SD-WAN, NFV & Security Congress | Powering New Business Services


NFV-powered Business Service Innovation

 

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

In response to demand, and in partnership with market-leading organisations - including Verizon, Host Operator - Layer123 has developed a new and most senior level knowledge exchange platform and EXPO for this important, developing marketplace.

In a commercial setting, the complete ecosystem is coming together 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 – SD-WAN, NFV & Security Congress is the principal platform for the industry to showcase NFV-powered innovation in business services.

Plan to meet 1,000+ colleagues, leaders and activists in the US business powerhouse of Chicago, from the SD-WAN, NFV, Security and Business Services marketplace.
