Welcome to the latest newsletter from SDN World News, guiding you through the latest developments in the world of Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization. We are pleased to bring together the best of the resources we’ve been watching in recent weeks, so you can keep in touch with SDN and NFV the easy way.
It would seem that the vendors in the SDN and NFV space are all keeping busy at the moment with frequent new product announcements and alliances forming, as everyone works swiftly to assure their position in this burgeoning new market. The Whitebox debate is also still very much an issue for more established players – just how much of a threat do Whitebox vendors pose? And how can traditional vendors defend themselves in the long run as more and more commodity equipment becomes available?
At SDN World News, we are very much looking forward to Carrier Network Virtualization in Palo Alto, California on 9-11 December 2013, a new event featuring contributions from over 20 carriers worldwide. The results of the Whitebox debate taking place on Monday 9th December and the Innovation Accelerator Awards on the evening of Tuesday 10th December will no doubt be of great interest to many.
Plans for the annual Network Virtualization and SDN World conference and exhibition in London on 27-29 May 2014 are now also taking shape. If you have any ideas for the programme which you would like to feed into this, please do let us know.
Please find below a round-up of what we’ve spotted this month…
