EdgeConneXHerndon, VA – April 18, 2016EdgeConneX®, specializing in global data center solutions at the edge of the network, announces today that its chief architect and vice president of innovation, Phill Lawson-Shanks, will participate on a panel at the 2016 Datacenter Dynamics Enterprise conference. This annual two-day event takes place April 19-20, 2016 at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City.

On Wednesday, April 20 at 11:40 AM, Mr. Lawson-Shanks will join Gabe Cole from Open-IX® to discuss “How Future-Proof is Your Network Architecture?” This panel will explore topics surrounding the construction of modern network architecture, including the impact new technologies such as Software-defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) have on a facility’s business agility and scalability. During this session, panelists will also discuss current technology enabling today’s networks while sharing expert predictions into what advancements the future may hold.

“In this constantly evolving landscape where ‘the network is the data center’, understanding the major roles of SDN and NFV is the key to unlocking a wealth of information that can enable business growth as well as continued success for our enterprise customers,” explains Mr. Lawson-Shanks.
