Providing More In-Depth Technical Analysis of SDN & Virtualisation Technologies Than Any Other Conference
Welcome to the 3rd Annual, SDN & Virtualisation Summit, part of the newly formed SDN & NFV World Series. This year's event is in the beautiful city of Nice.
This is the flagship conference in Europe for Operators looking into SDN and network virtualisation and currently the ONLY global free-to-attend* SDN conference.
Following shockwaves sent into the industry by the ETSI NFV working group, and the unprecedented interest received by SDN & Open technologies; we’ve pulled out all the stops to make this year’s conference the essential meeting place for telco network professionals.
At the event you’ll find everything you need to understand SDN, its’ relevance to network functions virtualisation and the opportunities these present to the telecoms sector. But more than that, we will be digging deep from a technical point of view to understand from an engineering and architectural scope.
Topics to be covered include: Software Defined Data Centre, Network Functions Virtualisation,Virtualisation & the Cloud, Enterprise SDN, Northbound APIs & Interfaces
The event is co-located with Ethernet World meaning that you will network with 500+ attendees under one roof! Plus it is free to attend for Operators

In October 2013; the world’s foremost thought-leaders in the Network Virtualisation industry converged in Prague. More than 40 of the industry’s best speakers shared their experiences, ideals, challenges, wants & needs to a packed house made up of Tier 1 & 2 carriers, industry associations, solution providers, analysts, consultants, OTTs and other key stakeholders from the realm of virtualisation.
Top of the agenda: what can SDN do for today’s carrier, and will it be the answer to network capacity issues faced across the industry? Will NFV fulfil its’ potential? What needs to be done to accelerate towards virtualisation rollouts, and what else is on the horizon for the “future network”?
From NFV & SDN, to OpenFlow, Data Centre, Cloud, OTN, and many others, we shone the spotlight across the entire carrier network and areas where we’ll be seeing benefits in the years to come. We looked at what’s happened already, with presentations from key industry groups like the ETSI NFV (who gave one of their first public statements of intent at last year’s show), OpenDaylight Foundation, coverage of ONF activity, and the most active carriers such as NTT, Deutsche Telekom, BT & Telefonica.

Excellent organization of a very interesting event. Importantly, it offered a real chance for Operators, Vendors and other players in the Telco arena to share their views and discuss about the challenges and the opportunities offered by SDN and Virtualisation. Open-source software and standard hardware will play a significant role in the coming Industry transformation, so meeting also the Players of such fields, at these events, will be extremely valuable.Telecom Italia
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 challengesSFR
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.IETF
