Limited Seating.
Registration closes on 6 March 2017
You can earn 0.6 IEEE Continuing Education Units for participating.
Food for Thought

“NFV- and SDN-related spend volume is forecast to ramp up in 2017, at which time use cases will be more defined and the cost benefits of using NFV and SDN will be more apparent. This will prompt holdout operators to jump on the bandwagon and aggressively pursue transformation with these technologies to avoid being left behind.” according to Chris Antlitz, telecom senior analyst at TBR.  Source: NFV and SDN market to hit $158B by 2021.
