    Cost-Benefit Analysis Series [Ep.4]

    Moving to the cloud delivers many benefits, albeit at the expense of IT losing some control. Agility, scalability, and speed to market are among the most consistent benefits.

    But what about cost? For years, moving to the cloud didn't deliver the anticipated cost reductions IT leaders were promised, in large part because those savings were expected to come from layoffs. In some cases, it even increased costs.

    But as companies become more comfortable in the cloud, with integrations, training, and relationship processes established, costs are coming down. In this webinar, learn what companies are actually spending on licensing, operational costs, and more.

    You'll learn:

    *What is the average cost of cloud UC and cloud contact center solutions?
    *Though monthly subscriptions are becoming more steady across providers, IT support costs are not. Which platforms require the most and least IT support?
    *What types of companies are seeing cost savings when they move to the cloud?
    *What is the outlook for cloud adoption in both contact centers and for employees through UC applications?

    In recent years, the subject of how we manage and control our networks has become more and more critical. Nowhere is this more true than in businesses where the rise of cloud applications forces a constant struggle for network resources. As service providers you are caught in a constant struggle to provide critical applications, guarantee their quality of service, whilst also managing costs. SD-WAN is one tool that has emerged to tackle these challenges, and VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud has risen to be one of the leading global suppliers of this new technology.

    Join VMware SD-WAN experts and analysts from the Cavell group to discuss the role of SD-WAN in the service provider market in Europe, with a specific focus on certain applications like Unified Communications. You will from the latest Cavell Enterprise Research, hear use cases of VMware SD-WAN partners, practical examples of SD-WAN deployments, and how you can harness this new technology to drive your business to new heights. As the recent crisis demonstrates, the old answers for what to do with networks are not fit for the new cloud world we find ourselves in, and service providers need to make sure they stay ahead of the curve.

  • Keeping Customers Connected – Challenge or Opportunity for Service Providers?
    Keeping Customers Connected – Challenge or Opportunity for Service Providers?
    Richard Brehm (VP, Technical Services @ IR) | Bill Haskins (Sr. Analyst & Partner UC at Wainhouse Research) Jun 17 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Due to the uncertainty COVID-19 has caused, many organizations are leading with caution – which includes travel suspended, new hire freezes and reduction in any unnecessary spending.

    So what does this mean for service providers as they look to support their customers through this uncertain time?

    Companies that were able, moved their entire workforce to remote environments. Unfortunately, many of these organizations do not have the necessary tools to support this new environment. With a sudden and rapid increase in VPN logins, video calls and conferences, in addition to network and bandwidth limitations, more UC-related issues are occurring.

    According to Wainhouse Research, when surveying IT decision makers, “nearly the entire survey panel (94%) indicates that their organization has made changes to the ways their organization’s workforce communicates and collaborates.”

    This means service providers can help their customers adapt and thrive in a situation where many businesses will fail. To do this, service providers should ensure they go beyond their SLAs agreements to retain and attract new customers.
  • Best Practices For Architecting Robust BGP Routing Policies
    Best Practices For Architecting Robust BGP Routing Policies
    Shawn Morris, VP - Systems, Applications, and Software, Global IP Network at NTT Jun 17 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    BGP disruptions happen frequently, generally by accident. But BGP can be hijacked for more malicious intent such as spying, data interception, or as a sort of denial of service attack. It is estimated that so far about half of the internet is more protected due to heavy hitters like NTT Ltd.’s Global IP Network division adopting BGP improvements.

    So, what actually makes good routing policies "good"?

    The telecoms industry has mostly focused on teaching each other how to implement BGP features in their networks, but there has been very little dialogue on how to design robust policies. Many global carriers do not even educate their customers on how to use and take advantage of them. In this webinar, NTT and the Global IP Network will offer a conceptual model to look at routing policies, offer terminology to help discuss them, and analyze routing policy design patterns and best practices.

    Join the webinar to:
    •Understand the basic concepts of BGP
    •Learn best practices to build robust BGP Routing Policies
    •Review the experience of NTT and the Global IP Network



    Shawn Morris originally joined NTT as an IP engineer for the Global IP Network in 1999. Over time he rose to the role of Sr. Director of IP Development, overseeing network architecture and testing and qualification of IP and DWDM network technologies. In his current role as VP of Systems, Applications, and Software, he oversees the development of the Global IP Network’s industry-leading SDN controller (GUMS), His organization is also responsible for developing the company’s contributions to open source networking tools (IRRd v4, BGPalerter) and in-house network insight and big data tools.
  • Managing Remote Teams: Business Best Practices for 2020 and Beyond
    Managing Remote Teams: Business Best Practices for 2020 and Beyond
    Irwin Lazar - Vice President & Service Director, Nemertes; Todd Carothers - Chief Revenue Officer of CounterPath; Jun 17 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We're teaming up with global research firm Nemertes to reveal brand new research and data to help you make the best decisions in managing remote teams:

    - Why work-from-home is here to stay
    - Managing security concerns
    - Methods to cut cost
    - Conquering shadow IT
    - Steps to create a future-proof solution for your team

    In the blink of an eye, companies across the globe went virtual to combat the threat of COVID-19. While this move may have originally been a temporary change, new research shows work-from-home is here to stay.

    Even as lockdown restrictions begin to lift, 35% of companies say they definitely plan to continue to allow work-from-home, and an additional 35% say they’re likely to do so, according to research firm Nemertes.

    That sudden shift to a remote workforce (and now back from it) brings a significant amount of risk, particularly around shadow IT. We're teaming up with global research and advisory firm Nemertes to share emerging research, and talk about how to mitigate risks while building a long-term solution for your team.
