Blockchain, AKA distributed ledger technology, is one of the hottest top of mind topics in our industry. There are several industry consortia, projects, and startups focused on this technology. To date, most of the discussions are about the software and applications used to make it happen. One essential element is often left out of the discussions: the network.
In this session our speaker will present a high level overview of blockchain/distributed ledger technology and then present ideas for the network that will be used. The speaker will discuss an idea for blockchain networks, using an open daylight software defined networking (SDN) controller in conjucntion with a z Systems based Hyperledger blockchain implementation.-Stephen Guendert-Brocade Communications Systems
