ABOUT THE EVENT
Join the industry’s top thought leaders at the leading US event devoted to virtualization for telecom network operators. This event annually dives into real-world issues and deployment challenges through thought-provoking keynotes from service provider executives who are on the front lines of NFV and SDN deployment.
The 2018 event will continue assessing what NFV and SDN are executing on several crucial fronts: automation from service assurance to security enforcement, more rapid development of innovative services and successful monetization of the cloud by CSPs. Security will also be discussed in terms of readiness and performance of commercial security solutions including adoption of emerging business models that will enable service providers to evolve into Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs).
