2017 will be a year of significant change for many operators. Efforts to virtualize network functions and increase levels of automation; projects to upgrade fixed and mobile networks with new access technologies; and the need to manage evolving types and patterns of traffic will all leading to significant infrastructure upheaval. Against this backdrop, operators still need to ensure customers are getting what they pay for, which means their test and measurement activities need to alter too. Meanwhile, the T&M industry itself is being subjected to some of these changes: for instance, replacement of hardware probes with virtual probes, and the automation of test procedures.
This on-demand webinar will look at hot themes in test and measurement in the coming year, and what these will mean for operators.
We have all seen the headlines about major data breaches at Yahoo, the Veterans Administration, Target, Anthem, and more, but have you ever stopped to think—those companies all had firewalls, IPS, SIEMs, and security pros on staff… how did the attacks get through? With Ixia’s ThreatARMOR, you can make your firewall and security team more efficient and effective.
The integration between Mentor Graphics and IXIA offers networking customers the ability to seamlessly integrate an IXIA virtual environment into an emulation-based verification flow, bringing the powerful advantages of emulation to the lab environment. This allows the reuse of traffic flow generation scripts for greater efficiency and improved debug, faster time-to-market, and gives design teams the ability to de-risk the challenges of complex chip designs.
Communications networks are being virtualized because virtualization provides remarkable benefits. Virtualization complicates operations, however. The responsibility for dealing with many of those complications falls on test & measurement companies.
Even some of the network operators who are virtualizing as quickly as technology allows have not anticipated some of these issues. In this one-hour discussion, four leading T&M companies will not only identify the hidden pitfalls of virtualization, but talk about some of the best ways to side-step them. Industry collaboration is key to developing NFV testing and validation techniques that provide carriers with the assurance needed to move virtualization technologies from the lab to production. The importance of active, software-based test and service assurance becomes even greater as operators must ensure that their services are delivered right the first time and any issues can be detected in real-time in an end-to-end manner. Automation will be a key enabler of service agility. And at the end of the day -- or more accurately, at the edge of a virtualized network -- signal integrity will remain critical.
You can't have network security monitoring without visibility to network data. You can't have visibility without context or you risk overwhelming security tools with irrelevant traffic. You can't add context to data without the performance to apply it at line rate. And you can't have performance without resilience to protect security tools and paths.
In this webinar, we will show how to combine the four keys to improving security threat detection into a Security Fabric to deliver greater context and intelligent distribution to monitored traffic. You will learn how to create actionable threat intelligence specific to your organization and increase the value of your existing security tool infrastructure.
What if you could learn about the various cloud models and also gain insight into some of the leading products in each of those models? That’s exactly what you’ll get with the 2016 ActualTech Media Cloud MegaCast
This is your unique opportunity to learn about:
-What’s happening in across the cloud spectrum
-Solutions to some of your most complex data center issues
-Seven leading vendors how they’re driving positive outcomes for their customers.
Today’s networks are increasingly powerful and diverse but can suffer from significant blind spots making them difficult to audit and verify traffic. All too often, seemingly inexpensive solutions end up being unreliable or costly to deploy, or they do not scale as the organization grows.
You need 100% data access and visibility, and the intelligence to evaluate vast volumes of network traffic, without slowing or disrupting your network. A resilient security fabric does all this and helps scale your security infrastructure as needs change.
Your security architecture was designed to protect your business, but does it have the resiliency to deliver results in the event something doesn’t go as planned? Resiliency is attainable – even on a budget – when you take it step by step.

Discover some network monitoring tool tap varieties, then stay for some beer varieties! In the first half of this event, we will show you the different types of network taps along with some details on how they work, when to use them, and what varieties they come in. For the second half, Master Cicerone Rich Higgins will explore the who, what, where, why, and how of what is poured from a beer tap—including beer styles, regions, seasons, and much more.
