Reduce Costs & Optimize Infrastructure with Intelligent, VNF Workload Placement

Running network functions reliably and cost-effectively on commodity-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware requires the right software. The right network functions virtualization (NFV) software platform should be able to automatically leverage available hardware capabilities such as faster processors, hardware assists, or packet acceleration to minimize cost per bit.

Join our webcast to learn how RIFT.ware integrates key Intel networking technologies, such as Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) and Enhanced Platform Awareness Attributes (EPA) such as Quick Assist Technologies (QAT), Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) and other component level innovations to unlock a whole new level of intelligence for VNF workload placement in NFV orchestration. You’ll learn how RIFT.ware makes it easy to exploit Intel's advanced hardware technologies and enables VNF builders and network operators to automatically choose the right infrastructure for virtual network functions and maximize hardware cost/performance.

  • 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%

  • Business Transformation: On the Evolutionary Path to IoT and 5G Recorded: Sep 21 2016 49 mins
    Gloria Nogales, Intel; Jesus Cabrera, Verizon Wireless
    With the advent of 5G, the coming advancements in wireless technology will dramatically impact the way we do business, interact with each other, and accomplish everyday tasks. As with any coming or newly emerging technology, predicting the impact of 5G is a challenge, but we know for sure that the leap to 5G will have an instant impact on end-to-end device and network transformation. The increase in speed, power, and functionality that 5G offers can enable Communications Service Providers to keep pace with the increasing demands of their customers. In essence, 5G will enable the network to become personal.

    In this webinar, Intel and Verizon will explore how 5G will make it possible to transform the way we think about devices and things and the networking technologies that will drive the need for flexible computing to enable the widespread connectivity required for the Internet of Things. In addition, participants will learn how platform scalability and flexibility through virtualization are necessary to deliver the efficient, powerful use of computing needed in the 5G network and how Communications Service Providers can streamline the delivery of services and drive new opportunities for service growth.
  • Hybrid Security Services Orchestration & Automation Recorded: Sep 8 2016 52 mins
    Hervé Guesdon, CTO, UBIqube
    Virtualization presents tremendous efficiency and service innovation opportunities for the telecom industry.

    However, while most of the attention in the industry has focused on the virtualization of the functions themselves by leading networking hardware vendors, a greater challenge lies ahead for the telco aiming at orchestrating holistically services across these new architectures while still exploiting their legacy installed base.

    The task is rendered even more complex as what used to be a standalone silo in legacy network architectures now has to be weaved into every service delivered and orchestrated by the telco for their clients: Security.

    In this webinar we will focus on the specific challenges that come with orchestrating security as part of the network service (whether virtual or physical), and the associated end customer expectations on the matter (self-management portals, monitoring, big data analysis, remediation etc..).

    We will also discuss the broader adoption of next generation orchestration technologies as they relate to security services and the need for channel empowerment through devops and agility and technology integration easiness, which may lead to a subset of open source communities/solutions in the industry.
