At Interop, Vello demonstrated a use case for SDN involving a Vello SDN controller using OpenFlow to "talk to" optical systems as well as packet switches. This application, Remote Data Replication Manager, offers a practical solution for data replication of value to enterprises today, and unlike much of the talk about SDN, enterprise customers can see the value of this immediately.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
