The Virtual Symposium series continues the discussion with Cisco and Network Programmability. Following the recent announcements from Cisco on OnePK & supporting SDN technologies, there is still much to discuss about how the use of APIs to configure Cisco IOS will work and what will be the impact on the how networking will change in the future.
Let me give you this scenario:
You want to change the way that traffic flows in your network. It needs to be driven by an application when a specific event occurs. OnePK allows you to use an API to inject a new route into the RIB of your Cisco ASR9000 as a “A” or application route. You already have a configuration that redistributes “Application routes” into the BGP RIB and then is announced to BGP peers in your MPLS core.
If that idea piques your interest then we should be getting
The standard Symposium panel consists of Omar Sultan from Cisco, Greg Ferro (EtherealMind), Stephen Foskett (Tech Field Day), and Ivan Pepelnjack (ipSpace), then for each event we add voices who are specialist in the fields. The format is open and flowing discussion where we can air a solid discussion.
Cisco Virtual Symposium 3: Network Programmability and SDN

- Register Now and you can join in the live discussion
Previously we recorded the Cisco Virtual Symposium on SDN Recorded at CLUS 2012 where we discussed the impact of SDN on networking in a roundtable. This event will focus on programmability and how to make use of it.
