  • Mobile & Wireless Networks: trends, challenges & explorations into SDN use cases May 12 2015 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Xiaobo Long, Chair of Wireless and Mobile Working Group in Open Networking Foundation
    As wireless becomes the primary or even sole access method for more and more people, mobile operators must carry higher volumes of traffic and support more sophisticated network services including 3G/4G/5G cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc. Also they must do so in a cost-effective manner where rapidly increasing capacity demands far exceed the growth in budgets. This requires us to lower the cost of hardware, maximize the utilization from hardware and frequency assets, while reducing operational costs by embracing new techniques such as automation. Software Defined Networking (SDN) offers a logically centralized control model with programmability, and a flow-based paradigm that is suited for highly scalable mobile and wireless networks, from access to backhaul and core. This Webinar presents the use cases for OpenFlow based SDN for mobile and wireless networks. The SDN architectures provide an agile and cost-effective communications methods for addressing the above challenges.

    Nick Kotterman, Product Marketing
    Remote office backup presents numerous challenges, including ever-increasing data volumes, network bandwidth constraints, overtaxed IT administrators and complicated, time-consuming backup processes. Compounding all this is a reliance on older technologies that are inefficient and costly. And the more sites your organization has, the challenges multiply.

    It's time for businesses to rethink remote office backup; one that meets data and regulatory retention requirements, is easy to deploy and maintain, and is secure and cost effective. Its time to look to the cloud.

    Join backup experts Druva to learn how remote office server backup has evolved. Discover how the cloud offers a new, and in most cases, a better approach. In this session you’ll learn:
    - How the latest advancements in cloud storage technology scale globally for enterprises of all sizes
    - Why advances in cloud security models are addressing stringent global security and data privacy issues, including data residency requirements and more
    - How an 'infinite data snapshot model' combined with cost-optimized flexible retention eliminates traditional vendor restrictions.

    Hear real-life use cases of how others are leveraging the cloud for remote server backup. Live Q&A will follow to answer your specific questions.

  • Layered Security Infrastructure: Enterprise Case Studies Recorded: Apr 29 2015 36 mins
    Icaro Vazquez, Senior Product Line Manager, Security
    As bad actors relentlessly continue to take advantage of the many innovations and trends in our current world, network security professionals are realizing that the passive mode of checking for threats is no longer adequate. As BYOD is now the norm rather than the exception in the corporate world and most organizations have a significant presence in the cloud, bad actors are more than happy to take advantage of the new conduits into the corporate network. Therefore, the need to catch, repair and eliminate security threats as early as possible has never been greater. With this in mind, VSS Monitoring has been helping various enterprise customers to deploy an inline layered security infrastructure that provides multiple lines of defense against the bad actors.

    This webinar will present some of the use cases we have been involved in, what were the motivations that led to the deployment of layered security and how a layered security architecture, anchored by VSS Monitoring, allowed enterprises to become more nimble in their never ending fight against bad actors. Join us for a safari tour of an exciting and evolving space!
