  • 5G Networks: How to Prepare & What it Means for the Mobile Network Industry
    5G Networks: How to Prepare & What it Means for the Mobile Network Industry Ahmed Banafa, Lindsay Notwell, Upkar Dhaliwal & Mansoor Hanif Recorded: Feb 20 2018 58 mins
    The advent of 5G mobile network technology is upon us, and implementation is quickly approaching.

    For mobile network providers, vendors and enterprises, achieving a 5G version will require new technology innovations for scalability, efficiency and security. For consumers, it means a whole new wave of digital customer experience.

    These next-generation networks will no doubt be in high demand for improving latency and bandwidth, but with more people connected than ever before, what are the potential security implications or concerns for both the enterprise and the consumer?

    Join this expert panel moderated by Ahmed Banafa, Faculty member at SJSU & IoT Expert. He will be joined by expert panelists Lindsay Notwell, VP of 5G Strategy, Cradlepoint, Upkar Dhaliwal, System Architect, Future Wireless Technologies, and Mansoor Hanif, Director of Converged Networks and Innovation, BT.

  • Cloud Automation in Telecommunications: Evolution or Revolution?
    Cloud Automation in Telecommunications: Evolution or Revolution? Omar Alassil, Kalyanjeet Gogoi, Sachin Venkatrao, Umair Zahid & Dimitris Vasilaras Recorded: Feb 15 2018 60 mins
    With the recent advances in the telco domain such as virtualization, cloudification, software-defined everything, network slicing and IoT, telcos moving into the cloud face a fundamental challenge on how to take benefit of things that these technologies provide such as automation and machine learning. This poses a question on whether automating the network is something that can be achieved from day one or whether it should be taken as a step-by-step approach.

    In this webinar, we will be exploring various tranches that can be and should be automated to support this journey. We will also explore the challenges around them and the industry readiness for a fully automated telco cloud.

    Join us on this expert panel to hear the views from both sides: operators and vendors.

    Moderator: Omar Alassil, Cloud & Data Center Solutions Lead, Nokia Global Services
    Panelists: Kalyanjeet Gogoi, Cloud Portfolio Innovation Lead, Nokia Global Services, Sahin Chickballapur Venkatrao, CTO GS Cloud/Data Center Services, Nokia, Umair Zahid, Cloud Automation & Infrastructure Lead, Three UK, and Dimitris Vasilaras, E2E Cloud Solutions Lead, Three UK
  • Networking in the Container Age
    Networking in the Container Age JR Rivers, Cofounder and CTO of Cumulus Networks Recorded: Feb 13 2018 60 mins
    Container based applications are exploding in popularity as they simplify and speed up application development and deployment. Thankfully, technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, and Mesos help to orchestrate and manage the containers. But with their dynamic nature, how do operations teams get their heads wrapped around inter container connectivity? How do they get full visibility across the entire fabric? How do they understand what was, or was not, working 10 minutes ago and why?

    In this webcast, you’ll learn about the popular container networking models and the pros and cons of each. You’ll also see how to track each container’s identity and bandwidth, how to simplify network port mapping, and realize the benefits of telemetry analysis through the entire fabric for enhanced troubleshooting.

    Orchestration tools for Linux containers can work in concert with Linux networking tools to help operationalize container based applications -- it’s just common sense. Come join us to find out how to make this a reality in your environment.

  • Fibre Channel Performance: Congestion, Slow Drain, and Over-Utilization, Oh My!
    Fibre Channel Performance: Congestion, Slow Drain, and Over-Utilization, Oh My! Ed Mazurek, Cisco, Earl Apellanes, Broadcom, David Rogers, Teledyne LeCroy Recorded: Feb 6 2018 66 mins
    Today's Fibre Channel SANs are tasked with reliably delivering huge amounts of data with almost zero latency in an environment with a large variance of end device capabilities. Fibre Channel is a lossless network protocol but what ramifications does that have? What is considered a good SAN design and what are best practices? What situations can lead to suboptimal performance? How can a device that is not performing well affect the performance of devices even on different parts of the SAN? Can a device that is returning credits without delay affect the SAN just like a device that is returning credits slowly?

    Get answers to these questions and more in this live FCIA webcast where you’ll learn:

    •How Fibre Channel achieves a lossless data delivery
    •The definition of "slow drain“
    •Basic slow drain indications and what they mean
    •“Over” Utilization - How a device that isn't "slow drain" by the typical definition can affect a SAN in a similar fashion as a slow drain device
    •How to prevent, Identify, and resolve performance problems

    Register today for this live event. Our experts will be on hand to answer your questions.
  • FC vs. iSCSI
    FC vs. iSCSI Fred Knight, NetApp, John Kim, SNIA ESF Chair, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, SNIA ESF Vice Chair, NetApp Recorded: Jan 31 2018 63 mins
    In the enterprise, block storage typically handles the most critical applications such as database, ERP, product development, and tier-1 virtualization. The dominant connectivity option for this has long been Fibre Channel SAN (FC-SAN), but recently many customers and block storage vendors have turned to iSCSI instead. FC-SAN is known for its reliability, lossless nature, 2x FC speed bumps, and carefully tested interoperability between vendors. iSCSI is known for running on ubiquitous Ethernet networks, 10x Ethernet speed bumps, and supporting commodity networking hardware from many vendors.

    Because, FCoE also delivers increasing performance as Ethernet speeds increase – and, Fibre Channel also delivers increasing performance as FC speeds increase. Historically, FC delivered speed bumps at a more rapid interval (2x bumps), while Ethernet delivered their speed bumps at a slower pace (10x bumps), but that has changed recently with Ethernet adding 2.5G, 5G, 25G, 40G, and 50G to the traditional 1G, 10G, 100G timeline.

    As the storage world moves to more flash and other non-volatile memory, more cloud, and more virtualization (or more containers), it’s time to revisit one of the great IT debates: Should you deploy Fibre Channel or iSCSI? Attend this SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum webcast to learn:
    •Will Fibre Channel or iSCSI deliver faster performance? Does it depend on the workload?
    •How is the wire speed race going between FC and iSCSI? Does anyone actually run iSCSI on 100GbE? When will 128Gb Fibre Channel arrive?
    •Can any server or storage array actually support more than 32Gb/s or 40Gb/s speeds?
    •Do Linux, Windows, or hypervisors have a preference?
    •Is one really easier [to install/manage] than the other, or are they just different?
    •How does the new NVMe over Fabrics protocol affect this debate?

    Join SNIA experts as they compare FC vs. iSCSI and argue in an energetic yet friendly way about their differences and merits of each.
