Light Reading To Host 'Big Telecom Event' Debuting In June 2014

NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Light Reading, UBM Tech's market-leading online community for the global communications sector, is to host the inaugural Big Telecom Event in Chicago, June 17-18, 2014, to bring real-world, cutting-edge technology demonstrations and insight to the communications service provider executives currently facing some of the toughest decisions of their careers.

Telecom, mobile, cable, datacenter, and large enterprise networking infrastructure operators are reaching critical points in their short-, medium-, and long-term business and networking strategic decision-making processes. The Light Reading organization, in partnership with leading industry organizations such as the Open Networking Foundation (ONF ‒ www.opennetworking.org) and independent technology test facilities, has devised an industry event focused on show floor demonstrations of networking technologies and applications that deliver real insight and tangible value to attendees.

Combining the educational power of interactive conference sessions devised and hosted by Heavy Reading's stable of experienced industry analysts, with multi-vendor interoperability and proof-of-concept networking and application showcases, the event sports the tagline "Specs & Plugs & Rock & Roll." It is geared toward helping attendees better understand concepts such as software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), small cell architectures, next-generation policy and charging, big-data analytics, and mobile network security.

"ONF believes SDN will pervade nearly every aspect of network operators' businesses in a beneficial way, and a show such as the Big Telecom Event, with its focus on proof-of-concept live showcases, will help educate and inspire network operators of all types," stated ONF Executive Director Dan Pitt. "This is the kind of event the industry needs, and we're jazzed to be involved from its inception."

"This event is all about bringing real value to network operator decision-makers and their key supplier partners through an unrivaled mix of show floor displays, incisive conference sessions, and structured, targeted networking opportunities," said Light Reading founder Stephen Saunders. "Big Telecom Event attendees will leave the show with greater insight into the hottest telecom trends and the relevance of those developments to their everyday working lives. And, of course, they'll also have had to chance to share their experiences, and party hard, with other industry go-getters."

"This event stands for everything that we're about – informing and entertaining the telecom community," stated Light Reading Editor-in-Chief Ray Le Maistre. "This will be the standout industry event of 2014. Socks will be knocked off," he added in typical British understatement.
