Telecom operators around the region have recognised the potential value of NFV and SDN and are gearing towards adopting these technologies to deliver true business agility, new digital services and revenue opportunities. However, there are still many unanswered questions around cost, interoperability, security and more. The vendor message can be sometimes confusing, and the most efficient path is still not apparent to many operators as it is still an evolving market with limited case studies.
With this in mind, IQPC is organising the NFV & SDN MENA Forum for high-level decision makers from leading telecom operators to gather and discuss the potential of NFV and SDN, plus best practices, operational readiness and deployment challenges. This forum will attract NFV and SDN experts from the entire industry ecosystem from software specialists, network systems vendors, service providers and operators to data centre providers and large enterprises to present you with a variety of case studies and use cases.
Additionally, the forum will also host the next IEEE 1916.1 standard for SDN & NFV working group meeting for the first time in the Middle East. Complemented by a strong faculty of high-level speakers representing global and regional telecom operators that are already adopting these technologies, this inclusion transforms this forum into the most comprehensive event of its kind anywhere in the region.
