Innovation at the Waist

Olaf Kolkman, NLnetLabs

The Internet allows for permission-less innovation; a property brought by the common IP substrate. Innovations at the application layer happen at astonishing rate, innovations at the network layer are a little less trivial but happening. But why is innovation at the waist of the hourglass so difficult.

In this presentation we briefly look at the social aspects of innovation and consider which buttons to push and dials to turn, in order to push the needle for IPv6 deployment.

Seeing The Past, Present and Future: Macro Trends in Networking and the Role of Software Defined Networking

David Meyer, Brocade

The past few years have seen the desire on the part of both providers and consumers of network technology to bring the same agility, innovation, and economics curves that we see in Information Technology (IT) to the network domain. This talk examines a few of the "macro trends" that are reshaping the network technology landscape and the role Software Defined Networking plays in addressing these trends.

A High End Routing Platform for Core and Edge Applications Based on Chip To Chip Optical Interconnect

Kobi Hasharoni, Compass EOS

The bandwidth of core and edge routers is continuously growing as the demand for telecom, datacom and datacenter services is increasing at an annual rate of about 40%. Concurrently, there is also a continuous increase in the power consumption of ICT services which amounts today to about 2% of the total power supply. In order to reduce power consumption and concurrently provide the required bandwidth out of telecom devices, a transition to photonic-based routers becomes mandatory. In the presentation, we will present the chip to chip interconnection problem and how parallel optical links can solve the problem while reducing the router power, cost and size.
