(Nasdaq, Helsinki: CTL1V), Netcracker Technology Corp. , Nokia Networks , Tail-f Systems , TM Forum and UBiqube Plc shared their insights and experiences.

Re: Beer Three beers and three pies for breakfast and I'm napping 'til lunch. 

Which actually sounds like a great morning, especially if lunch involves more beer.

Re: Beer Meat fruit. That's wrong. But in a good way.

Re: Beer I was trying to fit in with the locals by having three beers + three pies for breakfast. I don't know how Ray does this on a daily basis!

Re: Loved the energy in panel discussions I agree, Jane! I think the Women's panel set the tone for a lively day of discussions. It's rare to see so much audience involvement and debate all day at a conference. It shows there are clearly different ways of approaching NFV/SDN and different mindsets on what works best. Love seeing all the dialouge around it.

Brew haha Wait -- is that a Beck's that Mr. Brown is drinking? That's almost treasonous. And I won't even mention that it's sitting next to a ... Bud.

pics The carriage reminds me of the opening of Parliament that I saw many years ago, though I don't recall motorcyles on either side. Perhaps they were less security-minded back then.
