    • 8 Criteria for Enterprise-Grade Cloud Communications 8 Criteria for Enterprise-Grade Cloud Communications Max Ball Recorded: Jun 6 2016 6:40 pm UTC 56 mins
    • What does it mean to have an enterprise-grade cloud communications solution? Many providers may claim to offer it, but not all can deliver. And if always-on, reliable and global communications are mission-critical for your business, you need to ensure your cloud provider is making the "grade".

      In this complimentary webinar, we will discuss 8 standard elements that all companies should look out for when exploring a cloud communications solution, including:

      The flexibility to extend international services and global reach
      Potential risks of downtime and non-compliance when solutions are not enterprise-grade
      The ability to integrate with contact center, CRM and productivity applications

      Who should attend:
      CIOs, Directors of IT or Infrastructure
      Anyone interested in unifying their communications and collaboration infrastructure onto a single, secure, reliable platform – simply
      Those seeking a way to replace outdated or disparate legacy systems across multiple locations.

    • Carrier Grade NFV in the Era of the Internet of Things Carrier Grade NFV in the Era of the Internet of Things Glenn Seiler, Vice President, Software Defined Networking, Wind River Recorded: Feb 12 2015 5:00 pm UTC 36 mins
    • Carrier grade functionality, a tried and true concept in the telecommunications industry, has kept the network up an running for years. As we place calls, stream video, and send data of all kinds, we’ve come to expect the network to be “always on”. But now, telecom is entering a new era of communications driven by the Internet of Things (IoT). New technologies, bigger challenges, and the need for more services are changing the game. And now, the network must evolve to serve as the critical infrastructure supporting billions of connected sensors, devices, and machines sending and receiving data and information. Emerging as a key enabler of this new critical network infrastructure is carrier grade network virtualization and network functions virtualization (NFV).

      Join Wind River for a lively discussion on what it means to be carrier grade in the era of the IoT. We’ll take a look at the five characteristics of traditional carrier grade networks and how each is evolving and being applied to NFV. We’ll also take look at the different NFV use cases requiring carrier grade functionality and how network equipment providers and service providers are using these implementations to build the critical infrastructure supporting the yet to be defined world of IoT.

    • Small business thinking big: Enterprise-grade cloud strategies for SMBs Small business thinking big: Enterprise-grade cloud strategies for SMBs Wendy Schuchart, Editor & Analyst, VentureBeat Recorded: Mar 25 2015 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins

      Sky Sharma: CIO at US Air Force
      Sam Eaton: Director of Engineering Operations at Yelp


      Got cloud? If you’re an SMB, you’ve already been there, done that. But are you really extracting maximum value out of your cloud hosted solutions?

      SMBs use an average of five hosted services, between IaaS, hosted email and collaboration and business applications – and that number is expected to climb to almost ten cloud services by next year. Everyone’s dabbling, but SMBs crave the cloud sophistication of their enterprise-grade competitors.

      - How are enterprises pivoting so quickly to respond to operational goals and drive bottom line results?
      - How can SMBs use cloud functions to serve an ever-impatient customer base?
      - Can SMBs realize the kind of growth and innovation through cloud services that enterprises expect?
      - And more importantly, how do SMB CIOs get their hands on all of those pretty, shiny enterprise toys?

      We’ll answer those questions and more with this expert panel of enterprise leaders who will share their strategies for success that SMBs can copy by using cloud services.

    • Operating experience of low grade fuels in circulating fluidised bed combustion Operating experience of low grade fuels in circulating fluidised bed combustion Dr Ian Barnes Recorded: Aug 19 2015 11:00 am UTC 29 mins
    • Recent developments in process waste recycling and biomass utilisation have driven the use of these so-called ‘low value fuels’ for energy generation on a stand-alone basis, and in combination with coal. One particular technology stands out as being particularly well suited to utilising these low value fuels, circulating fluidised bed combustion (CFBC). The upcoming webinar sets out examples of the range of low value fuels, their reserves and properties, with particular emphasis on coal-derived materials, the issues for CFB plant in utilising these fuels and selected examples of manufacturer and operator experience with purpose built, or modified CFB plant.
