Simon Stanley ran this deep dive into the world of Next-Generation Network Components in Santa Clara, California attended by more than 150 delegates.
Smart devices and cloud services are driving demand for new network technologies and ever higher bandwidths. Next generation networks need to support up to 100 and 400 Gbit/s and be built on a virtualized infrastructure using SDN and NFV. At the heart of these networks are the latest optical, semiconductor and software components being developed today, which is why the Next-Generation Network Components event is so important.
Next-Generation Network Components was a must-attend for anyone involved in developing or deploying next generation networking equipment. The sessions covered 100G and 400G networking for data center, metro and long haul networks, 25Gbit/s and 50Gbit/s serial interconnects, wireless infrastructure for 4G and 5G, and components for SDN & NFV.
