A Renewed International Success

With 1,600+ participants, the 21st edition of MPLS + SDN + NFV World reached the record attendance of last year. This renewed success makes the Paris Congress a unique venue for sharing ideas from across the industry. MPLS + SDN + NFV World remains the place to be for a preview of the next big thing.

Intent based networking was given a large importance in this year' agenda. Other important sessions covered edge cloud architectures, network slicing, telemetry, automation and segment routing.
