MPLS SDN Multi-Vendor Interoperability Test Event 2021

Hot Staging: Berlin, July 12-23, 2021

Showcase: Paris, September 28 - October 1, 2021


We are pleased to invite you to our Multi-Vendor MPLS SDN Interoperability Test Event in collaboration with the
MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress 2021 in Paris.

EANTC's showcase 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.

The Congress in Paris has been rescheduled and will be held from September 28 - October 1, 2021. Our Hot Staging will take place from July 12-23, 2021 in Berlin, Germany.

EANTC will focus on 5G transport (slicing, edge computing), data center networking for cloud environment, integration of multiple transport domains (WAN, data center), microwave and packet network synchronization.


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.


Marketing and Publication

The results of this interoperability event will be marketed:

  • Whitepaper - extensive, detailed description of all use cases, test setups and results (positive results by vendor/ solution name, negative results anonymously as "state of the industry"). It will be available free of charge on our website.
  • Live demos - video clips with live demonstrations recorded by participants and EANTC representatives
  • Press releases - by EANTC and participating vendors
