The 5th IEEE Conference on Network Functions Virtualization and Software Defined Networking (IEEE NFV-SDN 2019) will be held this year in Dallas, Texas, USA on 12-14 November  2019.

In addition to the latest NFV and SDN concepts and mechanisms, the 2019 IEEE NFV-SDN conference will focus on first operational results related to virtualized networks functions (VNFs) as well as designing, describing, orchestrating, and managing new applications made of VNFs which smarten networks and their usage.

We looking forward to see you in Dallas.
