NFV & SDN Summit 2014: Solutions for Network Virtualization
What was previously known as the SDN Summit will become the NFV & SDN Summit in 2014. The second edition of this Summit in 2013 attracted more than 400 participants.
Together with the collocated MPLS SDN World Congress, the total audience for NFV & SDN Summit reached 1350 people. Upperside targets +1500 participants for the 2014 edition.
Carriers Coming from 65 Countries
The profile of the SDN Summit delegates demonstrates a growing internationalization and a very strong presence of service providers. Representatives from the EU were 45 %, followed by North America (18%), Russia (11%) and South America (9%). With carriers coming from more than 65 countries, the SDN Summit and the MPLS World Congress can claim to be the first international event in this realm.
NFV & SDN Summit Agenda: Architecture, Standard Progress, Service Chaining, Cloud NFV, OpenSource
The 2014 program will pay particular attention to NFV architecture and standardization process. Principal issue addressed by the participants will be: “How to combine NFV with SDN”. Other sessions will cover Service chaining, OpenSource, Cloud aspects and performance issues. A large session is dedicated to current use cases and first NFV&SDN implementations. Particular attention will be also payed on Non Intel Approaches for NFV.
The scientific committee has reviewed the proposals.

Colocation with MPLS SDN World Congress As was the case in 2013, NFV & SDN Summit and the collocated MPLS SDN World Congress will have a common agenda during the first day of the event, and will end with a debate addressing the most important technical issues impacting service providers’ network architectures.
The Interop Platform
The European Advanced Networking Test Center ( EANTC) in collaboration with Upperside Conferences invites vendors to a multi-vendor MPLS & SDN interoperability test in February 2014. The results of the interoperability tests will be demonstrated during the MPLS and SDN World Congress.
For the 2014 edition, the tests focused on the following scenarios:
• Software Defined Networking (SDN): OpenFlow and PCE
• IPv6 Migration Scenarios
• MPLS and Ethernet Transport
• Data Center Interconnection
The tests will be performed and verified in detail at a closed doors hot staging at EANTC lab in Berlin.
The successful results of the tests were documented in a white paper released by EANTC during the congress.
