EANTC will focus on 5G transport network aspects including leading technologies implemented in fronthaul and backhaul, end-to-end network slicing, traffic engineering, policing, and packet network synchronization, serving 5G network use cases. Additionally, we will test private cloud networking, service assurance, and integrate multiple transport domains such as WAN, data centers, and metro access (microwave).
EANTC's showcase is a well established event beneficial for small and large vendors alike. EANTC as an independent party creates an ecosystem to conduct testing in the most advanced application scenarios addressing service providers’ needs. We exhibit a tangible, lab-validated network showcasing mature as well as the latest advances in different technology areas.

Benefits of Participation
EANTC’s interoperability reports are respected by service providers, raising customer awareness of the state of implementation for innovative network concepts. We describe use case scenarios and design blueprints which service providers can adopt for their network designs. Our reports have helped to kick off network innovation projects, to fulfill RFP requirements with regards to interoperability, and to avoid individual PoCs covering similar technical questions. The initiative provides a unique opportunity to test and troubleshoot interoperability with third-party vendors in a friendly pre-production environment. Participating in the test event improves quality and reduces implementation time in customer projects.
Marketing and Publication
The results of this interoperability event will be marketed:
Test Report - extensive, detailed description of all use cases, test setups and results (positive results by vendor/solution name, negative results anonymously as "state of the industry"). It will be available free of charge on our website and will be distributed on the first day of the conference in Paris
Live demos - live demonstrations by participants and EANTC representatives at EANTC showcase booth in Paris
Press releases - by EANTC and participating vendors
Social Media (LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube)
We hope that this initiative is beneficial to you and look forward to your participation!
