Held in the heart of Europe during the UEFA European Football Championship 2016, the second OPNFV Summit was a resounding success and, unsurprisingly, given the football fervour gripping Europe, quite a few footballing motifs and themes ran through the event, not the least being the wearing of OPNFV-themed football scarves by many of the delegates! This year's Summit proved that OPNFV is not a one-off one-goal wonder but a growing team with a dream that is attracting more and more players. Some 620 delegates from across the global NFV ecosystem attended the event and a further 300 attendees joined the Design Summit. The OPNFV announced and introduced several important new members of the organisation and, based on the remarkable vibrancy and immediacy of the Berlin gathering, has announced that the third Summit will be held in Asia in 2017. If, as expected, it is even bigger than Berlin, it will be something to see and a "must attend" for those in the wider communications community who are participating in the once-in-a -lifetime transformation of the world's comms networks.
