An Introduction to FD.io’s VPP
The presentation will provide you with an introduction to FD.io’s VPP (Vector Packet Processing) technology, and help you understand how VPP stands out from other packet processing alternatives for commodity CPUs. Gary will explain why Cisco’s mobility team chose to adopt this technology, how it helps to solve their problems, and conclude by offering some tips for organizations considering the use of VPP in their own solutions.

Programming the Network with SRv6
Kyler’s presentation will include an exploration of the concepts of the new and emerging SRv6 technology, and will discuss the key features of SRv6 and how they can be used to program a network, engineer the flow of traffic, and integrate into service-chaining with NFV. This presentation will include a demo on some of these features.
