Topic 2 - For anyone that isn’t a network-centric person, what is the Open Daylight Project?
Topic 3 - Where is the traction for Controller-Based networking today? Is it a market segment (size), or a vertical market, or a few early use-cases (WAN, Wireless, Data Center)?
Topic 4 - OpenStack Neutron, Open vSwitch, Openflow, Cisco ACI, VMware NSX, OVSdb - Where do all these things interconnect with Open Daylight?
Topic 5 - We know that vendors are heavily involved with ODL, but what is the customer involvement? What about testing agencies for interop (eg. CableLabs, UNH, etc.)?
