With Software Defined-Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies dominated the headlines for the last 10 years’, the benefits of such innovations are not lost on the industry. Although we know what the technologies are, we know need to ask the question of how and where we can deploy both SDN & NFV to realize the benefits in the networks.

Formerly known as SDN & NFV Conference, the event was rebranded in early 2015 to offer greater flexibility and freedom when addressing content and topics to be featured within the agenda. IIR’s 4th Annual Network Virtualization Forum will address the industry’s most pressing questions, focusing on real-world deployment:

  • What is the roadmap for deployment for both SDN & NFV?
  • How can we monetize these innovative technologies?
  • Have we finally overcome security concerns?
  • What is the true value of Orchestration and where should the orchestrator sit?
  • How can Ethernet be enabled through the implementation of SDN & NFV?


Europe’s most engaging SDN & NFV conference and expo is coming back for the fourth year in 2015.

SDN Summit was a great insight into the use cases of software defined networking, and helped to remove a lot of the hype that surrounds the technology, and was also a great way to meet other telecoms professionals facing the same challenges


Conferences like the SDN Summit are critical to establishing the use cases and problems facing operators, and consequently the direction of SDN development and ultimate solutions.
