  • Navigate Network Transformation Challenges with SD-WAN Recorded: Mar 26 2020 57 mins
    Joel Stradling , Ankush Badola
    These are uncertain times. Each one of us is responsible for doing our bit for our homes and our workplaces. For those of us specifically tasked to look out for enterprise technology know the importance of leaning into technology in these challenging times. Traffic optimisation, access, remote working challenges, infrastructure optimisation are all actual, everyday problems. We, at Tata Communications, understand this, perhaps more deeply as we work with global organisations to plan, design and build their global networks. Agile, resilient, flexible networks.

    We teamed up with Joel Stradling of Clavem Research who has conducted in depth interviews with enterprises on their digital journeys. One of the topmost questions enterprises are asking is the need to constantly challenge the status quo with new technology and its deployment.

    In this webinar, we look to dispel some myths about SD-WAN, its deployment and establish the criticality of governance around SD-WAN implementation.

    Join us for an interesting conversation with Joel Stradling (Clavem research) and Ankush Badola (Tata Communications) on all things SD-WAN and how it is critical to your network transformation project.

  • Podcast: Isn’t Voice Business dead? Recorded: Aug 13 2019 24 mins
    Mike Sapien Chief Analyst, Enterprise Services Ovum, Peter Quinlan VP Business Collaboration, TATA Communications
    The global voice business has gone through many transitions. With the rise of cloud-based applications, conferencing and collaboration needs within organizations, the demand for voice is ever increasing and continues to be a key piece of human interaction and collaboration with new devices.

    And surely, when it comes to enterprise calling and unified communications, there are plenty of obstacles that can come your way. Local regulations, security issues, each region with its own service providers, landing you with multiple contracts and no unified standard. Not to mention integrating legacy setups and guarding against fraud and billing shocks.

    This podcast reveals how you can combat all these challenges with Global SIP Connect: centralised SIP trunks from a single, expert vendor. Tata Communications helps make lives simpler by:

    - Protecting end users from complexity and packaging up services quickly so customers can focus on their business
    - Delivering quality of service increasing user adoption and acceptance
    - Applying AI to detect fraudulent usage patterns with real-time alerts
    - Facilitating critical exchanges only for the duration of that transaction in 20+ countries that are compliant with regulations
    - Providing destination-based pricing with a single contract and a global service
    - Offering a standardized architecture from a service provider with a Tier 1 carrier-grade network as well as a software API based interface.
  • Overcoming Key Barrier to SD-WAN Adoption in the Enterprise Journey to the Cloud Recorded: Jun 24 2019 53 mins
    Rajesh Ghai Research Director, Carrier Network Infrastructure IDC, Rajesh Ghai Director, Carrier Network Infrastructure
    Enterprises have embraced cloud computing to unlock the opportunity offered by digital transformation. The cloud’s flexibility and agility enable enterprises to grow their business without borders and ensure productivity and efficiency.

    While enterprise applications continue to migrate to the cloud, the necessary change in the wide area network (WAN) is often overlooked. The hub-and-spoke WAN architecture that served the needs of the enterprise when applications were delivered from the datacenter, must evolve to serve the needs of the era of cloud applications. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the WAN's response to this paradigm shift in application traffic to the cloud.

    While SD-WAN has emerged as a key enabler of secure and seamless direct cloud application access with the benefits of transport independence, better security and path selection, it has brought into focus the importance of the transport underlay and the technology investment — both past and future — that an enterprise needs to consider before adopting SD-WAN.

    This webinar spotlights two critical success factors for driving mainstream enterprise adoption of SD-WAN:

    *Predictable and robust Internet connectivity
    *Investment protection (of installed legacy network equipment or in new technology) as the WAN evolves to support applications delivered from the cloud.

    Join us at this webinar as we make sense of SD-WAN adoption for your company.

  • Debunking SD-WAN Myths for Effective Enterprise Network Transformation Recorded: Sep 28 2017 61 mins
    Joel Stradling, Research Director, Global Data, Peter Juffernholz, Associate VP Global Network Services, TATA Communications
    Many enterprises are currently on a trajectory for virtualizing their network services. There is a clear evolution path emerging - one that is taking customers from their legacy IP and Ethernet VPNs towards Hybrid VPNs - whereby the Internet is increasingly taking traffic loads and must be business-grade, and then towards SDN/NFV.

    The next phase of the customer WAN journey is already underway for many enterprises. SD-WAN services are now available from a large variety of suppliers including telcos, systems integrators, platform developers, hardware vendors, cloud providers and software developers. The SD-WAN term has become a huge buzzword gleefully bandied about by many in technology, but what are the real underlying issues that enterprises must consider? How can enterprises guarantee a consistent customer experience for application and network performance across the distributed WAN locations?

    Join Joel Stradling - Global Data’s Research Director for Global Managed and Hosted IT Services, and Peter Juffernholz – Senior Network Executive from Tata Communications in a live webinar.
