Software Defined Networking (SDN) is transforming the world of networking as cloud computing has transformed the worlds of compute and storage. Cisco DevNet offers three platforms that can be used independently or combined to create powerful next generation applications.


  1. OpenDaylight (ODL) is a highly available, modular, extensible, scalable and multi-protocol controller infrastructure built for SDN deployments on modern heterogeneous multi-vendor networks. It provides a model-driven service abstraction platform that allows users to write apps that easily work across a wide variety of hardware and southbound protocols. NeXt UI toolkit is an HTML5/JavaScript based toolkit for network web applications. NeXt provides high performance framework and network centric topology components that enable you to build information rich yet intuitive interactive network topology renderings. Topology visualization is a primary focus of the ODL community, and the NeXt UI toolkit was recently accepted as an official project for Beryllium, the next release of ODL. The workshop will show you how you can leverage NeXt to create multiple types of topologies (single layer/single area, multi-area, multi-domain, multi-layer, and multi-slicing) for complex networks including the entire internet.
  2. EIoT is a Power-Over-Ethernet (PoE) USB to ethernet adapter that allows simple Python scripting to pull information from enterprise sensors across the network. The workshop will show you have to access many types of USB sensors and devices via the network.
  3. Cisco Tropo exposes a cloud API for creating applications that use phone calls, voice recognition or text messages. We will introduce you to its easy-to-learn, easy-to-implement scripting environment designed for creating a wide variety of communications applications.
