SDN NFV World Congress 2017


 
Advancing the Carrier vision of NFV+SDN+MANO
  Realising the Potential of Software-Defined Networking

 
  9-13 October 2017 | World Forum, The Hague, Netherlands

SDN NFV World Congress | Accelerating Innovation for Networks

 

Carriers are looking to leverage SDN and NFV to help them consolidate many network equipment types onto industry-standard high-volume servers, switches and storage, thus providing a new network production environment which lowers cost, raises efficiency and increases agility.


The NFV project was launched by a group of Tier 1 carriers, including BT, NTT, Orange, Deutsche Telekom, KDDI and others, at SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in Darmstadt in October 2012 - and was then formalised as an Industry Specification Group under the auspices of ETSI. Come and find out how NFV is progressing and what impact it will have on your business, direct from the project leadership.

 

 

 

Since the early days of Clean Slate SDN at Stanford many years ago, and the first conceptual ideas of Carrier NFV at ETSI, the market continues to change - absorbing the academic revolution, R&D science projects and blue-sky musings to synthesise a new business-driven reality for practical network evolution.

 

We know now for sure that Network Functions Virtualisation plus Software-Defined Networking is the biggest change in networking for a decade.

 

Carrier activists are now moving into the "doing" phase of SDN+NFV, supported by a strong momentum of rapid specification, SDO collaboration, ecosystem partnerships, global solution development, public Proof-of-Concepts and - for the first time - open source communities such as Open Source MANO and OpenStack.


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 1,600+ delegates in 2016, the World Congress has established itself as the principal network innovation conference in Europe for the global telecommunications industry. While Layer123 doubled the Expo space available each year, the World Congress was still over-subscribed in 2013, 2014 and again in 2015, making it the industry's first choice event. Now established in a new, scalable venue, SDN NFV World Congress is set to grow again in 2017.

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 2017!
