Open Source Networking Days (OSN Days) are regional events where people who are passionate about network transformation through open source come together. This is the Ottawa event in the OSN Days North America tour, where presentations will be given on the practical applications and the latest innovations from the Linux Foundation networking projects: DPDK,, ONAP, OpenDaylight, OPNFV, PNDA, and SNAS, as well as other open source initiatives. OSN Days provide an opportunity to meet face to face with other open networking enthusiasts in the region, share ideas and insights, and work collaboratively to overcome the challenges of Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Management and Orchestration (MANO), cloud, data analytics, and the acceleration of underlying infrastructures.
