    Is Your Network Ready for the Busy Season? Comcast Business Recorded: Aug 30 2018 49 mins
    As we head into the 4th quarter, your business needs to be ready for the increased traffic and pressure your network will experience. Holidays, the advent of the football and basketball seasons, back-to-school, vacations, budget planning… In fact, since 2010, the concentration of bandwidth-critical events is higher in Q4 than at any other time of the year (Statista 2018). No matter your industry, the impacts can be felt across the entire business ecosystem. Building a bulwark against the seasonal variation created by increased consumer and commercial activity, and the resulting pressure on your network to meet those demands, can be your best defense.

    Hybrid cloud is shaping a new network reality, and now is the time to ensure your network is ready across all your locations. According to 451 Research, 60 percent of IT environments will reside in the cloud in 2018—up from 45 percent in 2016.The mix of on-premises and cloud-based resources that underpins the hybrid cloud means increased complexity, and legacy networks are simply no longer equipped to meet demands created by bandwidth-intensive environments.

  • Navigating the New, App-Centric Reality
    Navigating the New, App-Centric Reality Comcast Business Recorded: May 24 2018 50 mins
    Legacy MPLS networks weren’t built to optimize network visibility. In an age when nearly 80% of workloads are in the cloud and almost every function is tied to an application, transparency is critical to managing traffic. Gaining the control you need starts with taking an app-first approach.

    Software defined networking (SDN) is critical to gauging the breadth of all your applications and to effectively steering traffic to maximize performance. In “Navigating the New, App-Centric Reality,” our panelists will explore how the internet has changed radically in the past 10-15 years; network and infrastructure challenges; how SDN offers greater control; and more.

    Our panelists are:
    • John Burke, principal research analyst, Nemertes Research, advises key enterprise and vendor clients, conducts and analyzes primary research, and writes thought-leadership pieces across a wide variety of topics.
    • Jody Hagemann, director of product management, Comcast Business Services, focuses on service operations design, new product launch, product-to-product migration, and lifecycle management. Her current role is developing the Comcast Business ActiveCore℠ platform.

    Participants will gain insights into:
    • The landscape of the “new internet”;
    • Case study examples of network limitations;
    • Applications best served by infrastructure type;
    • Application best practices; and
    • The keys to unlocking bandwidth constraints.

    Infrastructure Modernization: Software-Defining Your Business Allan Langfield, Comcast Business & John Burke, Nemertes Research Recorded: Mar 14 2018 50 mins
    Everything evolves, and the current evolution in business speed and performance has been led by the cloud. From data centers to workloads, it’s impacted and shifted the way we process and deliver information. In fact, according to the 2018 Cisco Global Cloud Index, cloud data center traffic will represent 95 percent of total data center traffic by 2021 and SaaS workloads will comprise 75 percent of total cloud workloads.

    In addition, virtualization in the cloud and across your business network serves as a catalyst for greater automation. Taken together, infrastructure modernization and automation are critical to effectively meeting the increasingly rigorous demands to create new customer experiences and operate more effectively.

    Today’s modern businesses require a new foundation for success, and software-defined networks will play a key role.
