Enabling Rapid Service Provisioning & Assurance for Fixed & Mobile Next-Gen Data Services with Ethernet, SDN, NFV & Cloud


As networking focus shifts to cost effective enablement of cloud, data and mobile services Ethernet World 2014 examined how the convergence of Carrier Ethernet, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) technologies will enable operators to develop and deliver more scalable, dynamic, and customised services and applications in both fixed and mobile networks.

Well established as the leading Ethernet event in the market, 2014 saw Ethernet World refocusing on service enablement to answer the current questions service providers and enterprises are asking about determining which next-generation data services and applications to enable, and which infrastructures will help them do this in the most cost-effective manner.

With over 25 operator case study presentations in the Ethernet conference alone plus the opportunity to access all of the SDN & NFV conference content the two days represented to be very valuable for the attendees.

Thanks to all of you who came along…See you in 2015!

Ethernet World moved to Prague in 2013, to capture the growing Central and Eastern European network developments while also securing Western Europe’s expertise. Revitalised with fresh content, formats and ideas, and with a truly global attendance, CEWC is still the leading forum for discussion, networking and debate on the status of the Carrier Ethernet industry.

This 10th annual event seized the rich revenue opportunity provided by Carrier Ethernet, Cloud and SDN. With 500+ delegates and a global reputation attracting operator attendees from over 50 countries and with 70 different operator companies represented, it was the place to do business for the Ethernet industry and to hear from and network with the leading industry experts from the MEF, ONF, Ethernet Alliance, Broadband Forum and global analysts. Experience the EANTC interop, the CE awards and the CE Essentials master class all under one roof.
