Software Networks: Challenges & Opportunities And The Role Of 5G - Understanding SDN, NFV, MEC, FOG, IOT, and 5G

The 3rd IEEE NFV-SDN Conference

Nov 6th to Nov 8th 2017 at Fraunhofer-Forum

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networks (SDN) enable rapid network and service innovation for all participants in the future telecommunication and 5G ecosystems.
The 2017 3rd IEEE Conference on NFV-SDN is this year’s premier event for the areas of NFV and SDN. After two highly successful repetitions of the event in Bay Area with more than 140 participants, it comes for time first this year to Europe and is co-located with the Berlin 5G week.

Edge Computing Forum the Future of Edge Computing

Nov 7th 2017 at Fraunhofer FOKUS

Since the 1960's we observe paradigm shifts in the context of distributed computing from mainframes to client-server models and back to centralized cloud approaches. The next development will include the distribution of intelligence back to the topological edge of the network; even including functionalities on nebulous systems within the Internet of Things (IoT).
At the forum the latest technological advancements in the areas of Edge Intelligence, Edge Computing, Fog Computing and autonomous Cyber-physical Systems will be presented alongside with best practices and experiences gained from recent testbeds and trials. Leading experts from standards-developing organizations, innovators, first movers and early adopters present their newest achievements and discuss open issues.

The Industrial IoT Forum

Future Industrial Internet - Connectivity, Semantics, Communication and Programmability

Nov 8th 2017 at Fraunhofer FOKUS

Latest technological advancements in the areas of Industrial IoT systems, networks, platforms and data analytics will be presented alongside with best practices and experiences gained from latest IIoT testbeds and trials. Although focusing on smart manufacturing/Industrie 4.0 and logistics application domains, the usage of IIoT technologies in the areas of smart energy, smart transportation and smart cities will be covered.


Getting Digital Infrastructures Ready for 5G - First Experiences and the Way Forward

Nov 9th to Nov 10th 2017 at Fraunhofer FOKUS

Last year's edition of the FOKUS FUSECO Forum that was attended by more than 220 delegates from over 30 nations and brought together international network operators, manufacturers and researchers to discuss the ICT infrastructures needed for the upcoming 5G network systems as well as the Industrial Internet. This year we will look at the benefits and risks of this emerging disruptively agile network and service environment by assessing ongoing technology and business proofs of concept and related 5G testbeds around the globe.
