IEEE World Forum on Internet of ThingsIEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization
co-sponsored by IEEE Software Defined Networks, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Consumer Electronics Society
IEEE NetSoft addresses the challenges raised by the overall transformation trend, which is deeply impacting and bridging Telecom and IT industries, currently considered by Software-Defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and Software-Defined Clouds. This trend is also transforming several other Industries, in using "softwarization" to optimize costs and processes and in bringing new values in infrastructures. In particular, SDN, NFV and network programmability will help creating the conditions to reinvent network and cloud architectures, accelerate service deployment and facilitate infrastructure management.
