NFV & SDN Summit 2015: Standards or Open Source?Standards versus open source: which is better for quickly getting products to market? What is the role of openstack and opendaylight in network orchestration/control/management? The fourth edition of the NFV & SDN Summit, to be held in Paris in March 2015, will respond to these crucial questions (among others).
As it was the case this year, the Summit will be jointly organized with the 17th Edition of MPLS SDN World. 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 2015 program will pay particular attention to open source initiatives, orchestration issues and NFV use cases. Other sessions will cover mobility, SDN/NFV transition and migration and security. The panel « What have we learned from NFV PoCs ? » will gather the most important European carriers.
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.
The 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 the following panel discussion:
Open source & standards: how they can fit together
Key players from carriers, open source organisms and equipment vendors will discuss open source as a force for creating de facto standards versus traditional standardization mechanisms.
