Welcome to the latest newsletter from SDN World News, guiding you through the latest developments in the world of Network Functions Virtualization and Software-Defined Networking. 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.
The industry gathered in London two weeks ago for Network Virtualization & SDN World, a unique, global, operator-led conference and exhibition, now in its second year, focusing on all aspects of SDN and NFV with particular relevance to the telco community.
This year’s event featured a great deal of focus on SDN and NFV deployment strategies across the network, with thought-provoking contributions from many prominent industry leaders including BT, NTT, Comcast, Telstra and Telefonica, and a host of NFV Proof of Concept demonstrations from leading vendors in the accompanying exhibition.
The Software-Defined Data Centre Summit which opened the event also offered valuable new insights into this expanding new area from Deutsche Telekom, Colt, Pacnet, Telus and JT Global, while the API Forum which concluded the conference brought together NTT, PCCW Global, BT, OpenDaylight and the OpenStack Foundation and high-profile vendors for a rewarding debate on openness and collaboration and developing a common approach towards Telco APIs.
The Network Virtualization Industry Awards were also well-received, with wins for Nuage Networks, Cyan, Colt, RAD and Tail-f. Click here for the full results: http://sdnworldevent.com/network-virtualization-industry-awards/
Packed conference rooms throughout the event also paid witness to the fact that the NFV industry buzzword is far from diminishing – and as the ETSI NFV ISG prepares to move towards a brand new era in 2015 and beyond, the future is looking particularly bright.
