OPEN CALL FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE 2013 IEEE SOFTWARE DEFINED NETWORKS FOR FUTURE NETWORKS AND SERVICES (SDN4FNS)

Trento, Italy, 11-13/11/2013

Software Defined Networks - A shift in the paradigm for businesses or fun for technicians?

 

Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) are creating conditions for the reinvention of network architecture. This is happening first on the edges of the network, to where intelligence has already begun to migrate and where innovation is urgent to overcome rigidities through the flexibility of network infrastructure and services.

It is likely that SDNs will impact the future evolution of networks. The adoption of the principles of SDNs will enable savings in costs and improvements in the Quality of Service (QoS) and also create new market opportunities. It will be a question of following the line of thought that predicts that technology and business development will be increasingly intertwined. A given technology will be adopted not only considering its advantages and reliability, but also it will be judged as to whether it will be able to create the desired ecosystem. On the other hand, recently developed ecosystems look for permissive solutions and technologies capable of making them a reality.

Up until 13 August, 2013 the conference is seeking original and unpublished contributions which elaborate on, but are not limited to:

  • Telcos and SDN scenarios (seen not only from the point of view of the network operator, but also of the suppliers, OTTs and other participants in corporate networks, as well as electronics consumers).
  • Advances in software and hardware that enable SDN and NFV.
  • Management and orchestration, regulatory aspects, business models and technical and economic sustainability of SDNs.
