Mini-Conference Keynote

Managing Network Devices with Redfish and YANG (SLIDES)

For CNSM 2016, the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) introduced the Redfish® standard, as a modern RESTful interface, for managing compute, storage.  The DMTF released the Redfish models for compute and SNIA (Storage Network Industry Association) released the models for networked storage.  For networking, the DMTF wanted to use the immense body of work represented in the YANG models.  The DMTF’s plan was to programmatically convert YANG models into Redfish models.  This goal was presented at IETF 98.  DMTF has recently released the first set of Redfish manageability models for managing an Ethernet switch, as work-in-progress.

This presentation will describe the DMTF’s strategy and progress in creating manageability models for network devices.  The present will also present the additions to Redfish’s open source tool-chain available to researchers for extending Redfish to manage additional network and services.

Main-Conference Keynote Session 3

Networking Grand Challenges for 5G/IoT Advanced Applications and Platforms in US Ignite in 5G/IoT era

Dr. Glenn Ricart, US Ignite, Founder and CTO, USA

Glenn Ricart brings forty years of innovation in computer networking and related fields to US Ignite.  Glenn is an Internet pioneer who implemented the first Inter-net interconnection point (the FIX in College Park, Maryland) and was recognized for this achievement by being inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame in August 2013.  In one of his previous roles where he was academic CIO at the University of Maryland, his campus implemented the first institution-wide TCP/IP (Internet) network in 1983 using low-cost PDP-11 routers (“Fuzballs”) with software devised at the University of Maryland.  Glenn was principal investigator of SURAnet, the first regional TCP/IP (Internet) network of academic and commercial institutions.  Glenn’s formal education includes degrees from Case Institute of Technology and Case Western Reserve University, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science is from the University of Maryland, College Park.  His inventions have resulted in more than a dozen patents.  Dr. Ricart has served on the boards of three public companies, CACI, the SCO Organization, and First USA Financial Services, in addition to numerous non-profits
