    • The 2015 Ethernet Roadmap For Networked Storage
      The 2015 Ethernet Roadmap For Networked Storage Scott Kipp, President of the Ethernet Alliance; Dave Chalupsky, Chair, IEEE P802.3bq/bz TFs; David Fair, Chair - SNIA-ESF Recorded: Jun 30 2015 5:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • For over three decades, Ethernet has advanced on a simple “powers-of-ten” speed increases, and this model has served the industry well. Ethernet is changing in big ways and the Ethernet Alliance has captured the latest changes in the 2015 Ethernet Roadmap. SNIA is pleased to welcome Scott Kipp, President of the Ethernet Alliance and David Chalupsky, Chair IEEE P802.3bq/bz TFs and the Ethernet Alliance BASE-T Subcommittee to present the Ethernet Alliance’s 2015 Ethernet Roadmap for the networking technology that underlies most of future network storage.

      SNIA has focused on protocols and usage models and more or less just takes Ethernet for granted. The biggest technology disruption in the storage space is the emergence into the mainstream of Non-Volatile Memory (NVM), FLASH in particular. NVM increasingly moves system bottlenecks from the storage subsystem to the network. Developments in NVM -- most recently 3D FLASH -- assure that the cost per GB will continue aggressive declines and demand for bandwidth will go up. NVM will become more prevalent, making the roadmap for Ethernet increasingly more important to the storage networking community.

    • Business Benefits of Becoming a MEF Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional
      Business Benefits of Becoming a MEF Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional Erin Dunne-Vertical Systems Group; John Morgan-Level 3; Tammy Famularo-Charter Comm.; Craig Easley-Carrier Ethernet Academy Recorded: Jun 21 2016 4:00 pm UTC 68 mins
    • This webinar will present findings from the first independent study to measure the value of MEF’s Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP) certification program. Conducted by Vertical Systems Group, the research study was focused on gaining objective input directly from MEF-CECPs to analyze if and how certification actually impacts job performance, career advancement and company success in the Carrier Ethernet (CE) market.

      The research study is based on responses from 330 MEF-CECPs from 38 countries worldwide who work for service providers, equipment vendors, software suppliers and other firms. Highlights of the findings include an effectiveness rating of 9 out of 10 for improvements in the typical CE sales process and even higher on order processing flow improvements.

      In this webinar, two leading service providers with more than 450 MEF-CECPs in their organizations (Level 3 Communications & Charter Communications) will provide testimonials on the value of MEF-CECP certification and share the business benefits that can be reaped by having a highly skilled CE-focused professional work force.

    • Ethernet Interconnect Points – Paving the Way to Third Network Services
      Ethernet Interconnect Points – Paving the Way to Third Network Services Stan Hubbard - MEF, Dan Blemings - AT&T, Tim Sheehan - UNH-IOL, Jeff Brown - Windstream Recorded: Mar 23 2016 4:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    • Carrier Ethernet is the digital fuel for the global digital economy and the foundation upon which to build new dynamic, assured, and orchestrated services for the hyper-connected world. But a lack of standardization for interconnecting Ethernet service providers and operators is hindering market growth and efficiency. Most Ethernet interconnects today are non-standard, custom-built Network-to-Network Interconnections (NNIs), which impedes market scalability.

      More than a dozen MEF Member service providers and technology suppliers have participated in the MEF Ethernet Interconnect Points (EIP) project to leverage existing MEF standards for CE interconnection. Phase 1 of the EIP project involved the creation of an Ethernet Interconnect Point Implementation Guideline that recommends how to effectively use standardized Ethernet Network-to-Network Interfaces (ENNIs). This initial guideline focuses on the most basic Ethernet E-Access configuration possible, and new guidelines will advance in complexity over time. The guidelines will help the industry rapidly scale and reduce complexity.

      This webinar will explore where the market is heading, technical expectations, operational obstacles that may be encountered, and the need for operators to effectively manage the transition as the market moves to standardization. Service providers who buy wholesale Ethernet services from operators and interconnect their networks to create multi-network end-to-end retail CE services should attend this webinar to be better informed to make decisions on their journey towards leveraging standardized interconnections.

    • When the SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum (ESF) last looked at the Ethernet Roadmap for Networked Storage in 2015, we anticipated a world of rapid change. The list of advances in 2016 is nothing short of amazing:

      •New adapters, switches, and cables have been launched supporting 25, 50, and 100Gb Ethernet speeds including support from major server vendors and storage startups
      •Multiple vendors have added or updated support for RDMA over Ethernet
      •The growth of NVMe flash and release of the NVMe over Fabrics standard are driving demand for both faster speeds and lower latency in networking
      •The growth of cloud, virtualization, hyper-converged infrastructure, object storage, and containers are all increasing the popularity of Ethernet as a storage fabric

      The world of Ethernet in 2017 promises more of the same. Now we revisit the topic with a look ahead at what’s in store for Ethernet in 2017. With all the incredible advances and learning vectors, SNIA ESF is here to help you keep up. Here’s some of the things to keep track of in the upcoming year:
      •Learn what is driving the adoption of faster Ethernet speeds and new Ethernet storage models
      •Understand the different copper and optical cabling choices available at different speeds and distances
      •Debate how other connectivity options will compete against Ethernet for the new cloud and software-defined storage networks
      •And finally look ahead with us at what Ethernet is planning for new connectivity options and faster speeds such as 200 and 400 Gigabit Ethernet

      The momentum is strong with Ethernet, and we’re here to help you keep on top of the lightning-fast changes. Come join us to look at the future of Ethernet for storage and join the SNIA ESF webcast on December 1st register here.

    • Prenez une longueur d’avance et découvrez comment améliorer l’efficacité des techniciens de terrain, obtenir un déploiement de service plus rapide et accélérer la génération de revenus dans les réseaux de métro et les centres de données interconnectés (DCI).

      60 % des échecs aux tests sont dus à une mauvaise configuration du test, entraînant ainsi, pour les fournisseurs de services de communications, des tournées en camion inutiles ainsi qu’une perte de revenus due aux retards dans la création de nouveaux services. *

      La concurrence toujours accrue que connaît l’industrie des télécommunications oblige les fournisseurs de services à dévoiler plus rapidement les services Ethernet de prochaine génération afin de générer des revenus plus rapidement, mais sans nuire à la qualité de service (QDS) ni à la qualité d’expérience (QDE) de leur clientèle finale. De plus, les techniciens de terrain ont besoin de maîtriser rapidement une multitude de technologies en constante évolution afin de rester en phase avec un grand nombre de nouvelles exigences en matière de tests.

      Rejoignez notre webinaire du novembre et découvrez comment assurer la cohérence entre la validation des accords de niveau de service Ethernet (SLA) et les tout premiers résultats positifs, notamment :
      •comment optimiser l’efficacité des tests Ethernet tout en se conformant aux exigences du client
