The Future of Software-Defined Networking

February 5, 2013 | 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM ET

Join Heavy Reading experts and industry pundits for an online symposium designed to educate service providers on the emerging role of software-defined networks. 




Software-defined networking (SDN) is rapidly becoming a game-changing technology that will have significant impact throughout the telecom infrastructure. Because of its anticipated ability to control capex and opex and enable network virtualization, SDN is seen as a significant building block for next-generation carrier networks and services.


As an architectural concept, SDN encompasses the programming of multiple network layers -- including management, network services, control, forwarding and transport planes and as such is being considered across major areas of the telecom landscape including:

  • Carrier infrastructure
  • Optical networks
  • Cloud-based services
  • Application Delivery

 


   Register today to join us on February 5th and hear industry experts

   describe the new SDN future for telecommunications.


Event Highlights:


  • Stuart Elby, Ph.D., Vice President, Network Architecture & Technology, Verizon Digital Media Services will provide a viewpoint in the industry-wide development of SDN.  
  • Heavy Reading analysts will present specific perspectives on how SDN impacts different parts of the network.
  • Interact with speakers and sponsors in an informal exchange of ideas and questions through live Q&A and message boards.
  • SDN Content Resources will be made available to attendees in the SDN Content Library.
  • Prize give-away - one lucky attendee will win an iPad
