  Building the new Carrier Network Ecosystem

NFV World Congress 2017


NFV+SDN Carrier Evolution in Silicon Valley

 

A 2015 Heavy Reading global survey commissioned by OPNFV found that nearly 60 percent of telecommunication professionals are actively exploring NFV. A remarkable achievement since 2012, when the Carrier NFV project was first announced at the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in Darmstadt.

 

 


NFV World Congress
was founded in 2014 by a group of visionary and senior carrier leaders, in order to form a centre of gravity for the rapidly emerging NFV industry, and provide the right forum to accelerate innovation and support ecosystem growth.

The inaugural Congress in San Jose established an immediate success in May 2015: attracting 1,000 delegates, 60 exhibitors and the global community of leaders, activists & experts from technology, business and academia, who are driving this network evolution forwards.

Truly neutral – with no hidden agenda – the Congress focuses on applied innovation for production networks, not blue-sky research

 

 

 

NFV World Congress – and its sister SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in Europe – is the principal global industry forum for NFV+SDN.  Every 6 months, the industry meets face-to-face to examine and debate progress, learn and exchange knowledge, and to showcase how the combination of NFV, SDN, MANO and Open Source will provide the next generation of telecom networking.

With 50 analysts and media attending, and a global webcast measured in thousands of viewings, each Congress provides the highest profile platform where a common understanding of business reality and technology direction is mapped out for the market.

(Founding Congress Partners: AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica, BT, NTT DOCOMO, CableLabs, ETSI, ONF, ATIS)

Layer123 is delighted to offer NFV World Congress in May 2017, San Jose, as the centre of gravity for the new NFV+SDN industry, bringing an undivided market focus to NFV+SDN Carrier Evolution in Silicon Valley.

Led by the ETSI ISG for NFV, specification work has been rapid and has delivered Release 1 at the end of 2014, already supported by no fewer than 39 official PoC (Proof of Concept) multi-vendor implementations to date.

The NFV World Congress is established as the principal opportunity to examine developments from the market leaders, debate the issues with the thought leaders and see at first-hand the reality of NFV and SDN - and promises to be another milestone occasion for the whole market.

Book your diaries - and we hope to see you there!
