leaders from Gartner, NTT America, TW Telecom and Ericsson will discuss this next disruptive wave of networking, addressing trends, shifting market needs, emerging technologies, and the rapidly changing ecosystem.

Moderator:
Bob Gill, Research Director, Gartner

Michael Wheeler, EVP of IP Global Network, NTT America
John Bonczek, VP, Service Provider Markets, Telx
