SDN NFV World Congress | Accelerating Innovation for Networks


Established in 2012, SDN NFV World Congress creates the principal market focus for network innovation, and has grown to become the world's largest meeting place for carrier Network Transformation industry leaders.

1,700+ executives, decision makers, leaders and activists meet, learn and exchange knowledge face-to-face in The Hague, watched by a global audience via live webcast.

Launched in the spring of 2012 - the first global SDN conference - SDN NFV World Congress is the industry leading debating forum and showcase for the rapidly growing and massively influential, Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualisation industries.

Now, with over 100 supporting partners and sponsors, and 1,700+ delegates in 2017, the World Congress has established itself as the principal network innovation conference in Europe for the global telecommunications industry. The agenda has expanded in a judicious manner to embrace areas of Network Innovation with the most relevance and urgency for carriers today, including:

- Networking Technology/Infrastructure (Hardware, Interop, Perform, Accelerate)
- Automation & Operation (Zero Touch, Automation, Orchestration, API, OSS, Security, Policy)
- SD-WAN & Business (Strategy, Applications, Services, Networks, Revenue)
- Cloud Optical (Transport SDN, TIP Telecom Infrastructure Project, Open Line Systems)
- 5G CAT (Core, Access, Transport, vEPC, SD-Backhaul, Multi-Access Edge Computing, Network Slicing)
- NFV Security (CI/CD, process validation, MANO & NFVO authority & accreditation, embedded trust mechanisms, trusted orchestrator/VIM/VNF/NFVi, continuous security patches)
- Open Networking (The Infra Project (TIP), Zero Touch network and service Management (ZSM), OpenStack, Open Source MANO, CORD)


While Layer123 expands the expo and agenda each year, the World Congress has been consistently over-subscribed, making it the industry's first choice event. SDN NFV World Congress is set to grow again in 2018.

Join the real market-makers, leaders and activists and be part of the community and positive energy. We look forward to working with you again in 2018!

 


Launched in October 2017!
