[Event] SDN/NFV: Unlocking the future of network infrastructure

Posted on Posted in Frontpage, news

Digitalization causes a radical transformation of industries, providing unique opportunities for value creation and competitive advantage. Software-defined networking (SDN), often combined with network function virtualization (NFV), is now reshaping the datacenter and telecom landscape. The complexity of new networking technologies is often perceived as a threat, but SDN offers an opportunity to increase efficiency, to create innovative offerings for customers and to (re-)conquer the market.

But how do you capture the full potential of SDN? How do you make sure that it results in a more agile business instead of an operational nightmare? How do you optimize performance, scalability and cost of your networks and datacenters?

Whether you are new to this matter and want to learn more, or an expert in the domain, you will definitely return with new ideas and interesting contacts.

Join us at the DistriNet R&D Bites on 13 December 2016 in Leuven, an informal evening session where speakers from both academia and industry will provide their in-sights on SDN and NFV, and explain how to make it a reality. Afterwards there is a networking drink to further discuss the topic.

DistriNet R&D Bites is a series of evening sessions where industry and academia come together. In an informal setting, you get invaluable insights into state-of-the-art technologies, latest developments and current best practices. The topics are closely related to the research problems that the imec-DistriNet research group is working on, such as cloud security, internet-of-things, high-performance networking, etc.

At DistriNet R&D Bites, there’s plenty of time to exchange experiences with your peers, and to have a casual conversation with the other attendees, as well as the speakers. Naturally, this means we also share a bite to eat and a drink.
