  • Next-generation Infrastructure Consolidation: Going Beyond Server Virtualization Next-generation Infrastructure Consolidation: Going Beyond Server Virtualization David Floyer, Chief Technology Officer, Wikibon; Sushant Rao, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Aug 23 2016 48 mins
    Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, companies are looking to take the next step to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reducing the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    This is where DataCore’s Parallel I/O technology comes in. By processing I/Os in parallel leveraging multi-core, multi-processor systems, Parallel I/O delivers industry leading I/O response times as well as price/performance. The net benefit is that fewer storage nodes can provide much better performance, allowing you to reduce and simplify your infrastructure.

  • Hybrid Security Services Orchestration & Automation Hybrid Security Services Orchestration & Automation Hervé Guesdon, CTO, UBIqube Sep 8 2016 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Virtualization presents tremendous efficiency and service innovation opportunities for the telecom industry.

    However, while most of the attention in the industry has focused on the virtualization of the functions themselves by leading networking hardware vendors, a greater challenge lies ahead for the telco aiming at orchestrating holistically services across these new architectures while still exploiting their legacy installed base.

    The task is rendered even more complex as what used to be a standalone silo in legacy network architectures now has to be weaved into every service delivered and orchestrated by the telco for their clients: Security.

    In this webinar we will focus on the specific challenges that come with orchestrating security as part of the network service (whether virtual or physical), and the associated end customer expectations on the matter (self-management portals, monitoring, big data analysis, remediation etc..).

    We will also discuss the broader adoption of next generation orchestration technologies as they relate to security services and the need for channel empowerment through devops and agility and technology integration easiness, which may lead to a subset of open source communities/solutions in the industry.
  • Achieving Optimal Performance Through Smart Mobile Backhaul Network Design Achieving Optimal Performance Through Smart Mobile Backhaul Network Design Bruno Giguere - MEF; Julius Robson - Small Cell Forum; Glenn Parsons - Ericsson; Rami Yaron - Telco Systems Sep 8 2016 4:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    To meet the demands for quality of service (QoS) and experience (QoE) for its users, operators are deploying new types of infrastructure and technologies, such as Wi-Fi carrier grade, distributed antenna systems (DAS), small cells and remote radio heads (RHH), among others.

    Still, most of the traffic load will remain in the hands of the macro cells. This means that, before embarking on the deployment of new technologies and infrastructure, operators must have a clear strategy to improve their current Mobile Backhaul networks. Mobile Backhaul network design may determine the capacity and performance of the mobile network. LTE and LTE-Advance Small Cells impose new requirements on the backhaul such as synchronization and latency in order to achieve better user experience.

    This webinar will cover current and future work of MEF with regard to mobile backhaul for LTE/ LTE- Advance Small Cells including:
    -Optimizing your network for LTE Advance cellular backhaul - MEF Mobile Backhaul Initiative
    -Outlining requirements for synchronization, resiliency, and service mapping
    -Achieving performance objectives for multiple classes of service
    -Best practices in LTE-Advance and Small Cell backhaul transition
    -Outlining the latest MEF developments in mobile backhaul
    -Assessing the impact of small cells’ synchronization and coordination on the backhaul

    Everyone knows what a huge success Pokemon Go has been - combining Augmented Reality with GPS location tracking. We can also see the impact of personalized ads “following us” when we visit different websites online... But how will we feel when we start seeing personalized location based marketing in the ‘real’ world, as Augmented Reality starts to change the way we experience supermarkets, high streets, and even getting around on public transport?

    Join us as we speak to two highly regarded experts in the world of Augmented and Mixed Reality:

    - Nik Badminton - Futurist & CEO at Design:Culture:Mind
    - Simon Gosling - Creative Evangelist at Happy Finish

    Using Keichi Matsuda’s "Hyper-Reality" video as a starting point, we will be asking where we think boundaries will be set by consumers and how much our lives will change as a result of Augmented Reality infiltrating our daily lives.
  • VR in Education: Moving the Classroom to Mars (and other field trips)! VR in Education: Moving the Classroom to Mars (and other field trips)! David Burden - CEO, Daden Limited, an immersive learning and visualisation company Sep 13 2016 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    For years, even decades, people have talked about how virtual and augmented reality and technologies could be used in the classroom, but it is only with the current wave of consumer VR devices that there is in schools on a large scale is becoming practicable. But to be effective we need to understand the pedagogic basis on which such technologies can be used, and provide the tool for teachers to be able to create their own VR experiences tailored to their own students.

    This presentation will look at the scope for the use of VR technologies in schools, describe some of the pioneering systems, and summarise the pedagogic underpinnings of VR use. It will then describe the Fieldscapes system as one example of a VR authoring system that will allow educators to create and share VR content, and how for the short-medium term a mix of VR and non-VR usage will need to be supported in order to cope with school ICT budgets, issues and concerns and different modes of use in and out of the classroom.

  • AR & VR in Education - Going Beyond the Page! AR & VR in Education - Going Beyond the Page! Paige Brooks-Jeffiers - Director for Innovative Strategies, Office for Professional Development and Innovation Sep 13 2016 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    If a picture is worth a thousand words, what would an interactive picture be worth? What about an entire interactive world where you can learn, play, and experiment in a safe environment?

    Student engagement is not only a 21st century buzz word, it is an important step in getting students to take on the responsibility of their own learning. Engaging students is not a new issue but, thanks to technology, there are now new ways to bring more engaging content to students – one example is through AR and VR.

    These new technologies are allowing students to get inside the content and learn from a different perspective - giving them a better understanding. Initial research is showing much improved engagement from the student’s perspective. Join us for some ideas on using AR and VR to go beyond the page and improve your students' engagement.
