From management to orchestration

The 19th Edition of the MPLS SDN & NFV World Congress, to be held from 21st to 24th of March 2017 in Paris, will reflect the major trend in the networking industry: how to evolve from management to orchestration.

The event will once again gather major actors of service providers and enterprises networks evolution.

A strong presence of service providers (45% of the +1500 participants) as well as a growing internationalization (more than 65 countries represented) will confirm the Paris World Congress as the first worldwide event in the MPLS, SDN and NFV area.

The agenda: Orchestration, SD-WAN, SR, EVPN, Service assurance, AI

 
Mano, SDN controlers, ECOMP: orchestration is at the center of the service providers platforms evolution. The 2017 agenda will reflect this major trend. The main sessions will involve standardization organisms (ETSI, OPEN O, Linux Foundation, MEF), service providers and renowned experts in the vendor communiity.

The first day general panel will address the SD-WAN phenomenon and its impact on current MPLS services through testimonies from enterprises and service providers.

Next March, we will be following the latest Segment Routing developments and deployments.
This session will involve major service providers who have recently decided to jump on the SR wagon. Bell Canada, Comcast and Microsoft will describe their deployment scenario.

New important sessions will describe how AI is used in strategic networking areas (cyber security, analytics) and service experience assurance issues.

Other sessions will cover EVPN, SDN WAN, NFVI, Openstack, Containers, MEC & 5G and IPv6.

The full conference agenda is now available online.

The Exhibition


The Multi-vendor Interoperability Test

The European Advanced Networking Test Center and Upperside Conferences invite interested vendors to our public multi-vendor interoperability test and showcase at the MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress 2017.

Core topics for the upcoming edition are:
  • Segment Routing, BGP-LS and new TEAS (Traffic Engineering Architecture and Signaling) developments
  • MPLS Ethernet VPNs (EVPNs) and VXLAN
  • SDN in the WAN: PCE (including newer extensions) and NETCONF with Yang models for VPN services and for LDP
  • Flexible Ethernet and other optical transport concepts integrating with packet networks
  • Clock synchronization advances for LTE and 5G backhaul
Participants will be able to actively shape the program and set the course during the preparation of the hot-staging.

The hot staging itself will be a closed doors fully immersive test event taking place at EANTC’s lab in Berlin, with the whole set-up later to be transported and demonstrated live at the Paris conference. Successful results will be published in a white paper.
