NFV World Congress | Accelerating Innovation for Networks


NFV+SDN Carrier Evolution in Silicon Valley

 

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. Over 1,000 delegates attending the launch event in spring 2015, growing to over 1,300 delegates in 2016, along with 50+ exhibitors and over 20 live demos.

As new commercial applications and services are launched and deployed - such as SD-WAN - 2017 will see important advances in NFV+SDN+MANO. There is no let-up in the pace of innovation, with NFV now forming the cornerstone of telecom network and business transformation.

In a commercial setting, the complete ecosystem is coming together again in May to advance the market, to demonstrate a critical mass of progress, and to show just what NFV+SDN can deliver to carriers and their customers.

Truly neutral – with no hidden agenda – NFV World Congress is the principal platform for the industry to showcase applied innovation for production networks, as opposed to blue-sky research.

Plan to meet 1,500 colleagues, leaders and activists at this centre of gravity in San Jose for the NFV+SDN+MANO network ecosystem. 

 

 

 

NEW - NFV World Marketplace - the industry's multi-vendor, multi-community platform to showcase the reality of NFV. Find out how the industry is working together to offer commercial solutions.

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.
