  Use Cases Session
  09.30 Service Provider SDN: Lessons Learnt and Evolution  
Elisa Bellagamba, Ericsson Showing the results of customer lab-trials, and explaining how these fit into a Service Provider SDN vision. SDN Service Chaining is one of the key identified applications, which uses OpenFlow switching to dynamically chain network appliances like DPI, Firewall, VirusScan etc., in a much more effective way than with today's IP networks.

Elisa Bellagamba | Ericsson
  09.50 SDN based Network Architectures for Service Providers
Benefits and Challenges
Nicolai Leymann, Deutsche Telekom Providing a detailed view about the potential and challenges of SDN in combination with network virtualization from a services provider’s point of view. “Real world” use cases based on the existing requirements and network architecture are provided, including scenarios for virtualization of network functionalities (e.g. firewalling, warding against DDoS attacks, (virtual) ePC).

  10.10 SDN and Mobile Networks  
Azhar Sayeed, Cisco Flexibility and nimbleness is an absolute must to allow users to freely move between macro and fixed networks. SDN can provide dynamic policy and reconfiguration for this to happen.
Covering the role of SDN in the Mobile Networks both in EPC and the backhaul and discussing in depth the mobile use case and how SDN and virtualization can play a role for Mobile providers.

Azhar Sayeed | CISCO
  10.30 Carrier SDN with a Hybrid Control Plane: Use Cases and Proof Points  
    Demonstrating, with real-world uses cases, how Carrier SDN can be employed to extend infrastructure intelligence further towards the network edge and ultimately into the customer premise, leveraging cost-effective implementations of MPLS or non-MPLS devices in new reference architectures to reduce port counts and throughput demands on existing LSRs and LERs.

  Mobile Backhaul Session
  11.20 Wireless Meshed Networking for Small Cells Backhauling  
Paolo Volpato, Alcatel-Lucent Small cells are increasingly gaining popularity among operators because they represent a sort of “ultimate” answer to the need of ubiquitous coverage and capacity.

Paolo Volpato | Product Strategy Manager | Alcatel Lucent
SDN-based Hybrid Access
Discussing problem statement: what is SDN-based Hybrid Access and its value proposition?
Presenting case studies.

Dr. XiPeng Xiao | Huawei Technologies
  12.00 SDN Impact on Mobile Broadband Networks  
Discussing the ways in which the SDN concept and its architecture principles can complement cloud and Network Function Virtualization in mobile broadband networks and advance the transformation of the network architecture into a pure software infrastructure which is highly efficient and flexible.

Nurit Sprecher | Nokia Solutions and Networks
  12.30 LUNCH  
Jean-Marc Uzé, Juniper

  MPLS, SDN  & NFV for Enterprises Session
  14.00 Extending The Geographic Reach of a VPN Service  
Ron Bonica, Juniper Networks Describing the concept of VSDP and how it can be implemented based on Inter-provider Option B.  It describes how VSDPs can be used to provide a seamless VPN service across geographic regions. Potential deployment options, secure deployment procedures as well as the trust models will be discussed in detail.

Ron Bonica | Distinguished Engineer | Juniper NETWORKS
  14.20 Beyond the Data Centre: SDN & NFV in the Customer Premises  
How CSPs need adapt their engagement with the enterprise if they are to realise a shared vision for SDN & NFV.
How the programmable delivery of new services to the enterprise will enable CSPs to measurably reduce a major component of network TCO: that of introducing a new service. 
How network-edge and CPE routing technologies have evolved to become ‘SDN/NFV ready’.

Pravin Mirchandani | CMO | OneAccess
  Segment Routing Session
George Swallow, Cisco From Tag Switching to SDN and Segment Routing
MPLS: an Enduring Architecture

Covering the founding principles of MPLS that have allowed MPLS to evolve and morph in so many ways.  Exploring how separation of control and data, PCE, BGP-LS have combined to enable SDN control of MPLS via Segment Routing.

George Swallow

  15.00 Segment Routing: Update and Future Evolution  
Clarence Filsfils, Cisco By 2014, the first phase of the Segment Routing will be available. Providing an update on the product, the standardization process and most specifically focusing on the deployment use-cases it supports.
Introducing the future evolution of the technology and new use-cases that we want to support.

Clarence Filsfils | Cisco
  15.20 Fast Reroute Approach Using Segment Routing  
    Fast ReRoute protection is needed to complement network convergence when traffic restoration time requirements are high.
Several fast reroute solutions already exists for IP or MPLS networks but none is meeting all the operator’s expectations (coverage, simplicity, side effects …).
Detailing a new Fast Reroute approach using the flexibility of Segment Routing technology. Comparing it with existing Fast ReRoute solutions, both from a theoretical point of view and with simulations results on a real SP network topology.

Stephane Litkowski | Orange
  15.40 COFFEE BREAK  
Hannes Gredler, Juniper MPLS Label Advertisement in IGPs
Highlighting historical approaches to link-state routing using the notion of short, fixed size 'labels' and comparing them to the recent MPLS incarnations, particularly "Segment routing" and "IGP Label Advertisement".

Hannes Gredler | Distinguished Engineer |
Juniper Networks Inc.
  16.30 Segment Routing in Seamless MPLS Networks  
    SR as an alternative to LDP protocol to reduce the number of control planes in the domain.
SR used together with LDP to enhance the coverage of IP and LDP Fast-Reroute (FRR)
SR use to provide source routed paths to applications in domains of the network where the operator does not want or cannot operationalise the RSVP-TE protoctol.

Mustapha Aissaoui | Product Line Manager, IP Division | Alcatel-Lucent
  16.50 RSVP-TE for ECMP, traffic Engineering & Segment Routing  
    Segment Routing is emerging as an interesting mechanism to offer simplicity, scale and support for a wide array of applications. Discussing a use case for SR providing an insight into how and under what circumstances - carriers can deploy both these vehicles in enhancing network functionality and reducing operational complexity.

Vinod Joseph | Principal Architect for Advanced Technology Solutions |

  17.10 Source Label - MPLS Improvement  
    Why do we need MPLS Source Label
The concept of MPLS Source Label
The Data Plane processing
Source Label signaling (Capability negotiation and Source Label distribution)
