ESnet's Inder Monga Presents at International Network Architects Workshop

November 21, 2012

Inder Monga, ESnet’s Chief Technologist, gave a presentation on software-defined networking at TERENA’s first Network Architects Workshop held Nov. 21-22 in Copenhagen. Software-defined networking, or SDN, is an emerging field in which software is used to automatically configure and control the various layers of the network to improve data transfers. ESnet has been conducting localized tests to demonstrate the value of SDN for production networking.

The workshop, which was attended by 40 participants from 20 different organizations, provided a forum at which network designers and deployers shared their experiences and recommendations in building next-generation research and education networks. TERENA, which sponsored the workshop, is the Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association.
