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.

 

Whom you will meet and How You Can Benefit

 

Key Themes:
"In order to meet enterprise customer needs for SD-WAN, operators not only need the right technical solution, but must also identify the right business cases, operational tools and partnerships for SD-WAN services" said Sunil Khandekar, founder and CEO of Nuage Networks , the Nokia Networks SDN unit, in a recent interview with Light Reading.

This new knowledge exchange will bring together many of the industry's leaders to share emerging understanding and test the latest thinking on technology and business aspects of the new technologies and the new enterprise services that they will power, helping you to navigate the evolving landscape.
 

The agenda will feature:
- Case Studies of the first implementations of SD-WAN, along with some of the first VNFs offered to enterprise customers
- The latest operational and automation tools and approaches
- Key requirements for successfully addressing enterprise customer expectations
- Lessons learned so far and next steps for the industry
