  09.20 Efforts toward Interoperable OpenFlow  
    The Forwarding Abstractions Working Group (FAWG) is shoring up the foundation of the OpenFlow architecture by creating a framework that simultaneously allows for scalability, interoperability and practical development. This new optional framework will move OpenFlow beyond the “research” niche where some hope to isolate the technology.

  09.40 Improving Openflow Flow Set Up Times  
Faseela K, Ericsson Proposing a solution to dynamically detect increase in the flow set up time to a specific switch, depending on the network conditions as well as the geographical location of the switches, and then moving the switch to a different  controller domain if it will reduce the flow setup time.

  11.10 Real-Time Analytics and Policy Management for Software Defined Networking  
Cengiz Alaettinoglu, Packet Design North-bound SDN APIs allow creation of network-aware applications. Cloud and data center applications have successfully taken advantage of these APIs to provide seamless virtual machine mobility and elasticity. However, these applications are unaware of whether or not the underlying wide area network can provide acceptable performance. Introducing the concept of a network access broker (NAB), an analytics and policy management layer that provides this information.

  11.30 Effective Benchmark Test Methodology to Qualify SDN/OpenFlow Enabled Networks  
Cengiz Alaettinoglu, Packet Design While standards continue to formalize the openness of the SDN/NFV proposals and use cases, operators scramble to understand the operational readiness of these solutions
How SDN/NFV solutions impact the key performance indicators. How current network monitoring tools will be integrated into the emerging paradigm. Impact on north-south bound convergence in addition to network infrastructure convergence. Dependencies of control and forwarding plane convergence.

  14.00 SDN-based Traffic Management for IP/MPLS Networks: Reality, not Snake Oil  
John Evans, Cisco Demonstrating how a centralised network- and traffic-aware controller can be used in existing IP / MPLS networks to close the feedback loop between the network and applications and services that use the network, providing both dynamic SLA guarantees through admission control and providing real-time network- and traffic-aware service placement.

  14.30 Practical Considerations for IP and LDP Fast-Reroute  
Julian Lucek, Jun There have been many schemes proposed for IP and/or LDP Fast-Reroute over the past few years. Discussing the relative merits of several of these, focusing especially on ways of improving Loop-Free Alternate (LFA) coverage, including Remote LFA and coverage extension using RSVP LSPs.
