CohesiveFT Sponsors, Speaks at First Software-Defined Networking Summit

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - Nov 1, 2012 - CohesiveFT, a leader in enterprise application-to-cloud migration, is participating in IIR's first-ever Software Defined Networking (SDN) Summit at London's Canary Wharf, November 13th - 14th. In addition to CohesiveFT's sponsorship of the event, CohesiveFT's CEO, Patrick Kerpan, will join a panel discussion and deliver a presentation on the evolution of SDN and the OpenFlow standard.

Software Defined Networking is a new approach to networking, and it may be viewed as part of a wave of innovation that has seen cloud computing and virtualization transform servers and storage. By decoupling network control from hardware, SDN is expected to disrupt the traditional networking space and significantly improve network performance, flexibility and manageability. According to IDC, the SDN market will grow from $168 million in 2013 to over $2 billion by 2016.

CohesiveFT has been driving forward Software Defined Networking since 2008, when the company released the first iteration of its flagship product, VNS3. Now in its 3.0 version, VNS3 is the only application-controlled SDN product on the market, meaning that enterprises can use the integration, governance and security features of VNS3 SDN from their application layer instead of the virtual or physical infrastructure layers.

"SDN and OpenFlow have brought much needed attention to virtual networking," said CohesiveFT CEO Patrick Kerpan. "At the SDN Summit, I look forward to sharing CohesiveFT's insights from our customer use-cases around Software Defined Networking extending the data center into the cloud securely, while retaining full network control."

CohesiveFT's participation in the first-ever SDN Summit includes:

- Patrick Kerpan will join a panel discussion entitled "Is OpenFlow driving SDNs or will SDNs drive OpenFlow?" on Tuesday November 13th at 3:15pm.

- The next day, on Wednesday November 14th at 10:20am, Kerpan will deliver a presentation on the evolution of the concepts of the OpenFlow standard and SDN, entitled "OpenFlow is Software Defined Networking; Software Defined Networking is Not Only OpenFlow."

The SDN Summit will gather attendees from service providers, technology vendors and IT vendors to discuss and debate how Software Defined Networking can decrease network costs and simplify the introduction of new services by centralizing switch and router intelligence.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
In past @ThingsExpo presentations, Joseph di Paolantonio has explored how various Internet of Things (IoT) and data management and analytics (DMA) solution spaces will come together as sensor analytics ecosystems.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
