Vancouver as the backdrop for open source networking

Of course, no ONE Summit event would be complete without opening remarks from LF Networking’s own Arpit Joshipura. Arpit shared ideas about how networking has evolved — and continues to evolve — and how LF Networking is evolving alongside.

Telus discusses its participation in LF Networking

We were honored and privileged to hear Sana Tariq, Principal Technology Architect, and Steve Tannock, Director, Architecture (Platform Technology & Tools), of Telus discuss their personal journeys in open source as well as how Telus developed its open source strategy. Under the leadership of Ibrahim Gideon, CTO of Telus, Sana and Steve worked to help create their Open Source Project Office and to help guide its open source strategy. In doing so, Telus is signalling that it is looking to open source to help it deliver valuable innovative services to its customers and as a way to solidify its position as a leader in open source in the Telecommunications market.

ODL 10-year anniversaryInaugural ONE Summit Regional Day

Robert Varga, CTO of, has been involved in Open Daylight since its inception 10 years ago and has seen the ebb and flow of open source networking development. He recounted ODL’s growing pains, how it came to be one of the most important software-defined networking projects, and how it influenced the networking industry over its many releases. Today ODL continues to be a commercially available SDN: Verizon uses ODL as its directional controller, and it is actively supported by Pantheon.TECH and other vendors.

The 5G SBP is an infrastructure for global communications providers and enterprises that require a complete solution that includes high-bandwidth, low-latency, scalable, and cost-effective open source networking infrastructure. Mudassar Ahmed, Principal Cloud & Cybersecurity Architect at Mitre, discussed the 5G Super Blueprint’s ability to meet the needs of these stakeholders and what’s in store for the future.
