Software Telco Congress Moves to Las Vegas and Calls for Speakers to Share Expert Insight on Virtualization

Norwalk, CT – February 18, 2014 – TMC today announced that the next Software Telco Congress will take place on August 11-14, 2014, at The Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Software Telco Congress is designed around the benefits and opportunities that Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) offers. Network functions are more intertwined that ever before, allowing carriers to place resources outside of their traditional footprint to provide more responsive services. As software-based networks begin to replace network hardware, the Software Telco Congress will dive into the technology, services and best approaches that will allow carriers to save money and benefit significantly from the new flexibility in their networks.

Software Telco Congress will bring together the industry’s leading Tier 1, 2 and 3 telco carriers, resellers and developers for a series of education sessions. The event has officially opened its Call for Speakers for the August event, and individuals interested in presenting should complete the online form here. For questions, please contact Erik Linask at 203-852-6800 ext. 284. Speaker submissions are being accepted until March 1, 2014.

Programming at Software Telco Congress will be focused on:

  • Migration to software-based telco platforms
  • Security considerations of virtualized telco platforms
  • Can a software telco rely on public clouds?
  • The need for real-time communication support in cloud-oriented solutions
  • Dealing with legacy/software hybrid migration solutions
  • Software telco ROI from power savings, open system use, etc.
  • Birth of the software telco ecosystem and considerations required
  • Disparate hypervisor considerations
  • NFV compliance considerations
  • NFV and SDN – Better together?
  • Software telco in a multi-vendor world
  • Are there limits to telco virtualization solutions?
