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


NFV-powered Business Service Innovation for the Digital Enterprise

 

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.

Software-Defined WAN, Virtual Network Functions and Security are the first critical components for the new Digital Enterprise: none can operate in a silo. In order to succeed and grow into this market potential, new business services must be synthesised from the combination.

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, VNF & 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, VNF, Security and Business Services marketplace. 

 

10 Benefits of participation:

1. Meet the industry leaders driving change with NFV at North America’s principal knowledge exchange for the NFV-powered Business Services marketplace

7. Get to grips with the most influential innovation initiatives and identify new opportunities, by attending aligned sessions, including NFV Management, NFV Security and 5G for Business

8. Focus your time on face to face meetings and use Layer123's unique on-demand video service to catch up on all the presentations when you get home
