Time: 10:00 – 11:00

Over 40% of all mobile applications depend on the positioning delivered by Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). In fact, millions of people use Location Based Services (LBS) everyday, creating a wealth of business opportunities. Galileo, the European GNSS, opens the door to new possibilities for mobile applications, offering enhanced location information for mobile devices. Presented by the European GNSS Agency, the Galileo Power Hour will highlight the latest trends in location-enabled consumer applications and Galileo contribution to freely available ubiquitous location for developers and users.


 Theatre B Session include:


Stay protected, stay connected – it’s all coming together for a tech revolution

Protecting & Connecting
Time: 10:00 – 11:00

Stay protected, stay connected. It’s sound advice for you and for your systems. The insatiable demand for increasingly smaller electronics and constant connectivity between devices challenges us all. Applying 115 years of industry perspective, we highlight solutions that are making some of the most popular products possible today and tomorrow.


Time: 11:30 – 12:30

Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) is a new open source project focused on accelerating the evolution of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). OPNFV will establish a carrier-grade, integrated, open source reference platform that industry peers will build together to advance the evolution of NFV and to ensure consistency, performance and interoperability among multiple open source components. Because multiple open source NFV building blocks already exist, OPNFV will work with upstream projects to coordinate continuous integration and testing while filling development gaps.


OpenDaylight: An Open Source Platform for SDN, Network Programability, and NFV

Time: 14:30 – 15:30

OpenDaylight is an open source platform for network programmability to enable SDN and create a solid foundation for NFV for networks at any size and scale. The community is comprised of hundreds of developers working across company lines to collaborate on an open, common architecture for SDN and NFV to pave the way for interoperability. The project is aggressively working on its third software release, Lithium, aimed at users who want to leverage SDN in true production environments. This Power Hour will provide attendees an overview of the open source SDN platform, discuss what’s coming in the Lithium platform release, and provide a forum for discussion as the networking industry shifts toward open source in software-defined networks.
