OpenDaylight Project
As OpenDaylight's executive director, Nicolas “Neela” Jacques works with the OpenDaylight community to advance SDN and NFV with a developer-driven open source platform for products and technologies that expand the intelligence, programmability and performance of network infrastructures. He oversees and provides guidance for all aspects of the project, from governance and technology to community and marketing and reports to the OpenDaylight board of directors.
