SDN / NFV was born under the background of automation and intelligence. The combination of them can enable users to optimize network resources and improve network agility. Coupled with the drive for IT change, the data era, and the development of cloud computing , after ten years of development, SDN / NFV has gradually taken shape and has truly entered the commercial deployment period. Nearly all mainstream operators in the world are conducting research and deployment of SDN and NFV to save more costs while providing more flexible and high-quality services. Most speakers at this conference have shown their latest plans and practices In fact, the innovation of network technology has also made the network ecology open and vibrant.
Just as Liu Dong, the chairman of the conference and the director of the National Engineering Center for the Next Generation Internet, said in a speech at the scene, "A few years ago, the entire industry was still discussing how far away from the landing of SDN and NFV? The speech, 'practice' and 'deployment' have become keywords. Many solutions with SDN and NFV as core technologies have been applied in some fields and scenarios. Global operators and large enterprises are working hard to deploy Their new network solutions actively participate in the open source R & D and standardization of related technologies. It can be said that SDN and NFV have entered the real commercial implementation stage from concept discussion. "
Indeed, after several years of development, SDN / NFV is not just a trend, and many solutions with SDN / NFV as its core technology have blossomed. At this conference, well-known operators such as China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, British Telecom, Telefónica, NTT DOCOMO, as well as cloud data centers , Internet companies, major equipment and solution providers all sent experts to participate in this The conference fully demonstrated the SDN / NFV technology practices and applications. The conference also adopted the "1 + 1 joint sharing" form, inviting equipment and solution providers and their cooperating operators to have a dialogue with the same platform to fully display the deployment. Enterprises such as Xinhua III, Huawei, Scitech, Telematics, Ximai Technology, Ruijie, and Ixia shared the application and deployment of SDN / NFV technology to the audience through various forms, so that the audience can get a closer understanding of SDN / NFV How to really change our network and life.
In addition to the main venue, 3 Mini Summits spread over 2 days also attracted wide attention. On August 2nd, ONOS Mini Summit and CORD Mini Summit were co-sponsored with ONF. Technical experts from around the world focused on the two major industry hotspots and shared their development overview, latest applications and future development potential and value. The last Mini Summit on the 3rd, in conjunction with the Global SDN Testing and Certification Center, summarized the 2017 SDNFV Fest test event just co-organized with the China CORD Industry Alliance.
2017 is the sixth year of the Global SDNFV Technology Conference. As the earliest SDN / NFV authoritative event in China, the Global SDNFV Technology Conference keeps pace with the times, focuses on hot spots, and penetrates into WANs, data centers, mobile networks, metro networks, campus networks, The Internet of Things and other aspects bring a feast of technology and perspective to the audience. Driven by the market and technology, many trends such as software definition, network cloudification, and virtualization have become increasingly clear. SDN / NFV technology will have more disruptive development in more scenarios and fields in the future, ushering in the golden age .
