Of course, there are plenty of good reasons to visit The Hague!

For those who’ve never been there before, The Hague (Den Haag in Dutch) is a city located in the western coast of the Netherlands. It is actually the seat of the Dutch government, but the city is not the capital of the Netherlands, which is Amsterdam.

More interestingly for the Telecom industry, The Hague will be hosting, for the first time, the SDN World Congress from October, 10th to 14th.

This is one of the major events in EMEAR to hear directly from key customers and vendors about latest SDN and NFV deployments and innovations.

As every year, Cisco is lining up some great speakers to share with you their industry insights. See below the list of Cisco speaking slots:

Come to our booth (located on Level 0) to see live demonstrations of the innovative services being deployed using our open and modular architecture that combines SDN, NFV and open source technologies:

  • One demo pod will be showcasing Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) enabled by Tail-f, an industry- leading orchestration platform deployed in many service provider networks today. It provides end-to-end lifecycle service automation to design and deliver high- quality services faster and more easily. Learn how easy they are to adapt into existing deployments to accelerate service provider revenues while reducing their costs.
  • The other demo pod is showcasing Cisco and Intel NFV Infrastructure QuickStart solution. The Cisco, Intel, and Red Hat partnership on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) provides a unique environment, in labs and more, for fast-track virtualization adoption and innovation. NFV reduces proof-of-concept (POC) time from weeks to days with a choice of Cisco or customer hosted activities.

We hope to see you there!

Last but not least, if you have some time left before or after the conference, I recommend you to visit the Mauritshuis museum which exhibits many paintings by Dutch masters, such as Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn.
