Call for Presentation Abstract Proposals

Submission due date is June 6, 2016!

Service providers and digital enterprises both operate a network-centric business model, with revenue tied directly to the flow of traffic to support services and applications across private and public networks. Isocore’s 2016 Net-Centric conference is where networking thought leaders gather to share both cutting-edge technology developments as well as operational best practices. Isocore 2016 is the must-go venue for technologists and executives from network operators, service and cloud providers, network equipment and software developers, web companies, system integrators, and everyone in the networking industry.
