The 1st worldwide Event in the MPLS SDN & NFV Market
One Single World Congress in 2016The 18th Edition of the MPLS/SDN/NFV World Congress, to be held 08/11 March 2016 in Paris, will once again gather major actors of service providers and enterprises networks evolution.
The Congress will begin with a plenary session during the first conference day and will then carry on with two main tracks: NFV & Open source and MPLS SDN Perspectives.
A strong presence of service providers (more than 50% of the audience) as well as a growing internationalization (see figures) will confirm the Paris World Congress as the first worldwide event in the MPLS SDN & NFV area.
Learn from Orange, BT, Telefonica, Comcast, Google, Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, AT&T, Telecom Italia, NTT, Verizon and Colt experiences and vision.
Software defined WAN: what will the future CPE looks like?
The Software Defined Access is definitely the hottest subject in the industry. What functions should be with the customer? In the POP?
• Next generation CPE
Is NFV another mirage, just like the one the Industry like to invent on a regular bases?
Many service providers today, seem to think so as they have trouble making difference between SDN and NFV. Others seems to think that this attitude is just a necessary pause after the abundant media cover and that the NFV concept will soon mature in a definite solution.
• Service insurance in NFV: What about mission critical services?
• Return on experiences: facing reality
• An open ecosystem for NFV and SDN
Some industry actors are claiming that we do not need MPLS no more. Service Providers, have however, a more concrete vision. It’s not about getting rid of MPLS but finding out what it is possible or not possible to achieve with this technology within virtual networks architecture.
• Segment routing: deployment experience and technology update
• SDN for core networks
• Analytics & multicast
Co-located with the congress, the 5G Observatory and the Fog Networking conferences will discuss and highlight the last developments in the 5G area in terms of research as well as industry perspectives.
