The first NFV World Congress is coming to Silicon Valley next week, and SDxCentral will be there to bring you a live stream from the event.
NFV World Congress is the first conference to offer an undivided market focus on NFV (network functions virtualization) alongside software-defined networking (SDN). Starting Tuesday, May 5, more than 700 NFV and SDN industry leaders and activists will come together in San Jose, Calif. to examine current NFV and SDN developments, debate the issues surrounding the technologies, and see real-world applications firsthand.
NFV has gained rapid traction over the past couple years to become a top priority for carriers, vendors, data centers, and enterprises. Operators have been restructuring procurement and operational strategies to take full advantage of NFV’s fundamental change in underlying technology, and this winter, ETSI’s ISG for NFV published its first 11 Group Specifications to outline common and agreed-upon definitions for key concepts of NFV.
NFV World Congress will have more than 150 leading speakers representing the full range of the NFV market. The conference offers the first OPNFV mini-summit, the second OpenDaylight mini-summit, and the MEF‘s first Workshop on LSO (lifecycle service orchestration). The conference also will feature more than 50 suppliers and organizations at the NFV World Expo, including the largest showcase of live NFV proof-of-concepts (PoC).
As a media partner of NFV World Congress, SDxCentral is excited to host the NFV World Congress live stream all four days. On Tuesday, May 5, Workshop Day, the live stream will come only from the OPNFV mini-summit. Once the congress officially opens on May 6, we will stream from the plenary session and then the NFV Infrastructure Forum each day.
The conference and live streaming starts May 5 at 9:00 a.m. PDT and ends on May 8 at 3:35 p.m PDT. To watch the NFV World Congress live stream, you will need to sign into your SDxCentral account first or sign up for an account beforehand (it’s free!).
