From Bandwidth-on-Demand to Programmability

Bandwidth on demand is a concept that the research and industry folks have been working on for a decade, with many papers, prototypes and demonstrations and unfortunately, without many commercially deployed successes. In retrospect, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is actually not only doing BoD but creating entire virtual networks on demand. Why is that going to succeed while BoD still follows the adoption curve? This talk will briefly go over the history of BoD, discuss some of the challenges that have slowed down the adoption of BoD and talk about what we should keep in mind while enabling the 'programmability of networking' future.
