At Layer123, we connect everyone involved in the network transformation process – helping operators and network owners to virtualise their networks and find commercial benefits from the improved performance this transformation brings.
With presentations that are always unique to the events you hear them at, our congresses bring together representatives from telecoms operators, network owners, analysts, data centres, solution providers, and more – everyone with a voice in how networking is moving to an open future - whether you choose to take part virtually or be there in person.
Sessions at our events don’t just cover technical details like SDN, NFV, OpenRAN, edge computing, applied AI, disaggregation, automation and orchestration. They also reveal how operators and network owners are commercialising these technologies - making a real difference to operator profitability.
