    • MEF Third Network Vision Based on Network as a Service Principles MEF Third Network Vision Based on Network as a Service Principles Ralph Santitoro - Fujitsu, Rami Yaron - Telco Systems, John Hawkins - Ciena Recorded: Apr 29 2015 3:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • A significant transformation is taking place in data communications networks that will accelerate the ability of network operators to deliver self-service, on-demand services over interconnected networks. This transformation has begun through the adoption of Carrier Ethernet - the predominant network connectivity service for enterprise networking, cloud computing, and backhaul of cell sites and broadband access services.

      As the global defining body for Carrier Ethernet, the MEF has been the driver for the accelerated growth and adoption of Carrier Ethernet services through its standardized service types, such as E-Line and E-LAN, service definitions and the information models that are agnostic to the underlying transport technology used to deliver them.

      This webinar describes the MEF vision for the evolution and transformation of network connectivity services and the networks used to deliver them. The MEF refers to this as the “Third Network” which combines the on-demand agility and ubiquity of the Internet with the performance and security assurances of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0).

    • Mobile Edge Computing: New Ecosystem & Value Chain in Mobile Networks Mobile Edge Computing: New Ecosystem & Value Chain in Mobile Networks Randy Cook, VP Business Development Americas, Saguna, Telco Recorded: Mar 31 2015 4:00 pm UTC 41 mins
    • Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) provides a new ecosystem and value chain in mobile networks. The Open-RAN ecosystem enables Mobile Operators to open their Radio Access Network (RAN) edge to authorized third-party applications and services. By transforming proximity, context, agility, rapid response time and speed into value for mobile users, mobile operators, network equipment vendors, and third-party providers can improve the customer experience and monetize mobile broadband. The MEC trend is gaining momentum with the establishment of an ETSI MEC Standardization group led by Intel, Nokia, Huawei and other major players.

      In the Webinar, we will present the MEC architecture within the mobile network and demonstrate a number of use cases
      -Leveraging the Open-RAN ecosystem to bring 3rd party applications like Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to the Radio Edge;
      -Demonstrating the value of real-time network awareness for optimized content delivery;
      -And presenting advanced RAN-based technologies that further accelerate content delivery

    • Predicting Customer Experience through Hadoop and Customer Behavior Graphs Predicting Customer Experience through Hadoop and Customer Behavior Graphs Sanjay Kumar, General Manager, Telecom at Hortonworks - Sanjeev Srivastav, VP, Data Strategy at Apigee Recorded: Aug 5 2015 5:00 pm UTC 51 mins
    • Enhancing a customer experience has become essential for communication service providers to effectively manage customer churn and build a strong, long lasting relationship with their customers. This has become increasingly challenging as customer interactions occur across multiple channels. Understanding customer behavior and how it applies across channels is the key to ensuring the best level of experience is achieved by each customer.

      In this webinar Hortonworks and Apigee discuss how service providers can capture and visualize customer behavior across customer interaction points like call center events (IVR and chat) and combine it with network data, to predict customer calls and patterns of digital channel abandonment using Hadoop and predictive analysis and visualization tools..

      We will identify ways to develop a 360 degree view across a customer’s household through an HDP Data Lake and visualize customer interaction patterns and predict expected behavior using Apigee Insights to identify and initiate the Next-Best-Action for a customer to ensure a superior level of customer experience.

    • The Data Center Colocation Challenge – Diversifizierung richtig managen The Data Center Colocation Challenge – Diversifizierung richtig managen Ulrich Schälling, Head of Business Line Networks Recorded: Nov 12 2015 9:00 am UTC 43 mins
    • The Data Center Colocation Challenge – Diversifizierung richtig managen

      Data Center Colocation-Anbieter bewegen sich in einem äußerst anspruchsvollen und wettbewerbsintensiven Marktumfeld.
      Die Bereitstellung von Fläche und Stromversorgung in einem professionell geführten Rechenzentrum reicht schon längst nicht mehr aus, um sich deutlich von der Konkurrenz differenzieren zu können. Vielmehr ist ein erweitertes, gut geführtes Produkt- und Serviceportfolio erfolgsentscheidend. Doch um moderne Betriebsprozesse zur Bereitstellung qualitativ hochwertiger Services bei minimalem Kostenaufwand zu realisieren, bedarf es neuer Lösungen für das Management von Colocation-Angeboten.

      FNT adressiert diese Herausforderung mit einer ganzheitlichen Sicht auf die verschiedenen Ressourcen und Services von Colocation-Anbietern. Nicht nur Fläche, Strom und Kühlung im Rechenzentrum, sondern auch die physikalischen Kabelwege und die Verbindungen im Transportnetz auf logischer Ebene können in einem durchgängigen System dokumentiert, verwaltet und geplant werden. FNT schließt mit dieser Lösung die Lücke zwischen Data Center Facility Management, der Telekommunikationsinfrastruktur sowie dem IT-Betrieb, um den Anbieter bei der Einhaltung von SLAs zu unterstützen und einen effizienten Betrieb zu gewährleisten. Ulrich Schälling, Head of Business Line Networks, zeigt Ihnen in diesem Webcast, wie mögliche Diversifikations-Szenarien durch die FNT Produkte unterstützt werden und wie Colocation-Betreiber mit der Lösung von FNT eine neue betriebliche Effizienz erreichen können.

    • Key Open Source Efforts for SDN and NFV Key Open Source Efforts for SDN and NFV Sharon Barkai, Co-Founder, ConteXtream & Uri Elzur, SDN/SDI System Architecture Director, Intel Recorded: Apr 28 2015 5:00 pm UTC 56 mins
    • As we move away from legacy models for providing network services, namely dedicated physical appliances, to virtualized network functions servicing single or multiple data centers, the industry is experiencing the heavy lifting of bringing up new technologies for orchestration, SDN, and integrating the dynamic NFV model with the OSS/BSS Telco providers are using to control their ever-growing networks.

      The community of vendors, enterprises, and service providers is using Open Source to share and expedite this technology shift with a focus on quickly modernizing the infrastructure.

      The lower three layers of the stack enjoy broad community support as the Reference Architecture for NFV and SDN:

      •OpenStack – Used to orchestrate the infrastructure
      •OpenDaylight (ODL) – The SDN controller, enabling feature-rich, scalable solutions for network virtualization, service chaining, and other functions
      •Open vSwitch (OVS) – An entity controlled remotely by the SDN controller, providing inter-VM connectivity and emerging SLA, QoS, and security functionality at customizable granularity down to per-flow levels

      In this webcast, ConteXtream and Intel will describe the roles of each layer and the status of the basic functionality available today. A special focus will be given to ODL’s scalability and functionality challenges and solutions for intra- and inter-data-center networks (e.g. Telco networks). We will further discuss how overlay network standards are used to achieve these goals and how ODL federation is performed along IETF-RFC lines to achieve robust fan-out of control capacity. We will also demonstrate new capabilities and levels of flexibility powered by a combination of inter-data-center ODL, service chaining, and NFV technologies.
