What do financial services firms need to know, and need to do, between now and the 2018 PSD II deadline?
We're filming live at the London Stock Exchange where viewers can get their questions answered live by our experts.
PSD II could have a seismic impact on financial services. It has the potential to fundamentally change the way customers engage with institutions, and how these customers access financial services. There is also potential for open banking to create a platform to drive competition and real innovation in the industry.
But there are also big challenges and threats – data security and liability, to the operating models of financial institutions and from new entrants and third-party providers.
With just over a year to go before the compliance deadline in January 2018 the clock is ticking. Our experts will consider how firms should be looking to strike a balance between regulatory compliance and making the most of the opportunities for innovation afforded by PSD II.
Operators are deploying coherent 100G optical technology in their core networks to reap the benefits of higher capacity, longer reach, easier management and lower costs. Until recently, though, economical 100G technology did not exist for the metro, where space limitations require scalable, smaller-size and lower-power solutions. This webinar examines new technologies and approaches to cost-effectively deploying and testing 100G in metro applications, as well as 100G metro network rollout scenarios.Read more >

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.

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.Read more >
