Want to learn how the nuts and bolts (read various open source components) of Software defined networking and Network Function Virtualization work in the new landscape of scalable, agile and white box networking world? 

This one-day lab will have deep-dive sessions and hands on labs led by experts.  We have two parallel tracks here. While Track 1 focuses  on  how to use underlying infrastructure more effectively in a baremetal and VM environment using Open Stack, track 2 focuses on  packet processing aspect of Virtual network functions on bare metal and container environment.
