IEEE 802/IETF Data Center Workshop – Bangkok, 2018-11-10

In November 2018, the IEEE 802 and IETF are meeting on consecutive weeks at the same hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. This fortuitous schedule allows a unique opportunity to assemble key technologists from both organizations to discuss and explore new and developing standardization activities for the Data Center environment. The IEEE 802/IETF Data Center Workshop of 10 November 2018 is intended to act as a catalyst for future collaboration between the two organizations with respect to Data Center technologies, with an emphasis on congestion management, load-balancing, routing, and simplified management.

The workshop is scheduled for Saturday 10 November from 13:30 – 17:30 at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park (Thai Chitlada Room #2, on the 2nd Floor). There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. The online registration allows you to also register for the DetNet – TSN joint session the following day.

Draft minutes from the workshop are available online here: draft minutes.  For more information, or to offer your follow-up participation, please contact Paul Congdon.
