Software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) leaders from around the world are gathering next month for the SDN World Congress in Germany. More than 1,300 attendees will come together October 14-17 to examine SDN and NFV developments, debate issues facing the industry, and demonstrate cutting-edge technology. SDNCentral is excited to host a live webcast of one of the event’s cornerstone workshops.
On Tuesday, October 14, SDNCentral will host a live stream of the Open Networking Foundation’s (ONF) SDN and OpenFlow workshop featuring innovative presenters from the SDN industry, including standards and open source forum leaders.
The workshop will feature a panel of SDN startups spanning solutions, switches, software, and silicon. Presenters will examine how SDN and NFV are transforming adoption of standards in future networks, including the role of open source software, and they will share use cases for a range of network operators. The workshop also will examine:
- How mobile operators can benefit from SDN and NFV
- SDN applications for enterprise and cloud providers
- How multilayer control will benefit telecommunications operators
As carriers around the world transition from research and development to trial stages and beyond, 2014 is proving to be the year that SDN and NFV begin demonstrating their value. The opportunity for business transformation, cost savings, and new applications revenue is real, and the SDN World Congress provides the chance to gain insight about SDN and NFV – including a realistic look at the market today.
Join us for the live webcast on Tuesday, October 14 starting at 0900 – 1500 (Dusseldorf, Germany Time) to strengthen your strategic planning and decision-making around SDN and NFV.
