About the Conference
The 2nd International Science and Technology Conference «Modern Network Technologies, MoNeTec - 2018» gathers representatives of the international scientific community, research departments of corporations, start-ups, representatives of industry and business, development institutions, and public authorities to discuss promising and relevant technologies in the field of computer networks, virtualization of network resources, and cloud computing.

SDN (Software-Defined Networking) and NFV (Network Function Virtualization) are key technologies used to build modern computer networks and information infrastructures in general. Now, these technologies are used in practice in the World, including Russia. Nevertheless, many problems for research, development and practical application still remain.
