Cloud-First Networking from Big Switch for the Hybrid Cloud Era
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.

VoerEir focus on helping operators be successful with their NFV transformation. A cornerstone in our strategy is our list of NFVI performance-KPIs, which determine the performance of VNFs deployed on top of a specific NFVI. There are two prime use cases of these KPIs; First, for a VNF vendor to be able to commit to a performance SLA, the vendor must know the characteristics of the infrastructure on which his VNF shall be deployed. Second, if a VNF does not fulfill his performance SLAs, the operator must be able to sort out where the responsibility lays, on the VNF or the NFVI vendor. The tricky part is to find the KPIs which are essential for different types of VNFs' performance. This webinar describes VoerEir’s way of reasoning when creating the list of performance-KPIs and gives examples of detailed definitions for different kinds of KPIs. It also talks about how VoerEir is working with this in industry forums, and how our test system Touchstone can is used to perform VoerEir’s NFVI evaluation service.

Diego Lozano de Fournas, Sr. Technical Marketing Manager, Spirent and Ram Garapaty, Sr. Product Manager, Spirent
Major outages and service disruptions in mobile networks are already too common. Whether it’s a multi-million dollar fine for a public safety outage, viral news coverage of poor performance at a major sporting event or lost revenue due to a national network outage – the consequences of major network performance issues are severe. Today’s approach to managing performance simply isn’t working and guess what? 5G is going to make it much more challenging. We need a new approach to validating and assuring performance. A unified approach that helps engineering and operations teams work together more effectively to proactively avoid and rapidly resolve issues.
During this webinar, Intel® Network Builders partner Spirent will cover the following topics:
•Today’s network performance challenge and the implications of 5G
•How to head off issues with performance validation in the lab
•The limitations of traditional passive monitoring approaches for assuring 5G performance
•Techniques for proactive detection and fast isolation of performance issues that complement passive monitoring weaknesses
•How a unified approach to validation and assurance helps engineering and operations to work together to improve performance and save millions/yr

Mike Neff, AVP Virtualized Solutions & Biz Dev., KGPCo and Pate Prayson CTO of Edge Cloud at ADVA
While service providers understand the benefits of virtualized products and services, few have experienced it. It is clear to them that they must evolve their network rather than continue the status quo. As the effort to transform legacy network services increases, service providers will seek the most efficient and cost-effective means in which to do so. KGPCo will be the catalyst for such an evolution.
Matt Roman, VP of Marketing and Product Management, Edgecore Networks
New innovations are occurring in Open Networking switch design to support next generation cloud first architectures and the coming rollout of 5G mobile networks. The status quo of closed proprietary vendor designs is quickly being replaced with open devices that include high performance packet processors as well as powerful multicore CPU systems that not only support the switch Network Operating System but also support containerized value-added functions such as application analytics, network telemetry and packet shaping. This webinar will provide insights into the evolution of data center switches, core routers, mobile backhaul and FTTX network devices.

Ultimately, SD-WAN has been the highest growing segment in the transition from the traditional business model to a virtualized Software Defined infrastructure. The trend of disaggregation in the network continues but ultimately, it is still in its early adoption stage in deployments. Considering the predicted growth in the SD-WAN market, several factors are to be considered when adopting the strategy of disaggregation and virtualization with Whitebox Solutions.
Deployments are rolling out now as we speak and what will the network look like in about five years from now when early adoption is hitting mainstream.

Manish Singh, Sr. VP - Network Services at Tech Mahindra
Tech Mahindra has geared up to support CSPs in their migration to 5G. As a Global SI (Systems Integrator), we are an Innovation Orchestrator closely collaborating with our ecosystem partners of innovators and disruptors. Network of the Future will be dynamically sliced and differentially priced. Network Slicing will enable CSPs to create different logical networks, on a shared Telco Cloud infrastructure, with varying capabilities that best meet the varying requirements of different applications. Throughput, latency, security, mobility requirements can all vary from application to application. Furthermore, economic models across MBB, MIoT and uRLLC will greatly vary and in turn will put varying demands on the network.
