Automation and Distributed Computing

Innovation driven by cloud, NFV, IOT, video content and virtual reality is compelling the delivery of increasingly distributed computing options. These environments will need to support technical requirements such as latency, connectivity and power management while adhering to regulator factors such as HIPPA data security. Distributed computing will require a number of infrastructure form factors such as HCI, private cloud and embedded computing paired with a myriad of operational environments process such Nutanix, Azure and OpenStack. All these are delivered in diverse partnerships and business models.

In this presentation, we will discuss automation opportunities that allow all stakeholders to effectively deploy and monitor the underlying infrastructure while orchestrating and managing individual functions that make up the distributed computing services - all with minimal and often remote support staff.

  • 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

    Derek Granath, VP Product Marketing, Silver Peak; Greg Taylor, Head of IT infrastructure, Gerresheimer AG; Sab Gosal, Intel
    Today’s digitally-driven business model, the rapid adoption of cloud services and shifting traffic patterns are causing IT professionals to re-evaluate WAN architecture. In parallel, there is increasing pressure on enterprise IT to enhance business agility by bringing new sites and new applications online more quickly.

    Software-defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) provide an entirely new, business-driven approach to the WAN. They enable active, secure use of multiple forms of transport services, including broadband, to connect users to applications – wherever they reside. This not only improves application performance but also increases resiliency. Centralized orchestration and zero-touch provisioning greatly simplify the tasks of deploying new sites or applications, often eliminating the requirement to send IT experts out to branch locations.

    This webinar will reveal how an advanced business-driven SD-WAN can become a strategic accelerant for an enterprise’s digital transformation initiatives. You will learn how Gerresheimer, a global manufacturer of specialty glass products, deployed the Silver Peak EdgeConnect SD-WAN platform to augment MPLS with lower cost, high speed broadband services to achieve a 2x to 3x increase in application performance while lowering overall bandwidth costs. Greg Taylor, Head of IT Infrastructure, will describe how adopting a business-driven SD-WAN delivers a better, more predictable and consistent quality of experience for Gerresheimer employees around the world.
  • Automating your way past NFV complexity Recorded: Oct 23 2018 47 mins
    Paul Brittain, VP Product Strategy, Metaswitch
    Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is the future network architecture that almost all Telcos/CSPs desire. For many, though, it is proving an elusive goal despite the shift that IT made to cloud several years back. Network Functions are just another class of x86 workload, so why is this seemingly so hard?

    Much of the problem is due to treating NFV as purely an engineering challenge, characterized by chasing a “Telco Cloud” fit for all possible purposes. That is genuinely a tough project, but NFV will also impact many processes and people across your organization. Automation may appear to add yet more change to be managed, but it is actually key to making NFV attainable. This webinar will show how, with Cloud Native VNFs and an agile approach to Automation, you can clear both the technical and operational roadblocks on the path to a fully virtualized network.
