Professor Nick McKeown

Professor McKeown's group at Stanford helped invent Software Defined Networking - SDN, a technology which will revolutionize computer networks.  In his interview with KZSU, Professor McKeown described how SDN started, its future and the many opportunities that exist for entrepreneurs and innovators in this field.   The SDN architecture decouples network control and forwarding functions, making network control directly programmable and allowing the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services. The OpenFlow® protocol is a foundational element for building SDN solutions.  To find out more about SDN at Stanford, please visit their website and to find out more about Open Network Lab please click here.

Professor McKeown's interview was broadcast on KZSU in May, 2014 and is available from this link.
