|Intel||Trevor is a leading engineer in Intel's Network Virtualization initiatives and has worked on Networking technologies for over 25 years. His focus is Edge Cloud and is involved with a number of open source communities including OPNFV, OpenStack and Akraino. He is interested in all things NFV and Edge, in particular related to network performance and testing.|
Trevor currently represents OPNFV on the SPC and has done an admirable job. There are times when Trevor's long-standing knowledge of virtualization and open source communities are a critical asset in this position. Trevor is a founding participant in OPNFV, a former PTL of the VSPerf Project, and a member of OPNFV TSC for several years. IMO, he is the ideal candidate for consistency in a time of change elsewhere.
