Every company needs to be a technology company to survive in the application economy. Business and customer expectations are immediate and changing on a daily basis. This continuous and disruptive flow of new demand requires an effective approach for managing and consuming centralized resource management insights. Organizations have improved their investment review and approval process but it is more important to determine if an organization “can” take on the desired effort.
This Webcast will focus on how resource management processes play a key role in potentially providing the insights necessary to answer the “can we” question that must be asked before allowing any new project or program for inclusion in the enterprise portfolio.
•Do we have the resource capacity?
•Do we have the resource capability?
•Can we supplement our existing resources with 3rd-party resources?
•What are the resource cost comparisons and ramifications?

With the explosion of movies and TV programs available to consumers on any device, traditionally siloed content management systems are straining to keep up. Complicating things further is auxiliary content around each title such as poster artwork, chapter thumbnails, supplementary videos. Throw in to the mix music, e-books and digital comics and the content management challenges become near impossible. Unifying the content management systems is key to solving these challenges, and Cisco Videoscape Media Suite is the unified CMS leading the way.

Today we see video traffic doubling each year and becoming the large majority of the traffic within a few years. Video traffic may well account for 70-90% of all traffic.
Video providers today are all facing some challenges that will be even more impactful as video continues to grow. They can be categorized as follows:
-The need to Reduce Cost
-The drive to Increase Revenues
-The requirement to improve the User Experience
-These are all occurring in an environment with video growing dramatically but facing issues of monetization and profitability.
Given the above as a backdrop what and how can you address these issues both from a technical as well as business perspective? How can new emerging video processing offering help address these issues? What if any impact will they have on the profitability and the user experience?

Mobile operators are moving to all-IP LTE architectures in order to cost-effectively meet consumer demand for advanced voice, video, and messaging services. This migration is complex and challenging and operators need an architecture that is both flexible and capable in order to evolve at an acceptable pace while preserving service quality and reliability.
Learn how to enable mobile operators to efficiently migrate to an intelligent next-generation mobile network for the optimized delivery of advanced voice, video, and SMS services.

Learn about techniques that are proving to improve profitability of Mobile Backhaul networks by:
+ Reducing OPEX by as much as 70% via backhaul network efficiency gains
+ Scaling networks on-demand to meet 100 times the traffic
+ Simplifying network operations by unifying the network to backhaul any multi-vendor radio over any media
+ Reducing the complexity and cost of operating, deploying, and scaling backhaul of multivendor, multigenerational Radio Access Networks (RANs)
+ Optimizing architecture with specific network designs to meet unique customer needs in this session
Mobile Backhaul networks continue to strain under the load of exponential Mobile Internet traffic growth. To alleviate the resulting financial pressure of accompanying increases in operating expenses, as well as to scale the networks to meet the ever increasing mobile broadband demand, operators must optimize and cost effectively overhaul these networks. Upgrading the Radio Access Network (RAN) is arguably the most critical investment mobile operators are making in 2010-2012 as they migrate from 2G to 3G+ to improve OPEX, increase teledensity, and unlock additional "Mobile Internet" revenue opportunities.

By 2015, there will be over 5 billion wireless consumer devices and 400 million mobile-only Internet users with global mobile data traffic growing to over 3.6 exabytes per month. Service providers are under pressure to reduce data delivery costs and simplify network operations, while increasing revenue opportunities. Network evolutions, advanced mobile devices, and unlimited data plans are increasing the costs of managing this tidal wave of mobile data traffic. Cisco expects the signaling and control plane impact to be even larger than the bearer plane therefore significantly affecting policy – which becomes instrumental in making money and therefore becomes mission critical.
Is your policy solution ready to handle this mobile broadband tidal wave?
Join us to learn more about Policy and Charging Control solution that provides you with the ability to deliver dynamic, scalable, and customized mobile services to customers -- quickly, reliably, and cost-effectively.
