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.

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.

Industry convergence and technological innovations are giving rise to a new breed of wearable technologies that are capable of meeting the unique needs and requirements of clinical care settings. Unlike more prevalent general health and fitness devices, these wearables can function with higher levels of accuracy and reliability allowing them to be used by medical professionals to make assessments and recommendations for patients.
In this interactive briefing, Frost & Sullivan’s Transformational Health team will explore the future applications and opportunities for these innovations, and key strategy considerations for developers.
Join us as we discuss these and other key topics.
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.Read more >
Hadoop provides a powerful platform for data science and analytics where data engineers and data scientists can leverage myriad data from external and internal data sources to uncover new insight. Such power also presents a few new challenges. On one hand, the business wants more and more self-service and, on the other hand, IT is trying to keep up with the demand for data, while maintaining architecture and data governance standards.
In this webinar, Andrew Ahn, Data Governance Initiative Product Manager at Hortonworks, will address the gaps and offer best practices in providing end-to-end data governance in HDP. Andrew Ahn will be followed by Oliver Claude, of Waterline Data, who will share a case study of how Waterline Data Inventory works with HDP in the Modern Data Architecture to automate the discovery of business and compliance metadata, data lineage, and data quality metrics.
As most companies across all industries have embraced open innovation, two important questions must be answered: How do our open innovation efforts measure up against the best practices? What can we do to put ourselves in the top tier of open innovation users? In this talk, Stefan Lindegaard, will share his insights on how companies can evaluate their open innovation initiatives based on 7 key areas: Common Language and Understanding, Motivation, Mandate and Strategic Purpose; Assets and Needs; Value Pools and Channels; Internal Readiness; External Readiness; New Skills and Mindset; Communications Strategy. Lindegaard will also provide ideas on how to make the necessary improvements that will give more power to your organization’s open innovation work.Read more >
All compliance frameworks reference endpoint integrity, host defenses, and access control. You’ve invested in host-based security, systems management, and SIEM in order to reduce malware, data leakage, and other security exposures. But what innovative approaches can you use to not only improve your organization’s GRC grade but also achieve continuous compliance?
This session shares a reference solution for continuous compliance based on smart integrations between McAfee security management and ForeScout’s automated security control platform. This expert / practitioner session will cover:
• Common endpoint compliance gaps
• NAC integration with host-based security and policy management systems
• Extending correlation rules to enable endpoint remediation
• How to create a closed-loop endpoint security and compliance program
