    • From Commit to Consumer - Three Must Haves for Speedy Delivery From Commit to Consumer - Three Must Haves for Speedy Delivery Sam Fell, Director of Product Marketing and Ken McKnight, Solutions Architect Recorded: Apr 22 2014 5:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • 1) Accelerated, error-free builds
      Agile development creates more frequent builds. A CD platform that optimizes and parallelizes large builds across hundreds, or even thousands of cores is good. A solution that automatically detects dependencies to eliminate broken builds is even better.
      2) Faster feedback
      You shouldn’t have to wait until builds or tests are 100% complete before receiving feedback. A CD platform that allows real-time drill-down into warnings and errors as they occur give helps eliminate wasted time and CPU cycles.
      3) Bulletproof and painless processes
      CD isn’t continuous if jobs in flight are lost when a CI server goes own; or when it takes days for QA machines to be provisioned; or when deployments fail because of differences between QA and production. A CD platform should automate and normalize the build, test and deploy process across ANY environment (public, private or hybrid) with 1-click simplicity.

    • Foreign banks raising capital in the US Foreign banks raising capital in the US MoFo, Citigroup, IFLR Recorded: May 12 2014 3:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    • Foreign banks are increasingly looking to diversify their financing options. With careful planning, they can access US investors without subjecting themselves to the securities registration requirements applicable to public offerings, or the ongoing disclosure and governance requirements applicable to US reporting companies.

      Speakers on this webinar will explain how non-US banks can pursue these funding avenues.

      Topics include:
      - Issuances exempt from registration under rule 144A;
      - Issuances that rely on registration exceptions provided by Securities Act section 3(a)(2) for securities offered or guaranteed by banks;
      - Setting up a rule 144A or bank note programme for straight debt;
      - Issuing covered bonds in reliance on rule 144A or Section 3(a)(2);
      - Yankee CD programmes; and
      - Banking and securities regulatory requirements to consider before setting up an issuance programme.

      Speakers:
      - Brad Berman, Morrison & Foerster
      - Jerry Marlatt, Morrison & Foerster
      - Jack McSpadden, Citigroup
      - Laura Drumm, Citigroup
      - Danielle Myles, IFLR (moderator)

      California and New York CLE credit will be offered for this webinar

    • End of Dispersion: Myth or Reality? End of Dispersion: Myth or Reality? Gwenn Amice, Senior Applications Engineer, EXFO Recorded: Mar 6 2014 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • When upgrading metro networks from 1 to 10 GigE, the distortions induced by chromatic dispersion and polarisation mode dispersion will limit the distance that can be attained. When upgrading core networks from 10 (OTU2, 10 GigE, etc.) to 100 (OTU3, 100 GigE, etc.) and soon to 400 Gbit/s, coherent systems will be able to post-compensate the linear distortions, but to what extent. What are the limits? What are the best fiber-characterization practices?

      In this Webinar, we are going to reveal the myths and realities about the critical parameters that need to be controlled when deploying hybrid systems, such as 10 Gbit/s (NRZ) and 100 Gbit/s (DP-QPSK), including:

      -Guard bands
      -Dispersion compensation
      -Nonlinear effects

    • Foreign bank financing in the US Foreign bank financing in the US IFLR, RBC, Morrison & Foerster Recorded: Jul 8 2011 3:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    • Foreign banks are increasingly seeking to diversify their financing opportunities.

      With careful planning, banks can access US investors without subjecting themselves to the securities registration requirements applicable to public offerings and to ongoing disclosure and governance requirements applicable to US reporting companies.

      This IFLR web seminar, in association with Morrison & Foerster, tackles the issue. Topics will include:

      - Issuances exempt from registration under Rule 144A,
      - Issuances that rely on the exception from registration provided by Securities Act Section 3(a)(2) for securities offered or guaranteed by banks,
      - Setting up a Rule 144A or bank note program for straight debt, structured products or other securities,
      - Issuing covered bonds in reliance on Rule 144A or Section 3(a)(2),
      - Yankee CD programs, and
      - Banking and securities regulatory requirements to consider prior to setting up an issuance program.

    • Reaching 10G in Fiber Mobile Networks - EMEA edition Reaching 10G in Fiber Mobile Networks - EMEA edition Jean-Sébastien Tassé, Product Line Manager, EXFO Upcoming: Mar 1 2016 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Driven to a large extent by the increasing use of wireless bandwidth, mobile fiber infrastructures or fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) networks are growing very fast. Indeed, the fast adoption of smartphones and mobile video streaming is generating so much bandwidth demand that unprecedented data rates are now being deployed in mobile backhaul and metro rings, often at 10 Gbit/s. This webinar will discuss the typical topologies and challenges of these 10G mobile fiber network rollouts. Although some of the common issues inherent to 1G or 2.5G deployments (such as fiber loss problems) certainly still apply at 10G, new impairments such as chromatic dispersion (CD) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD) emerge due to the higher data rates and longer distances covered by the wireless backhaul. In addition, impairments such as optical return loss (ORL) have tighter requirements at 10G than at 2.5G. Accordingly, this webinar will examine common impairments observed at 10G in wireless backhaul networks, and present best testing practices to ensure trouble-free operation of these networks.
