Kireeti Kompella during MPLS 2012 at Paris

  The First Worldwide Event in the MPLS and SDN Area

The 16th Edition of the MPLS World Congress will take place in Paris in March 2014. What was until now known as MPLS & Ethernet World Congress will become the MPLS SDN World Congress in 2014.

The objective set by Upperside Conferences is to confirm the success of the 2013 edition. MPLS SDN World Congress, together with the collocated NFV & SDN Summit, attracted 1350 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 (more than 65 countries represented) confirms MPLS SDN World Congress as the first worldwide event in the MPLS area.

MPLS SDN World Congress will once again allow us to benefit from the enlightenment of the precise stakes involved in the convergence of the MPLS protocols, particularly their respective roles in the access networks.

2014 - The Union of MPLS SDN World and NFV & SDN Summit: 1500 participants

As was the case this year, the 16th edition of MPLS World will be jointly organized with the NFV & SDN Summit, whose second  edition of 2013 attracted more than 400 participants, making this event the largest in Europe (Upperside Conferences was the first to organize an event around the SDN theme in June 2012). The growing interest in this new technology should attract about 1500 attendees for the 2014 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.

More than 50% of Service Providers, a Growing Internationalization

The profile of the Congress delegates demonstrates a growing internationalization and a very strong presence of service providers. Representatives from the EU were 45 %, followed by North America(19%), Russia (11%) and South America (9%). With carriers coming from more than 65 countries, the MPLS World Congress can claim to be the first international event in this realm.

The 2014 Agenda: Data Center Virtualization, Segment Routing

The 2014 agenda will privilege operator and enterprises scenarios and testimonies. The main focus will be on Data Center Virtualization, especially overlays and WAN interconnection issues. A large session will be dedicated to the Segment Routing initiative, launched during the 2013 edition of the Congress.

Other sessions will cover OpenFlow aspects, performance and traffic engineering issues and mobile SDN.

The proposals have been 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 for their commitment and support.

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 objective of the tests is to verify protocol interoperability for service provider oriented toolkits focused on functionality, flexibility and adaptability of networks. Once we verify protocol interoperability we will construct an orchestrated data center to data center network.

Cloud delivery and orchestration will be 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).
