The 2016 event in Rome last week was the third time we have held the summit, and included 125 executive experts from leading service providers and vendors around the world. The event included discussions on virtualization, new approaches in an era of software-driven functionality, the evolution and market-readiness of 5G networks, selecting the right open source approach and a whole host of other issues critical to the future of service providers.
As always, it was intense, productive and yeah, the food was pretty good too.
