    • New York Metro LIG | How to Implement Measurements to Drive Value New York Metro LIG | How to Implement Measurements to Drive Value David Smith, President of Micromationinc.com Recorded: Oct 10 2012 4:00 pm UTC 56 mins
    • Improve the "Business of IT" by using a measurement framework & metrics that matter most. Metrics are important to management. What's not measured cannot be managed. But what should be measured, why & how?

      If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, then this session is for you:

      • not sure what or how to measure
      • IT metrics don't seem to support business goals
      • too busy fighting fires to become more proactive
      • business/IT goals not measured
      • priorities focus on noise vs. what's important
      • efficiency, effectiveness, quality not well understood
      • reduced visibility resulting in loss of control

      Metrics validate your IT strategy & vision; provide direction with targets & metrics; justify changes with a means to gauge value-realized; signal when to intervene with corrective actions. Hear case studies & examples that help you improve alignment, meet compliance & drive service excellence. Learn the secrets of how measurement frameworks works & take away a roadmap with actionable steps. Let's get IT started.

    • Reaching 10G in Fiber Mobile Networks - APAC edition Reaching 10G in Fiber Mobile Networks - APAC edition Jean-Sébastien Tassé, Product Line Manager, EXFO Upcoming: Mar 2 2016 3:00 am 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.

    • How Web-Scale IT Will Change Your Backup and DR Strategy How Web-Scale IT Will Change Your Backup and DR Strategy Eric Carter, Senior Director, Marketing, Hedvig Recorded: Jan 21 2016 3:00 pm UTC 33 mins
    • The world of backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity is being disrupted by new approaches taken from the playbook of web-scale companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook. Enterprises are adopting distributed systems-based, software-defined architectures that simplify management, streamline protection, increase uptime and reduce costs by as much as 60%.

      This session will provide insight on how software-defined storage (SDS) facilitates new ways to protect, manage, replicate, and recover data. Specifically, you’ll learn:

      • How a hyperscale architecture built on commodity hardware delivers better and more efficient protection for your data and applications
      • How to create a single geo or metro storage cluster that offers high-availability without the management headaches and high cost of traditional approaches
      • How to take advantage of a public cloud like AWS as a tier for older, colder data and as a DR site for a truly hybrid approach
