Making Enterprise Networks as Easy and Cost-Effective as Wi-Fi
There are only 500K of small cells projected to be shipped in 2016, while there were 10.5 million enterprise Wi-Fi APs shipped in 2014! Wi-Fi APs are cost-effective and easy to install and maintain. But quality of experience is not there as the spectrum is unlicensed. In this webinar, you will learn about innovative vRAN solution from Parallel Wireless that utilizes Intel technology to drive deployment cost and complexity down.
Being able to use a “white box” Cellular Access Point (CAP) based on Intel technology that has licensed (3G/4G) + Wi-Fi gives mobile operators the flexibility to choose any ODM for hardware, which lowers the equipment CAPEX. Network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) on Parallel Wireless HetNet Gateway, running on Intel server, are being used to simplify and cut the costs of wireless deployments in the enterprise as well making them as easy and as cost-effective as Wi-Fi. As a result, this NFV strategy helps SPs to open new revenue streams by offering a cost-effective (pennies per square foot), easy-to-install solution to their Enterprise customers. Enterprises can deploy/maintain this NFV-enabled enterprise vRAN just like they deploy Wi-Fi -- under a day install the whole system – no specialized installers or RF planning are required. The HNG configures the nodes without any involvement from IT personnel (plug-and-play) AND our HetNet Gateway HNG also mitigates interference not only with the in-building cells, but macros as well. This results in better QoS for data and voice for the enterprises themselves. HNG offers several voice services such as VoLTE and VoWiFi in addition to enabling Smart Services for building owners.

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
Suzanne Kelliher, DCEngine Radisys Product Line Manager & John Wilson, Director. of Market Development for Intel® Rack Scale
Communication Service Providers are undertaking a major transformation from networks interconnected with closed, proprietary hardware network elements, to open architectures based on Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). Intel® Rack Scale Design (RSD) is a logical architecture for NFV infrastructure (NFVi) requirements that disaggregates compute, storage, and network resources, with the ability to efficiently pool and utilize these resources.
In this webinar, experts from Radisys and Intel will present the latest developments in applying Intel® RSD to SDN and NFV applications. Webinar participants will learn how the Radisys DCEngine™ hyperscale platforms, an implementation of Intel® RSD and inspired by Open Compute Project (OCP), can deliver the open software flexibility, DevOps deployment efficiencies, with carrier scalability for robust NFV deployments in emerging communication data center applications. The Webinar will include customer deployment examples, including Radisys DCEngine for open source software architectures, Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD) projects, as well as Intel® RSD initiatives in telecom networking applications.

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.

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.
