The Multiple Faces of Mobility and the Impacts on your Network

Paul Lewis, Network Consultant, Networks First Limited
Whether it is the "bring your own devices" trend or the challenge of providing a wireless network that meets expectations, the increasingly mobile nature of the workplace is a challenge for IT.

This presentation explores key aspects of the more mobile workplace including:

- Whether the modern WLAN does away with the need for a Wired LAN?

- Do I need to provide Wireless LAN in my remote and/or home offices?

- How do I secure the mixture of devices (including BYO) and users?

- And how do I retain a control over my ICT and comms strategy in the face of the increased consumerisation of IT?

  • Pick up your smartphone, tap a button, and get a lift to wherever you need to go. That’s the idea behind Lyft, the San Francisco-based company whose service is now available in five major metropolitan areas.

    “We wouldn’t be able to operate at this capacity without a product like RingCentral,” says Adam Fishman, Director of Growth and Operations. “We needed something that was fast, scalable, and had all the features we were missing.”

    With RingCentral, Lyft has realized an exponential growth in productivity, including:

    -An increase in call-back rates from 5% to nearly 50%
    -More than 100% improvement in outbound call volume

    Watch the video to understand the role cloud communications plays in turning a good idea into something revolutionary.
  • Troubleshooting performance problems in today’s networks and data centers is only getting more complex:

    •Growth of 10G links
    •Virtualization
    •Cloud computing - all bring their own analysis challenges.

    Last thing you need are hard-to-use tools that are complex in themselves or require extensive training before you can effectively use them.

    Please join us for a free webinar where Tony Fortunato will talk about these issues and present a live demo of the OptiView® XG Network Analysis Tablet.

    XG expedites network and application problem solving by automating root cause analysis and providing guided troubleshooting to address problem areas - anywhere on the network.
  • Network Managers have a tall order in IT organizations today. Typically, they are tasked with two conflicting business directives:

    1. Deliver optimal end-user experience for networked applications

    2. Reduce the operational cost of the network, or reduce the IT budget

    But the knee jerk approach of “throwing bandwidth at the problem” while potentially improving end user experience, is hardly the answer to cost management and network optimization.

    In this webinar, Chris Greer will discuss the challenges that result from the common approaches utilized today in capacity planning and, outline a new way, comprised of 4 actionable steps to optimizing the bandwidth you may already have.
  • Join us this week for a special 30-minute live session on how RingCentral integrates with Zendesk for improved workflow and increased productivity.

    Tune in every Friday for RingCentral Live. We’ll tour the RingCentral interface, discuss the latest innovations and features available on the RingCentral platform, and share best practices on leveraging cloud communications for your business. This session also features a live demo of RingCentral Office and an open Q&A session led by a Sales Engineer.
  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

    As healthcare systems transition from “fee for service” to “fee for value” reimbursement models, there is an increasing focus to drive down 30-day re-admission rates, particularly for high risk patients. To this end, Sutter Health is piloting Project RED (Re-engineered Discharge) which leverages predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and then prescribes alternative discharge workflows aimed at lowering the risk of re-admission.

    Join us as Kristen Wilson-Jones, Sutter RD&D CTO, shares how Sutter Health has leveraged MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in an orchestrated plecosystem of technologies to power Project RED by enabling real-time patient risk scoring, clinical workflow management and bi-directional integration with Epic.

    + How Sutter Health is lowering 30-day re-admission rates by re-engineeing clinical workflows
    + The need for connectivity to enable workflow re-design
    + Best practice in moving from an application-centric to a data object-centric connectivity approach
