2nd Biannual Meeting of ANSP - BMA2

The Internet evolution guides itself towards the development of SDN – Software Defined Networking. This solution has been studied by many network scientists and developed by many manufacturers worldwide, in order to give more agility to the Internet, and also aiming the cost-cut by bit transmitted and to offer more security to all its users.

The use of centralizing elements with more network engineer activity concentration and traffic control will provide a fresh breath to the Internet, not just in terms of availability but also security and low costs. In addition, the systems will become more independent from specific manufacturers, opening the opportunity to reduce the distance between producing countries and the non-producing of network equipment.

The OpenFlow technology, SDN’s flagship, enables virtualization, optimization and aggregation and reallocates resources efficiently and securely. For this reason it deserves the attention of all entities that work with the study and offer of computer network services, especially in the academic field.

In such environment, ANSP takes the responsibility to promote in its 2nd Biannual Meeting – BMA2 – courses, debates and experience exchange in OpenFlow, because certainly this technology allows significant advances, even in countries or companies that do not master completely the manufacturing of routers and switches, but that are able to develop software.

The BMA2 will promote OpenFlow training and demonstration to streamline the introduction and disclosure in the Brazilian networks. Once more we face a moment that will bring us closer, scientifically and technologically, to what exists of more advanced in the comprehensive, fascinating, challenging and volatile universe of the Internet.

When thinking about Future Internet, it is impossible not to open and encourage the use of this space to the scientific community and companies of São Paulo, showing what it has been done and what has been discussed, mostly here in Brazil, and the need for training, that comes with this possibility.

In particular, it is proposed that this meeting discuss at least the following topics:




  1. OpenFlow and other technologies for software defined networks por software.
  2. Hybrid networks that mix packet switching, switching circuits and switching flows, as well as mixing optical networks, metallic networks, and wireless networks.
  3. Green and clean networks, with low consumption of energy, as well as recycling of used equipment in networks.
  4. Distributed computing, including, but not restricted to, cloud computing.


  1. Needs of scientific projects in the State of São Paulo.
  2. Collaboration in the shared networks of the State of São Paulo, as COMEP network and the KYATERA project.
  3. ANSP Ecosystem.

The ANSP Ecosystem users are invited to propose other themes of their own interest.  The Future Internet requires robust operations and reliable services of provisioning, monitoring and diagnostic of systems dynamically built by networks and multiple computers. It is the typical challenge the research and development community of São Paulo knows how to face.
