Network Architect

Brielle Day

Nick McKeown is building the Internet of tomorrow.


McKeown is known for developing software-defined networking (SDN), which challenged the vertically integrated approach to the switch-and-router design of the past 20 years. At Stanford University, he leads a research group—including SDN’s inventor, Martin Casado—focused on SDN and shaping the architecture for the Internet of the future. He will be a plenary speaker at OFC/NFOEC 2013, 17-21 March in Anaheim, Calif., U.S.A.
