Andrew Coward, VP Service Provider Strategy, Brocade

In the carrier space, service providers need instructions as well as components for SDN. Just having software is not adequate, you have to provision it and allow customers to configure it to their needs. Unlike previous standards-driven approaches, the way to move forward today is to write code, then publish it to the open source community or feature it within a solution, with the written standards following. Open Daylight is a perfect example of this "show me" rather than "tell me" approach that is defining the new networking landscape.
