Cities around the world are transforming their increasingly congested landscapes into safer, smarter, and more sustainable environments that better serve their residents and visitors alike. These “smart cities”, are enabling a continuous exchange of information between devices, infrastructure, networks and people, creating immense possibilities for the broader Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem and the communications industry.
Here in the U.S., recent partnerships between the Federal government and private industry are helping to advance smart city solutions and deployments including the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge and the recently announced White House Advanced Wireless Research Initiative. We’re just scratching the surface of the innovations to come.
But what truly makes a city smart? What applications and solutions are currently being deployed and what more will be developed? What types of critical network infrastructure needs to exist in order to enable a more connected society? What role will fiber, sensors, LPWANs, densified small cells and DAS, massive MIMO, and other solutions play as these networks deploy? How can we protect the data being transmitted around the city? What lessons have been learned thus far and are there business opportunities and models to support expectations of market growth? And how best can local governments and citizens be educated to understand the importance of smart city initiatives and potential return on investment?
Speakers from AT&T and SAP will delve into these questions and more during the live webcast. We also welcome your questions, so get ready to bring them into the mix.

Um im Zeitalter der digitalen Transformation überleben zu können ist eine klare Service Orientierung unabdingbar. Im Fokus steht die zu erbringende Leistung bzw. der Nutzen den sie erzeugt. Die sogenannten „Digital Natives des 21. Jahrhunderts“ wie amazon, Tesla oder airbnb nutzen die Mechanismen des digitalen Zeitalters nicht nur um neue Märkte zu erschließen, sondern auch um nachhaltig die Spielregeln traditioneller Märkte zu verändern.
Wer mithalten möchte, kann nicht mehr dem alt-bewährten Build-to-Order Ansatz folgen. Überleben werden jene Unternehmen, die es schaffen, Services schnell, agil und kostengünstig zu produzieren. Über Jahre gewachsene, hybride IT Landschaften machen die Umsetzung dieser Aufgabe aber nicht leichter.
Lernen Sie in diesem Webcast, was sich hinter „Service Design Thinking“ verbirgt und welchen Weg es gibt, um diese Herausforderungen erfolgreich zu meistern.
SD-WAN can dramatically reduce cost and increases the ability to rapidly bring new services online, connecting users to all types of applications, and speeding up time to market. But the idea of re-architecting the WAN can be daunting and the decision to adopt an SD-WAN solution can be a difficult one.
Join renowned network expert Ethan Banks, Co-Founder of Packet Pushers, and Rolf Muralt, VP Products Management SD-WAN at Silver Peak, in a webinar that discusses the SD-WAN market, lessons learned, and what features to be on the lookout for as you make your decision. They will discuss issues around technology selection and deployment, including:
· How a zero-touch, hybrid or SD-WAN can leverage multiple connectivity forms
· Ways to prioritize and route traffic across different connections
· Quality of Service (QoS), and how to maintain 100% uptime
· Best practices for transitioning with minimal impact on budget and resources
· Real customer examples that demonstrate different deployment stage and benefits
Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.
Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
•Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
•Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
•Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
•Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts
Applications - the lifeblood of modern business - can be in a sorry state of affairs given today's forced alignment with server, OS, and storage boundaries. This can not only cause deployment delays and complexity, but it also results in underutilized hardware and inflated operational costs. There is a drive to embrace new technologies and methodologies in the enterprise, but this presents significant challenges. Limited application-awareness at the infrastructure level makes it nearly impossible to deliver on the promised SLAs and the tight coupling of applications and underlying operating software (OS or hypervisors) compromises application portability as well as developer productivity.
A growing number of enterprises are turning to application containers to support more efficient and effective development and deployment in an application-centric IT paradigm. By abstracting applications from the underlying infrastructure, containers can simplify application deployment, and enable seamless portability across machines and clouds. Containers can also enable significant cost savings by consolidating multiple applications per machine without compromising performance or predictability. Join us to learn more about container adoption in the enterprise and how a container-based server and storage virtualization environment can help take your software-defined datacenter transformation to the next level of an application-defined datacenter.

The constant barrage of application connectivity and security policy change requests, not to mention the relentless battle against cyber-attacks have made the traditional approach to managing security untenable. In order keep your business both agile and secure – across today’s highly complex and diverse enterprise networks – you must focus your security management efforts on what matters most – the applications that power your business.
