MPLS SDN Interoperability Test 2023

 

We invite all interested vendors to our Multi-Vendor MPLS SDN Interoperability Test in collaboration with the
MPLS SD & AI Net World Congress 2023. The testing will take place from March 13-24, 2022 in Berlin, Germany.
The results will be published and presented live at the Congress from April 18-20, 2022 in Paris.

EANTC will focus on 5G transport network aspects including leading technologies implemented in fronthaul and backhaul, end-to-end network slicing, traffic engineering, policing, and packet network synchronization, serving 5G network use cases.

Additionally, we will test private cloud networking, service assurance, and integrate multiple transport domains such as WAN, data centers, and metro access (microwave).

EANTC's test event is a well established event beneficial for small and large vendors alike. EANTC as an independent party creates an ecosystem to conduct testing in the most advanced application scenarios addressing service providers’ needs. We exhibit a tangible, lab-validated network showcasing mature as well as the latest advances in different technology areas.

 

Benefits of Participation

EANTC’s interoperability reports are respected by service providers, raising customer awareness of the state of implementation for innovative network concepts. We describe use case scenarios and design blueprints which service providers can adopt for their network designs. Our reports have helped to kick off network innovation projects, to fulfill RFP requirements with regards to interoperability, and to avoid individual PoCs covering similar technical questions. The initiative provides a unique opportunity to test and troubleshoot interoperability with third-party vendors in a friendly pre-production environment. Participating in the test event improves quality and reduces implementation time in customer projects.
