MPLS 2013: Confirming the Congress as the First Worldwide Event in the MPLS/Ethernet Area
The 15th edition of the MPLS & Ethernet World Congress will take place in Paris in March, 2013.
The objective set by Upper Side is to continue the progression established during the 2012 edition.
MPLS & Ethernet World attracted more than 1200 participants last February. With service providers making up more than 50% of the audience and a growing international presence (more than 70 countries represented in 2012)
MPLS World and the Carrier Ethernet Workshop will once again allow us to benefit from the enlightenment of the precise stakes involved in the convergence of the MPLS & Ethernet protocols, particularly their respective roles in access networks.
More than 50% of Service Providers, Robust Internationalization The demographics of congress delegates demonstrate vigorous internationalization and a very solid presence of service providers.
At the 2012 event, representatives from the EU made up 48 %, followed by attendees from North America at 18% and 11% from Russia. With carriers from more than 70 countries participating at the event, MPLS & Ethernet World Congress can claim to be the first international event in this realm.
The Carrier Ethernet Workshop 2013 The seventh edition of the Carrier Ethernet Workshop will discuss technological and implementation detailed issues in parallel with the traditional MPLS Tutorial addressed by the Broadband Forum.
The workshop will be addressed by MEF ambassadors for the standardization process review. Other sessions will welcome vendors for business models and solution descriptions and carriers for deployment reports.
The Interop Platform The European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) in collaboration with Upperside Conferences will invite industrials to a multi-vendor MPLS & Ethernet interoperability test in January 2013, which will be demonstrated during the MPLS and Ethernet World Congress.
For the 2012 edition, the tests focused on IPv6 Migration scenarios and Mobile Backhaul strategies making use of ERPS, advancements in MPLS-TP fault detection, and specific 1588 PTP synchronization roles throughout the network. The tests were performed and verified in detail at a closed doors hot staging at EANTC lab in Berlin. The successful results of the tests were documented in a white paper released by EANTC during the congress.
