The 2017 DemoFriday library features presentations that demonstrate working SDN/NFV/virtualization products to the SDxCentral community. The real-world examples take SDN/NFV from the theoretical to the practical so you can improve your network and solve pressing business problems today with real SDN demonstrations.
Usually presented by the CTOs, software architects, and product managers who helped develop the NFV and SDN products, DemoFridays help you understand SDN/NFV’s capabilities and limitations as well as how the emerging markets are developing.
Q&As about the NFV and SDN products follow every DemoFriday, giving you the chance to learn from colleagues in the networking community as well as the presenters themselves. Become a part of the influential community responsible for driving change in networking today and check out previous DemoFridays below, or keep your eye out for upcoming presentations.
Access to the DemoFriday archives is limited to SDxCentral members. To become a member today, join here —membership is free! (Information may be shared with content partners.)
