The First Worldwide Event on the MPLS and SDN Market
The MPLS SDN World Congress has always been an event that worked hard to bring industry icons and mavericks together to exchange ideas about the latest emerging networking technologies. The 17th Edition, which will take place in Paris in March 2015, won’t disappoint.
The objective set by Upperside Conferences is to confirm the success of the 2014 edition. MPLS SDN World Congress, together with the collocated NFV & SDN Summit, attracted 1400 participants last March. This figure represents a new record number of participants attending this conference.
A strong presence of service providers (more than 50% of the audience) as well as a growing internationalization (see figures) confirms MPLS SDN World Congress as the first worldwide event in the MPLS & SDN area.
More than 65 countries representedThe profile of the Congress delegates demonstrates a growing internationalization and a very strong presence of service providers.
Representatives from the EU were 50 %, followed by North America (15%), Russia (13%) and Middle East (9%). With carriers coming from more than 65 countries, the NFV & SDN Summit and the MPLS SDN World Congress can claim to be the first international event in this realm.
Co-located with the NFV & SDN Summit
As was the case this year, the 17th Edition of MPLS SDN World will be jointly organized with the NFV & SDN Summit, whose 2014 edition attracted more than 400 participants, making this event the largest in Europe. The growing interest in this new technology should attract about 1500 attendees for the 2015 edition of MPLS SDN World Congress and the NFV & SDN Summit.
The two events will have a common first day and will conclude with a panel discussion made up of key players (manufacturers and operators) from these technologies.
The agenda: Spring, SDN controller, resilience, SDN migration case studies
The controlplane/dataplane paradigm remains at the heart of the debate. Organizers expect a lot of contributions on segment routing/Spring and RSVP issues. The session will be closed by a panel exploring synergies between these approaches. Other sessions will cover mobile backhaul, SDN controler for traffic engineering and packet optical issues. The programme will reflect the high interest by telecom service providers in migrating quickly to SDN using as much of their installed base of equipment and leveraging as much of their existing skill sets and vendor relationships as possible.
The proposals will be analyzed and categorized according to their degree of pertinence by the members of the scientific committee.Upperside would again like to thank the members of the committee.

The Interop Platform
The European Advanced Networking Test Center ( EANTC) in collaboration with Upperside Conferences will invite industrials to a multi-vendor MPLS SDN & NFV interoperability test in January 2015, that will be demonstrated during the Congress.
In 2014, Cloud delivery and orchestration were the major focus of the interop along the topics of:
- Software Defined Networking (SDN): OpenFlow and PCE
- IPv6 Migration Scenarios
- MPLS and Ethernet Transport
- Data Center Interconnection
During the congress, EANTC will present results in regular guided tours to conference attendees. The showcase will be open for the full four days of the conferences (Tuesday to Friday).
