Next generation packet transport networks (PTN) with a focus on Multi-protocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) are becoming popular for service providers looking to deploy Software Defined Networks by leveraging OpenFlow and its extensions over a growing diversity of networking systems. One of the largest carriers in the world, CMCC has come up with an overall system specification for its software defined PTN (SPTN) using an OpenFlow southbound interface (SBI).
This presentation covers the high level specification and design considerations for a centralized PTN controller and implementing MPLS-TP technologies over OpenFlow in a service provider’s packet transport networks. It will also discuss the TTP extensions, developed by China Mobile and their partners, including key contributor Broadcom, to support this end-to-end use case. The webinar will further discuss the open software developed to run on existing switching silicon which can be deployed in a backhaul network.
Data centers and internet content providers (ICPs) are a vibrant and rapidly-growing market for optical equipment and are currently the center of market attention. But their needs are different than those of traditional carriers, and some of these requirements are well known and others are not.

This webinar addresses the environmental effects of coal mining and related transport, reviewing the potential environmental impacts arising at all stages of the coal chain. Potential environmental impacts from emissions of dust, water, and local land use are reviewed, highlighting emerging techniques to limit and reduce negative effects.
Examples of best practice for mine operation, transport logistics and dust control will demonstrate the potential for improved performance and environmental sustainability in the field. Socioeconomic impacts, as well as regional employment and community engagement, are also covered. In this day and age mining companies will need to comply with environmental law as well as demonstrating best practice and public engagement to have new projects approved.

It’s been a tough couple years for crypto protocols. Almost every month a new vulnerability in TLS is announced that causes panic and distress to the security and IT communities. In this talk I’ll explain the latest set of cryptographic vulnerabilities in an accessible manner. By the end of the talk you’ll hopefully know the difference between FREAK, LogJam, DROWN, Sweet32, POODLE and SLOTH. We’ll be breaking good crypto and bad with side-channels, signing oracles and downgrades. I’ll also explain how the latest changes to TLS are supposed to fix things and how the entire house of cards may topple once quantum computers arrive.Read more >

Over the last 2 years, 100-gigabit Ethernet has been deployed over optical transport network (OTN) systems and distributed over DWDMs. Now is the time to test it all. However, two key questions arise:
What tests should be performed?
How long should the tests last?
This webinar addresses the appropriate testing method for high-speed networks. Based on industry standards and forums, EXFO is proposing a simple, yet complete test methodology that should help today’s network operators.
Biometrics has slowly become more and more present in our everyday lives. We no longer bat an eyelid when our phones require us to use a finger print for a payment or even when its how you get into your gym. So whats the next step?
Cubic, who are the people behind the payment technology of the London Transport System, have devised a system that can double the “throughput” of an entrance—from 25 people crossing a gate’s threshold per minute, to about 50 or 60. This idea could mean that we would no longer have gates at tube stations across London and instead your phone in combination with your face.
Niosha Kayhani of Cubic will be taking us through the development of this Technology and also the growing uses and industry that is Biometrics.

Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols that provide communication security over the Internet. Both SSL and TLS use asymmetric cryptography for authentication of key exchange, symmetric encryption for confidentiality and message authentication codes for message integrity. In this presentation, Anthony J. Solano - Chief Technology Officer at UKI will explore the fundamentals of the protocol and give visual examples of how it is implemented. Through the analysis of high profile hacks, Mr. Solano will reveal system vulnerabilities and explore how existing countermeasures address the attackers. The presentation will conclude with actionable steps to help lock down your personal and organization’s vulnerable attack surface.Read more >

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are an important subset of IoT applications. They are made possible by sharing multimodal transport information across data owners, application developers, service providers and end-users to deliver innovative services.
By exposing historically closed data assets to different stakeholders, Intelligent Transport Systems deliver significant economic gains; citizens benefit through informative services; journeys become more efficient; and, a transport assets start to generate higher returns. ITS will also have a profound impact on regional economic development by fostering new business start-ups, for example.
This webinar examines the intelligent-transport needs of local government and transport-sector authorities in the UK and how the oneM2M standard addresses their operational requirements across a broad set of stakeholders. Presenters from Arup, Buckinghamshire Country Council and InterDigital will describe how a public-private consortium field trial is using the standard within the oneTRANSPORT project. The pilot is being rolled out across several counties in the UK, covering a population of over 4m people. The webinar will also illustrate new application opportunities and business models for local authorities to monetize their assets including early Return-on-Investment projections for a viable, long-term deployment.
Coking coal prices were at an all time high in April 2011 partly because of logistics bottlenecks. Since then prices for prime coking coal have fallen by around 50%. Chinese demand is faltering and some suppliers are cutting production, but Peabody and Teck are continuing to expand, anticipating renewed market tightness. Some transport constraints will then again become crucial to how the market and prices develop. This webcast will cover in detail on all of the foregoing, especially the logistics bottlenecks.Read more >

The heightened expectations of today’s consumers are forcing retailers to revamp their supply chains to make them more efficient, deliver greater demand responsiveness and ensure the optimal placement of inventory in the supply chain. An optimized supply chain brings multiple benefits in terms of improved customer service and logistics cost, greater flexibility in matching demand and supply, and it enables retailers to improve the accuracy of their forecasts.
In this webinar we explain how to optimize retail supply chains to better satisfy customer demands and boost business efficiency while reducing costs. We look in particular at the example of India, where the recent introduction of Goods and Sales Tax will bring major changes in the way procurement, warehousing and transportation are carried out. We describe and demonstrate some of the advanced supply chain management capabilities Openbravo has added to its product suite to help retailers revamp their supply chains and so improve competitiveness.
