More than 1,000 professionals from 280+ organizations based in 35 countries have registered for GEN15, which is supported by more than 120 sponsors, event partners, and participating companies.

“It is a pleasure to welcome such a large number of professionals across the Carrier Ethernet and emerging Third Network service & technology community to our annual global gathering at GEN15,” said Nan Chen, President of the MEF. “The support GEN15 has enjoyed has been tremendous! We look forward to an exciting week in Dallas as well as to sharing the results of the conference with the broader community following the close of the show.”
GEN15 is focusing on enabling the future of agile, assured, and orchestrated services that are powered by CE 2.0, LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), SDN, and NFV. This focus is closely associated with the advancement of the Third Network paradigm that combines the on-demand agility and ubiquity of the Internet with the performance and security assurances of CE 2.0. New Third Network services provide a dynamic, cloud-centric experience with user-directed control over network resources and assured connectivity orchestrated between both physical and virtual service endpoints.
Three key themes are shaping the development of the GEN15 program and are also manifested in discussions at the popular Proof-of-Concept Showcase demonstrations.
