Virtualizing Your Voice Infrastructure Paul Drew, Metaswitch Networks; Dave Reekie, Metaswitch Networks; Craig Matsumoto, SDNCentral The rapid evolution of standardized commodity computing infrastructure, over the last few years, has created an opportunity to build communications networks in totally new ways. NFV represents a new approach to building networks that will ultimately provide numerous benefits to network operators, including reductions in both capital and operating expenses and the promotion of rapid innovation in the services space. This webinar focuses specifically on the evolution of fixed and mobile multimedia consumer communications services, detailing not only the technology behind virtualizing these services but how network operators are employing NFV to remain competitive in this important market.
Metaswitch is at the forefront of NFV deployments in the telecommunications industry with an innovative IMS core, designed from the ground up to run in the cloud, and a unique, carrier class SBC that can run on COTS hardware or in public or private clouds , along with a carrier class TAS solution re-architected for cloud environments. From multimedia applications to infrastructure, our virtualized network functions have already been deployed in some of the world’s largest network operators to provide VoIP access and interconnect security and interworking along with IMS Core functions and app servers for OTT, VoWiFi and VoLTE service migration. As leaders in the Network Software Provider revolution, our fully-virtualized product portfolio also powers the business unified communications offerings of converged carriers around the globe – and we can do the same for you.

Join our webinar and learn how you can start virtualizing key fixed and mobile multimedia communications services today, increasing scalability and flexibility while dramatically reducing your capital and operational costs: Realizing the promise of NFV.

  • Networking professionals understand that technology is always evolving and must find ways to remain relevant during these times. As the adoption of NETCONF and YANG continue to grow, NEPs and ISVs need an agile model to quickly create management interfaces across any environment.

    This webinar will show how ConfD Basic can help radically reduce the time and resources needed to implement advanced management agent capabilities across equipment and applications. Tail-f experts will discuss the ins and outs of network programmability and how leveraging ConfD Basic can inexpensively deliver critical management functionality along with the key advantages current customers are experiencing. Attendees will learn how ConfD Basic provides:
    •Streamlined Development
    •Robust Network Programmability
    •NETCONF/YANG Management Tools
  • Shopping on-line for cloud-based services is becoming the norm for Enterprises. To run their business CIOs look to cloud-based software applications such as Office 365, Salesforce.com and Box, and data center resources for development and operations in the form of platform- and infrastructure-as-a-service. Plus, enterprises want to consume these products from a variety of cloud providers based on factors such as price and services.

    The days of private, prefab IT and in house custom software are waning.
    This webinar will discuss:
    •The changing consumption habits of modern enterprises
    •How carriers can provide a retail experience for on-demand network connectivity and value-added functions required to ensure the performance and security of cloud-based IT
    •The solution imperatives for doing so profitably and with minimal hassle
  • Why do SPs get into the platform business?
    What platform do they need?
    Importance of self-service portals and zero touch provisioning
    Agile Business Automation, service module creation based on catalogs
    Revenue generation due to faster time to market
    New market opportunity with Virtual Managed Services for SMB
    Summary ESP for cross domain services and business solution
  • NFV has been full of automation and virtualization promise and now is the time to understand the reality of the developments. NFV is not only about Management and Network Orchestration but also understanding the status of the Virtual Network Functions software and the integration with a virtualised network.

    In less than the length of this webinar we will see how a new VoLTE cloud installation including vEPC and vIMS can be built on a cloud platform. The webinar will start with an NFV platform and by means of analytics, engineering rules and policies finish with a VoLTE service and in between we will explain what steps have been made to assist the full automation of this process and indicate where progress is still required.

    Alcatel-Lucent has more experience in NFV and SDN than any other vendor having been first to market with a solution, run over 30 NFV projects, pulled together an ecosystem of over 40 members and an active participant in the ETSI working group meetings.
    During this webinar Phil Tilley and Ted East will highlight the progress made and indicate the lessons learnt and major considerations when making NFV and SDN decisions.
    The presentation and demonstration will be followed with a live Q&A session where attendees can seek further views from the speakers.
  • Ensuring a successful centralization strategy for the Radio Access Network requires many inter-related factors to be taken into account. This webinar will cover:
    -the different architectural options available when centralizing RAN
    -how latency & capacity of the backhaul network impact RAN performance
    -optimising the overall cost-efficiency of the system
  • Over the past year, the ETSI NFV ISG has successfully established Network Functions Virtualisation as the broadly-accepted evolution path and next-gen architecture for carrier network infrastructure, amidst exceptional interest and debate across the entire industry.

    It is time now to look forward for the next year, and in this webinar, Don Clarke will present the current milestone achievements of the ISG, the challenges ahead and the development focus for the Working Groups.
  • Understanding the performance of virtualised network functions - the potential, boundaries and optimum configuration for real-world deployment - is of critical importance to all concerned in the emerging NFV ecosystem.

    In this webinar, Francisco-Javier Ramón will present the current work of the PER Working Group, findings to date and development directions and focus for the coming year within the ETSI NFV ISG.

    Then as Head of Network Virtualisation, GCTO Unit, he will highlight Telefónica's particular interest, introducing the two ISG Proof-of-Concepts which Telefónica is supporting, and further application of NFV in first use-cases such as vCPE.
  • Join NEC's Head of Market Development, Gerry Feeney, as he sets out NEC's vision for the Carrier SDN based upon a combination of SDN and NFV technologies. Learn about the value proposition and find out how NEC's solutions will deliver the Carrier Software-Defined Network. As a leader in the development of SDN and NFV solutions, NEC can point to a number of commercial deployments where customers are already realising the benefits of these technologies. During the webinar you will hear real-life examples/customer case studies based on today's deployment experiences and customer feedback. You will also be able to pose your questions during a live Q/A session.
  • As Executive Director of the Linux Foundation, Jim Zemlin has witnessed open source used as a powerful force for change within the IT industry. Linux now dominates almost every sector of computing; from mobile phones to the world's largest super-computers.

    In this webinar, Jim will give an overview of activities happening in the open source community that can have an impact on accelerating Network Functions Virtualisation.

    In addition to providing an overview of the open source development model and historic analogies where open source has been a vehicle for broad industry change, Jim will provide a brief description of key open source projects and how they relate to NFV.
