GEN15 is THE global gathering of networking professionals assembled to discuss and enable the development and implementation of agile, assured, and orchestrated services powered by Carrier Ethernet 2.0, LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), SDN, and NFV.
At last year’s GEN14 event, the MEF brought together more than 1,000 attendees from 308 organizations and 34 countries. The entire industry ecosystem was represented, including end-users, service providers, network technology suppliers, investors, the press, and others.
GEN15 will be bigger and better, with a target of 1,250+ attendees, 250+ service & technology executives, 120 industry-leading speakers, and more than 115 sponsors & event partners. With this lineup, GEN15 represents a unique and valuable opportunity to engage with top Carrier Ethernet, LSO, SDN, NFV, and Cloud services experts who are shaping the future of the communications landscape.
The MEF is working closely with our sponsors and event partners to take GEN15 to a whole new level with enhanced program content and more efficient peer-to-peer networking. In particular, we are developing a special Enterprise Day in conjunction with our partner Network Computing.
We also are expanding popular elements of last year’s program, including the MEF Certified Professionals Convention, Verizon Partner Conference, the Proof of Concept Service & Technology Showcase, Global Media Hub, and MEF Excellence Awards program that recognizes outstanding service, technology, and professional leadership and innovation.
Below is a summary of the activities planned for 16-19 November 2015. The Main Conference Program is forthcoming.
