5G Core, Access & Transport Forum
@ SDN World Congress

  
Europe's 5G Network Evolution Knowledge Exchange
  Microwave/mmWave, Optical/WDM, Ethernet & Transport SDN

  
10-11 October 2017 | The Hague, Netherlands



 

WHY ATTEND - 5G Core, Access & Transport Forum @ SDN NFV World Congress


 



Building on the success of Layer123's Packet Microwave & Mobile Backhaul conference, which attracted an audience of over 200 senior professionals responsible for determining strategic planning and procurement decisions in mobile transport networking evolution, each year over 5 years, Layer123 is pleased to offer 5G Core, Access & Transport Forum @ SDN NFV World Congress, the industry's principle networking innovation knowledge exchange.

SDN NFV World Congress - as last year's well attended and critically aclaimed launch of 5G CAT Forum confirmed - is the natural home for the mobile transport network innovation debate. Established as the principal global forum for network innovation relating to NFV and SDN, these technologies now touch every part of the network. With over 2,000 delegates expected to attend the European edition this October, and over 700 operator leaders and activists participating, the impact of SDN+NFV on mobile networks will be placed under close scrutiny by this large and influential group of professionals.

The network is changing – rapidly and profoundly, in some parts. New investment plans and architectures, driven by the SDN and NFV transformation, touch every part of the future network. New 5G and LTE-A requirements for backhaul, fronthaul and crosshaul – and evolution of Microwave and Optical technologies mean that forward-looking network professionals have a great deal to consider and share. 

5G Core, Access & Transport Forum @ SDN NFV World Congress
 will provide a comprehensive agenda for mobile transport & core networking innovators, from vEPC to SD-Backhaul to Microwave, with a key theme of the influence of new SDN and NFV architectures on the evolution of mobile network infrastructure.

Dedicated sessions on 5G Transport and Packet Microwave evolution, plus additional specialist workshops on Microwave transmission technology help ensure that these areas continue to evolve in the new context of SDN+NFV architectures. Dynamic control, hybrid management, multi-domain orchestration, as well as new techniques for capacity expansion and low latency for fronthaul and backhaul, are key topics under development. A full agenda will be published as part of the SDN NFV World Congress agenda

5G Core, Access & Transport Forum will offer senior professionals leading 5G & LTE-A projects from RAN to Backhaul to Core (reflecting the ever-increasing convergence of fixed and mobile broadband infrastructure), to socialise their ideas and to share knowledge and experiences with peers from the transport networking ecosystem and the wider SDN/NFV community, and gain a clear picture of the overall architectures and innovation drivers to advance their work in the most efficient manner.

Join your peers - experts in transport technology, market analysis, senior strategists and planners from service providers - and the leading network solutions providers, in The Hague, and discover how the latest innovation in technology, architecture and solutions can help you 

  • Plan your Transport Network Evolution from LTE/LTE-A towards 5G 
  • Influence the direction of innovation in your industry
  • Evaluate new technologies and share practical experiences with carriers deploying new core, access, backhaul and transport technologies
  • Focus on optical and microwave transmission infrastructure, and the changes that new architectures will drive
  • Speed the innovation  cycle with new SDN/NFV tools & architectures
  • Protect your investment - gain the depth of insight necessary to develop the optimal roadmap for your existing infrastructure
  • Differentiate your business proposition - be the first to hear about the new architectures, technologies and solutions that you can use to deliver unique value propositions to your customers
  • Broaden and share your expertise with new contacts to anticipate and help shape important future developments

Operators, Regulators and Industry Analysts - take an active role in one of the Knowledge Exchange debates and attend the event as a guest of Layer123!
