London, one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities in the world, will host IIR’s brand new SDN Summit 2012

From the successful coverage of SDN at Carrier Ethernet World Congress and Telco Cloud Summit this year, IIR have answered the market demand to create a focused SDN event

A revolution in networking is on the horizon heralding the beginning of the software era of networking. Software Defined Networking (SDN) or “programmable networks” are being touted as a disruptive technology that will enable the networking layer of the data centre to catch up with servers and storage, which have undergone massive transformations i.e. cloud computing & virtualization. SDNs are set to improve network performance, flexibility and manageability thereby increasing the pace of innovation through software, instead of hardware, enabling an open environment in order to deliver high value, game changing applications for customers.
IIR’s brand new Software Defined Networking Summit, 13 – 14 November 2012, will gather attendees from service providers, technology vendors and IT vendors to discuss and debate how SDN can decrease network costs and simplify the introduction of new services by centralising switch and router intelligence. The migration toward software-defined networks will move faster than network operators’ migration to IP.
Software Defined Networking Summit will equip business’s with the tools to embrace more control and customisation over network infrastructures with SDN.
