Competing in today’s cloud, data, and mobility-dominated global carrier markets means being able to deliver complex new services, empower customer self-service, commodify and virtualize infrastructure, and scale rapidly at lowest possible cost. OpenStack’s extreme programmability, core open source economics, rich compatibility with popular carrier automation, process and back-office systems and broad utility as a platform for managing the emerging VNF ecosystem making it a natural choice for innovative players seeking to achieve greater control, freedom and agility.
This presentation will detail some of Mirantis’ recent work helping carrier customers deliver innovative new services, describe some of the R&D Mirantis has undertaken to enable NFV on OpenStack platforms, and show how a Pure Play approach to OpenStack is accelerating adoption and deployment of NFV within Carriers and Operators.

While network service providers are keen to adopt disruptive technologies such as network function virtualization (NFV) and software defined networking (SDN) to facilitate rapid deployment of new services at improved ROI, they know they cannot afford to sacrifice service performance. Concerns arise primarily due usage of commodity hardware which are not designed for supporting real-time applications. Thus, there is the need for tools and mechanisms that can measure network service performance in a calibrated fashion can accurately measure and help correlate the optimal performance of commodity hardware and related IT infrastructure needed to deploy the services. Service Providers armed with such tools can confidently deploy their services on NFV-based environments.
Join this webinar to learn about:
- Challenges faced by telecom service providers while deploying NFV-based services.
- Understanding potential bottlenecks in NFV infrastructure.
- How to diagnose the bottlenecks and overcome them.
- How Veryx provides the needed capabilities for monitoring and visibility for delivering services using NFV infrastructure
Who should attend?
- Network Architecture teams and teams currently involved in proof-of-concepts of NFV-based architecture from Telecom Service Provider organizations.
- Network engineering teams exploring service assurance and visibility tools.

With adoption of Telco Cloud, Diagnostics and Troubleshooting in deployment environment have become more complex and challenging. Traditional operational processes are often falling short of expectations, while the Telco Cloud infrastructure is demanding an operational convergence that requires catering to more heterogeneous infrastructure than ever before. In many occasions, the reported faults of a certain functionality of Telco Cloud are often rooted from An entirely different layer of Infrastructure. Thus, identifying limit conditions, isolating faults, and taking corrective actions require leveraging contextual intelligence.
Towards this, Experts are considering to leverage Network Artificial Intelligence to analyze and model the behavior of VNFs and NFV environment, and identify the root causes and corrective actions through this intelligence. This particular webinar focuses on this aspect, and discusses HCL’s solution approach while referring Intel’s some of the recent effort and portfolios around Artificial Intelligence.

How does SD-WAN shift the status quo for Operations teams? SD-WAN technology possesses sophisticated, in-built capability for operations and management, and advanced automation to address network problems in real-time. However, network operations teams need to seamlessly integrate this network and health status intelligence from their new SD-WAN infrastructure into their existing monitoring and management infrastructure. Additionally, monitoring solutions must provide visibility across all network architectures including highly dynamic and complex hybrid clouds and other SDN elements and should:
- Eliminate visibility gaps between traditional networks and SD-WAN providing administrators with insights to optimize and transform their large hybrid networks
- Provide relationship mapping of major IT events
- Visualize physical and logical dependencies in applications and service chains
- Extend visibility for operators with network performance monitoring across traditional, SDN, NFV, SDDC, SD-WAN, NFV and cloud networks (including service chains)
- Enable operational insight into how all elements of traditional and overlay networks affect service integrity

NFV continues to gain prominence in both the telecom industry and enterprises. OPNFV is an open source systems integration project to create and test open source to help create a complete NFV stack as defined by the ETSI reference architecture. However, the unique nature of the project makes it difficult to understand than "traditional" open source software development projects. In this webinar, we will look at the OPNFV project as a whole and through a high-level review of its roughly 60 projects. Suitable for both practitioners and decision makers, you will learn:
* An overview of the OPNFV project
* An introduction to create-integrate-test categories
* Upstream and OPNFV projects that belong to the above categories
Join us on March 22 as Amar Kapadia and Nick Chase help you navigate through the various OPNFV projects.

The digital economy is built upon distributed systems. Distributed systems scale horizontally, interconnect via APIs, and are highly resilient. The security solution for this digital economy needs to be equally distributed and capable of scaling out across the multicloud.
The world has changed – the perimeter is disappearing alongside an explosion of internal threats. The imperative is to wrap security controls around assets so that environmental changes do not expose critical assets that need protection at all times. Security requirements have changed from the legacy appliance model to the modern distributed model.
In this Webinar, we will discuss how modern software architectures solve today’s security challenges – particularly in addressing complexity, scaling across the multicloud, innovating new controls, and providing visibility into application requirements and relationships
Intel x86 and virtualized platforms offer ubiquitous, fast, cost efficient solutions, allowing for deep packet processing at high speed and rapid deployment of new features in software. These platforms are unconstrained by the limitations of specialist hardware, ‘appliance thinking', and network technology posing as security products – Welcome to the new era of IT security, enabled by Intel and vArmour.
