Open Networking Foundation and ONUG Announce Partnership

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and the Open Networking User Group (ONUG) announced a partnership allowing input from ONUG’s end-user community to help shape the future of the SDN movement.

As part of this collaboration, ONF is supporting ONUG Fall 2013, a two-day event Oct. 29-30 in New York City. The event includes the ONUG Academy, a day of tutorials and workshops open to the industry, and the ONUG Conference, which will include user case studies, interactive business discussions, and networking opportunities for IT leaders. Rob Sherwood, chair of the ONF Architecture Framework Working Group, will present a tutorial on “Integrating OpenFlow and OpenStack” at the ONUG Academy.

“ONUG is a community of IT executives learning and sharing open networking experiences with peers in a highly interactive environment,” said Nick Lippis, co-founder and vice chairman of the Open Networking User Group. “The ONUG Board is comprised of IT executives focused on both the business and technology drivers involved in deploying open networking solutions. This industry partnership further validates the importance of the user’s voice and offers a supportive community for ONUG members to openly and candidly discuss their market requirements with the industry at large.”
