PANTHEON.tech was part of the Open Networking User Group (ONUG) 2017 in New York. The conference were held from October 17th, until the 18th.
ONUG Highlights & Insights
ONUG belongs to the group of conferences rather smaller in size, but surely not in importance. This year it took place in New York. The Big Apple is a truly interesting place and so was the conference. This event was a combination of trade show and a panel discussion.
Pantheon Technologies did not actively participate in the trade show part this time, as our focus was more on potential business hunting.
ONUG is a 2-day event fully packed with big names on stage, as part of panel discussions, and a good selection of vendors, community leaders, service and solution providers.
The conference includes keynotes from IT business enterprise leaders as they address their open software-defined cloud-based infrastructure journeys, updates from the Working Group Initiative members, hands-on tutorials and interactive labs, real world use cases, proof of concept demonstrations and a vendor technology showcase.
The goal of all ONUG events and initiatives is to bring together the full IT community, allow IT business leaders to:
- learn from peers
- make informed open infrastructure deployment decisions
- open up a dialogue between the vendor and user communities, in order to collectively drive open infrastructure
We are looking forward to ONUG 2018
For Pantheon Technologies, this was a good opportunity to understand current networking needs of service providers, enterprises and vendors. This helps us to improve promoting Pantheon even better in the field of our expertise, in customized software development. ONUG clearly showed, that service providers are heading more and more towards SD-WAN solutions.
We have discussed our expertise in SDN and NFV with almost all of the ONUG participants. We have also found several potential partners to explore this exciting business with. Software Defined Networking is not only a buzzword anymore, it’s been well established and the market is very competitive, especially in the US territory.
That is why we at Pantheon Technologies needs to be on top of it.
