Austin Convention Center, Austin, Texas
The telecom industry’s premier North American event in the communications space brings its unique focus on the business of transforming communications networks to Austin, this year featuring the first global interoperability demo of the New IP Agency. The NIA is the non-profit initiative to bring clarity to the multiple virtualization standards. Efforts and results of its early testing efforts will be featured at BCE 2016. The event’s stellar speaking lineup of service provider executives also tackles other big issues facing network operators, including the ongoing impact of virtualization; dramatic shifts in the video services market; the maturing cloud services market and its impact on data centers and data center interconnection; new revenue opportunities from the Internet of Things and use of big data/analytics; and new core technology changes, including next generation network components.
Simon Stanley hosted the Components Track with a market overview, keynotes from Equinix and Xilinx, and panel sessions covering wireless infrastructure and data center interconnects with speakers from Accelink, ARM, Artesyn, Huawei, Mitel, Mellanox, MoSys and Xilinx.
