SlideshowPics: SDN & NFV in the Mile High City

DENVER -- NFV & Carrier SDN -- Attendees at Light Reading's NFV & Carrier SDN conference were treated to two days of information and insight about the way network virtualization is transforming the service provider industry.

They also got to visit Denver, one of America's best cities, nicknamed the "Mile High City" for its altitude, and not because the state of Colorado legalized marijuana in 2014.

The conference featured a Women in Comms breakfast, which was open to men, and which I would have been happier about attending if it did not start at 7 a.m. I'm delighted to advance the cause of women in the workplace, but I'd prefer to do it later in the day.

To see some of what we saw while gallivanting around town, click on the image below to launch a slideshow.

Only the first slide features anything to do with NFV, SDN or networking technology. For more on those subjects, see the exhaustive coverage by the Light Reading team, at the links below. But first click on the slideshow and have fun.

 

Pets vs. Cattle
Tom Anschutz, distinguished member of the AT&T Inc. technical staff, explained that we treat our networking equipment like pets, when we should treat them like cattle.

Re: Slide 6 - Gift basket
Ah yes, moms are really into the pretty"presentation" of gifts. My mom would be proud of the wrapped toilet tissue i'm sure. My dad probably no so much unless it was a wrapped power tool.

Re: Slide 6 - Gift basket
Fair enough! Although I did get a lot of "essentials" in my Christmas stocking as a kid...yay, socks again!

Re: Slide 6 - Gift basket
But did your mother ever send or receive a roll of toilet paper as a gift?

Slide 6 - Gift basket
I disagree, Mitch, my mother always taught me it's as much about the presentation as the gift itself. ;)
