Open Networking Innovation Forum (ONIF) is an invitation-only think tank, gathering an elite group of open networking visionaries, thought leaders and innovators in an intimate setting for valuable dialogue about the state of open networking (successes, hurdles, things to look out for in planning, picking and deploying SDN/NFV solutions), opportunities and challenges, accelerating adoption and more.

The event will be focused on group discussions with discussion topics crowdsourced and facilitated by attendees for more valuable dialogue and accelerated innovation.

ONIF 2018 will be held Tuesday, March 27th at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown Hotel, beginning at 8:30 am and ending mid-afternoon to allow attendees the opportunity join the Open Networking Summit keynotes. An evening reception for ONIF attendees, as well as ONS speakers and media, will be held at the end of the day, from 6:30-9:30 pm at the GRAMMY Museum.
