Network Virtualization 101

If you keep hearing network virtualization buzzwords, like SDN & NFV, at IT conferences (or from your colleagues) and simply have no clue what they mean, and even less so what their concepts or benefits are, join us in learning the very basics!

In order to keep this session as understandable as possible for beginners of any level the audience is only just expected to know the very basics of (traditional) networking.

Where real world examples are needed, popular open source software such as OpenStack (cloud) or MidoNet (SDN) will be used.
