NTNU QUAM-lab seminar on SDN and NFV

The QUAM-lab is organizing a full-day seminar with focus on Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The purpose of the seminar is to take a closer look at the SDN and NFV concepts, to understand more of the motivation and benefits, and at the same time identify the challenges in particular related to the dependability, security, and performance. The topic will be addressed from the vendor’s, operator’s, and academic point of view.

Time: Thursday Mar 19, 10:00-16:00
Place: Rådsrommet (G144), NTNU ITEM
