  • Efficient Data Transport for Financial Application Mar 28 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Miroslaw Walukiewicz, Solution Architect, Intel
    Financial customers moves their applications from enterprise deployments to data center lowering the OPEX. With this movement there is no move to change requirements that are low and deterministic latency of data transport and extreme compute power. With use of FPGA and DPDK technology there is possible to lower the transport latency and use compute of power of Intel® Xeon® processors efficiently comparing to traditional Linux kernel approach.
    The webinar presents problems related with transport using Linux kernel and demonstrates how the FPGA and DPDK can be used to improve data transport for financial applications.
  • Parallel Wireless Unified 2G/3G/4G/5G Open vRAN Mar 26 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Zahid Ghadialy, Sr. Dir., Strategic Mktg and 3G/4G Blogger and Babak Jafarian, Dir, Strategic Business Communications
    The telecoms industry is capital intensive, so every dollar and every cent spent on new infrastructure needs to be accounted for. The biggest expense for mobile operators has always been the RAN, accounting for around 60 % of CAPEX (and 65 % of OPEX). Older (2G, 3G) technologies are becoming more expensive to maintain alongside with 4G and soon 5G. The Open Compute model of the data center has the potential to help operators to move away from proprietary hardware to a virtualized network architecture. Some of TIP’s (Telecom Infrastructure Project) initiatives by Facebook) highest-profile activities are aimed specifically at the RAN, where the proprietary nature of several interfaces has stopped operators from using more than one vendor. The software-based approach for older Gs is unheard of where by virtue of the original design, it’s impossible to reconfigure legacy 2G and 3G networks to support newer communications standards such as 4G, and eventually 5G. In this webinar learn how Parallel Wireless Open RAN technology, designed on x86 across baseband processing platform, radio hardware, and radio and core software, simplifies MNOs business models to support ALL current, present, and future Gs for a better service to the end users at much lower cost. We will present recent case studies from TIP Summit from operators like Telefonica, MTN and Vodafone. www.parallelwireless.com
  • 5G READY: SECURE AND MODERNIZE YOUR 4G/LTE NETWORK Recorded: Mar 19 2019 56 mins
    Paul Nicholson, Sr. Director of Product Marketing, and Yasir Liaqatullah, VP of Product Management at A10 Networks
    Most mobile operators are moving ahead with their 5G plans, some tentatively and others aggressively. Those who don’t act, face the very real prospect of being left behind in the greatest technology transformation in decades.

    To Modernize your 4G/LTE networks for 5G, we will outline four strategic investments that mobile operators should consider today while delving into the myths and realities around them. These four areas are:
    •Upgrading network management
    •Consolidating network functions
    •Boosting security at key protection points
    •Virtualizing network functions

    In the security portion of this webinar, we also spotlight key concerns where modern Gi/SGi firewalls and advanced machine learning powered DDoS protection are essential. By carefully investing in upgrades to support specific 5G use cases, network operators can monetize their near-term investments and at the same time modernize the existing infrastructure in preparation for the eventual migration to a full 5G architecture.
  • Tunnel Free SD-WAN on Intel® Platforms Recorded: Mar 12 2019 51 mins
    Ritesh Mukherjee, Vice President – Product Management, 128 Technology
    Networking has become painfully complicated. There has been little innovation in routing for decades.
