The 2022 Edition: a Successful Come Back after the Pandemic

The 23rd Edition of the MPLS, SD & AI Net World Congress took place from 5th to 7th April 2022 at the Palais des Congrès de Paris as a hybrid event (in-person in Paris and live streaming online).

The return to the in-person event was a high success and confirmed the Congress as a unique venue for sharing ideas from across the industry. MPLS SD & AI Net World remains the place to be for a preview of the next big thing.

Particular attention was paid in 2022 to SRv6 deployments and next steps.

Experts described the challenges and solutions of the migration:
  • How to enhance the SRv6 base specification with the addition of Segment ID (SID) compression and the definition of more advanced behaviours
  • Gateways for SRv6 and MPLS interworking
  • SRv6 SRH compression principles

“The 2022 Congress was the opportunity to share a status of some of the latest SRv6 evolutions and a significant overview of different deployments and use cases in the Service Provider, OTT and mobile networks spaces”
appreciated Bruno Decraene, Orange, Chair IETF Spring WG.
