Create Networks of Tomorrow with SDN & NFV

Experience is the single most important factor to achieve service excellence and is one of the major challenges faced by every network provider’s be it within the Enterprise, Campus or TSP networks today. One of the major reasons for this is static configuration and selection of end-to-end paths based on certain configured criteria, not taking into consideration, the real-time network variables.

Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) can boost the agility of network, service provisioning and operations. They are designed to merge the network into the age of the Cloud to become a service creation platform that empowers end users and delivers customized experiences. The industry has reached an inflection point and the status quo of the today’s networks is not sustainable. Communication Service Providers must adapt these rising phenomenon towards an open and agile infrastructure that’s simple to manage, efficient and programmable

‘Creating Network of Tomorrow with SDN-NFV’ session will give a quick overview on SDN and NFV technologies with a focus on how they differentiate and complement each other in various use cases. We will briefly present the capabilities that Tech Mahindra brings in this space.

  • How distributed systems define the new era of IT Security Feb 8 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Marc Wullword, CTO, vArmour
    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.

  • Building Best-In-Class SD-WANs with Intel Compute Technology Recorded: Nov 8 2016 45 mins
    Vijay Sagar - VP of Product Management, CloudGenix
    More is being asked of the enterprise WAN than ever before—providing direct connectivity to the cloud, understanding what applications are and how they are performing, and providing security functions in a cost-effective fashion all the way to the branch. Traditional ASIC-based WAN architectures, while providing excellent forwarding performance, lack the flexibility to adapt to the needs of the enterprise WAN both today and in the future. This webinar will address the key architectural benefits of Intel architectures and how they can enable next generation SD-WANs, as well as the benefits that end customers can realize including lower acquisition cost, faster service enablement and lowest ongoing total cost of ownership.
  • Enabling a Software Life Cycle for IoT Devices: From CPE to Enterprise Gateways Recorded: Nov 1 2016 58 mins
    Manik Taneja Product Manager, Ubuntu Core
    Most embedded devices today never see a software update once shipped from the factory. Even if a software update is available, it's still very cumbersome to apply. More often than not, the update process is riddled with artifacts relying entirely on the end consumer. Given the complexities of keeping/maintaining the device, it's no surprise that adding to it capabilities with new software is challenging.
    In this session, we are going to introduce novel ways to manage a device life cycle. This new paradigm of software design enables transactional updates, application isolation and security as fundamental building blocks.

  • Hardware Load Balancers Don’t Cut It Any More – Why? What Should You Do? Recorded: Oct 4 2016 60 mins
    Ashish Shah, Director of Products, Avi Networks
    Enterprises are increasingly focused on driving automation with the flexibility of private and public clouds and modern application architectures. Legacy application delivery controllers (ADCs) rely on proprietary appliances with custom ASICs to meet performance requirements driving up costs without addressing next generation computing needs. Significant performance improvements achieved on Intel architecture servers now enable industry leading ADC performance on standard bare-metal servers. It is time to rethink L4 – L7 services for today’s applications.

    In this webinar jointly presented by Intel and Avi Networks learn how with the right architecture, software-defined application services on standard Intel architectures deliver superior performance at the best price / performance ratio. Learn how you can finally go beyond table stakes load balancing and static hardware appliances to:

    - Use Webscale IT principles and software load balancers to achieve the best performance
    - Autoscale load balancers and applications on-demand with no manual intervention
    - Troubleshoot gnarly application issues within a minute
    - Take advantage of multi-cloud environments with central management
    - Eliminate overspending on ADCs and lower your TCO by more than 70%
