About this event

Tune in at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday to watch the live webcast on the Out of the Box Network Developer YouTube channel. See below for agenda and session details. This meetup is brought to you in conjunction with the Out of the Box Network Developers meetup group. 


Join us at the next Intel® Developer Zone SDN/NFV Network Developer Lab on September 19th & 20th. The importance of SDN/NFV has increased in the wake of impeding 5G that demands massive scalability, agility, latency and performance from the network. This means the VNFs and SDN solutions should be designed to be truly platform agnostic while meeting the latency and performance requirements traditionally met by ASICs, Network Processors and custom ASICs. In this lab, industry experts from Huawei, Ericsson and Intel will talk about the control plan and NFV development and Orchestration framework, and how they play a critical role in an agile network.
