ETSI is pleased to invite you to the first mWT (millimetre Wave Transmission) Plugtests™ event which will take place from 21 January to 24 January 2019. This event will be hosted by ETSI at Sophia Antipolis, France.

This edition of the Plugtests event will focus on proving the ability of Software Defined Network (SDN) to operate from an end to end service point of view.

This is the first time such event will concentrate on the advantages of using a standard Northbound Interface (NBI): the ability to leverage the vast library of existing data models, elimination of most interoperability issues, true multi-vendor/multi-technology operation.

The format of the event will be lab tests conducted in the premises of ETSI.

Any MW and mmW equipment vendor is welcome to participate and shall provide a full domain, including the domain controller and the related MW/mmW equipment (as a single company or in partnership with other companies).

The event also is open to telecom operators wishing to understand the benefits of the SDN technology.
