TMC has added a special pre-conference workshop to their popular ITEXPO program designed to provide some
clarity to businesses and service providers investing in or investigating Software Defined Networking (SDN).

The event will be held as a pre-conference workshop on Tuesday, January 29th beginning at 12:00 noon during
TMC’s ITEXPO Miami 2013 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. ITEXPO takes place January 30th-February 1st.
       
Your ITEXPO registration includes admission to the SDN Zone Workshop, but space is limited. Click here to RSVP 
to reserve your seat at the SDN Zone Workshop.

Sessions at SDN Zone address both basic and advanced topics related to deploying an SDN solution:
Hot Topics:
Software-Defined Networking 101
Join an interactive discussion in which TMC’s Paula Bernier asks SDN experts the questions you need to know about the 
software-defined network, including what it is, what components it involves, what benefits that enables for whom, and
what to expect in the SDN realm going forward.
Presented by: ACG Research, Alcatel-Lucent, Infinera, TMC
SDN in the Enterprise Data Center
This session will explore enterprise and data center applications of SDN
Presented by: Woodside Capital, ACG Research, Plexxi, TMC

The Role of SDN in Network Evolution
While SDN is based on a completely new vision of networking, data center operators, enterprises and service providers 
will most certainly not be replacing their networks entirely to jump on the SDN bandwagon. This session will offer an
opportunity to hear from the big names in networking, what they’re doing to address SDN, and how they see this new
technology tying into existing networks.

SDN Roundup
This session will provide a round-up of what we learned about SDN today and other noteworthy information 
about SDN, like market forecasts.
Presented by: TMC, ACG Research, Woodside Capital
According to TMC CEO Rich Tehrani, “Software-defined networking is considered by many to be one of the most 
important, and potentially disruptive, developments in networking since the rise of the Internet.”
       
“To date, networks and connectivity have come first, and applications have followed. SDN turns this model on its head, 
approaching networking from an apps-first standpoint,” Tehrani explained.
       
In this SDN pre conference at ITEXPO Miami, you will get: 
          • Detailed overview of SDN
          • Examination of the technologies and components involved in SDN
          • Summary of the use cases of SDN
          • Comparison of the players involved in moving SDN forward
          • Expert analysis on what SDN could mean for networking as we know it.
