Learn about the future of data center network design


June 13, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Cumulus Networks is hosting a free networking design workshop specifically geared towards educating I&O professionals on how to introduce EVPN, VXLAN, and other technologies into their data center networks. Reserve your spot today. 

Not a sales pitch! Come prepared for a collaborative session where you can whiteboard and brainstorm with experts and former TAC escalation engineers, Pete Lumbis and Rama Darbha. They will review current network designs and various ways you can introduce new technologies into existing environments — without disruption and with full interoperability. 


  • Designing networks with BGP-EVPN and VXLAN
  • Physical network design for OpenStack environments
  • Building networks to support container workloads, including Docker Swarm and Kubernetes

This event will be held at the Castle Hotel, near the Orange County Convention Center. 

We hope to see you there! Fill out the form on the right to sign up. 


Pete Lumbis is a Technical Marketing Engineer where he helps customers design and automate next generation networks. He is CCIE Routing and Switching #28677 and CCDE 2012::3. Before Cumulus Networks Pete was a member of the global escalation team for routing protocols in the Cisco TAC.
