Call for Presentation Abstract Proposals

Submission due date is August 14, 2018! Extend to Aug. 24!

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 2018 Net-Centric conference is where networking thought leaders gather to share both cutting-edge technology developments as well as operational best practices. The Net-Centric 2018 effort is collaboration to assist in bringing clarity and direction to a highly important 5G & leading-edge technologies. Isocore 2018 is the must-go venue for technologists and executives from network operators, service and cloud providers, network equipment and software developers, media companies, system integrators, and everyone in the open networking industry. The conference will be held in Washington DC area during October 7th through 9th. The Key notes start on Monday October 8th.
