Nokia experts will talk on a broad range of topics, but some noteworthy topics include:

  • 800GE routing to deliver sustainable IP network traffic growth
  • Routers for scalable IP/Optical Convergence
  • Wavelength Services delivered over IP/MPLS
  • Going beyond just managing optics, but to the coordination of the IP and Optical layers

Other sessions cover SRv6 enhancements and deployments, Network Programmability, Security, AI & ML, 5G Architectures, Open RAN, Network Slicing and Automation.

Nokia is a diamond sponsor and will have strong a presence throughout the conference week, kicking off with a keynote speaker session, followed by a variety of notable speakers covering key topics throughout the conference agenda.

In the exhibition hall, the Nokia booth nr 105 will have knowledgeable subject matter experts in attendance to facilitate engagement on your, and industry, resonant topics.
