Unified Testing and Assurance for All Stages of 5G Evolution: Why It’s Critical

The next generation of mobile networks - commonly known as 5G - promises a revolution in cellular communications, enabling services such as massive IoT, Fixed Wireless Access and enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB). Based on a completely new radio access and core network design – including slicing, separation of control and user planes and distributed network functions – 5G supports massive density of devices of any kind, operating at increased speeds with minimum latency, while making an efficient use of network resources.

To ensure a successful adoption of this new technology, carriers and equipment manufacturers alike must define an evolution strategy from 4G extensions and 5G non-standalone to true native 5G, and ensure that the infrastructure can handle the requirements of this evolution. A unified approach to testing and assurance, that supports all 5G evolution stages, will be critical to the successful roll out of high quality 5G services.
 
This webinar will cover the following topics:

•  Overview of the evolution path to 5G
•  Critical testing and assurance challenges / needs for each stage
•  Best practices for testing and assurance based on Spirent’s work with providers on the cutting edge of 5G evolution

  • Cloud-First Networking from Big Switch for the Hybrid Cloud Era Recorded: Sep 18 2018 58 mins
    [Big Switch] Prashant Gandhi, VP & Chief Product Officer & Bala Ramachandran, Director of Product Management
    IT Organizations continue to face challenges due to silo'ed approach to hybrid cloud. Current on-prem data centers have completely different style of networking and governance processes compared to networking in public cloud. With silo'ed teams managing these disparate environments, there are greater complexity and constraints in application deployment, higher costs, and longer deployment cycles.

    Big Switch Networks has pioneered a Cloud-First approach which completely re-imagines hybrid cloud networking to enable consistency and control across on-prem and any public cloud (AWS, Azure or GCP). It brings public cloud’s virtual private cloud (VPC) based logical networking construct for on-prem networking (enterprise cloud networking) to deliver network automation and visibility for enterprise workloads. In addition, by extending control, governance and visibility to public cloud VPCs, IT organizations can finally bring their hybrid cloud vision into reality.

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    1)How Big Cloud Fabric implements VPC construct for network automation and visibility in on-prem (enterprise) cloud.
    2)How Big Monitoring Fabric achieves end-to-end visibility and security for applications deployed both on-prem and in public cloud VPCs.
    3)How Multi-Cloud Director enables unified hybrid cloud management across on-prem and multiple public clouds.
