The premier global event assembling the value-rich community of thought leaders shaping the future of Carrier Ethernet, Carrier SDN, and Cloud Service markets.
The Ethernet & SDN Executive Council consists of 140+ service and technology experts from 73+ service providers worldwide. In April and May 2013, Heavy Reading surveyed this group to explore their views regarding the current direction and future prospects for the global Carrier Ethernet market and its convergence with SDN principles and technologies. This report provides complete results of this in-depth survey, covering a full range of deployment and business issues facing Carrier Ethernet service providers. Valued at $4,995, this report will be available to all Ethernet & SDN Expo attendees. Register today!
New in 2013! Co-located with Interop New York
Ethernet & SDN Expo is co-locating with Interop New York, the leading event for IT pros and technology providers delivering insight into the future of IT infrastructure and networking, to bring you the world’s largest event targeting BOTH service providers and IT professionals.
Aligning with Interop provides an unprecedented opportunity for leading network solution providers and service providers to take their message of Ethernet, SDN, and cloud service innovation directly to several thousand enterprise end-users and buyers of communications services who regularly attend Interop events.
Light Reading’s Ethernet & SDN Expo will focus on how the convergence of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and emerging carrier software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) technologies will accelerate the ability of operators to develop and deliver more scalable, dynamic, and customized services and applications more rapidly, over much more efficient networks.
- A huge community of expert keynote speakers and panelists from fixed and mobile network operators, network solutions providers, enterprises, and standards organizations will discuss their visions, initiatives, requirements, and technology developments that will take the communications services market to a whole new level.
- We will cover an emerging generation of advanced Ethernet-based and SDN-empowered retail, wholesale, cloud, cloud carrier, cloud broker, and mobile backhaul services and API-driven applications designed to provide the highest quality customer experience increasingly in an on-demand, self-service, tailored fashion.
- We will explore exciting new carrier SDN/NFV, Carrier Ethernet 2.0, packet optical, network management, sub-system, and component solutions that are becoming available to enable a generational paradigm shift in service creation, delivery, management, and monetization.
Ethernet & SDN Expo 2013 is designed to meet the information needs of service providers and enterprises that are working out what next-generation services and applications to deploy, and what infrastructures will help them do this in the most cost-effective and productive manner. The conference will provide unprecedented networking opportunities for professionals involved in both Carrier Ethernet and SDN communities.
