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.
More than 65 countries represented
The profile of the Congress delegates demonstrates a growing internationalization and a very strong presence of service providers.
Representatives from the EU were 50 %, followed by North America (15%), Russia (13%) and Middle East (9%). With carriers coming from more than 65 countries, the NFV & SDN Summit and the MPLS SDN World Congress can claim to be the first international event in this realm.
The Agenda: Open Source initiatives, PoCs reports, use cases, orchestration
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 improtant European carriers.
The proposals have been analyzed and categorized according to their degree of pertinence by the members of the scientific communitee. The agenda is now avaliable online.
