The evolution of the virtualisation marketplace

In the new age of technology, customers increasingly need to deliver services on a platform defined by flexibility and agility. The future promises to enable this with a mass transformation to more attractive, hardware-free, network-solutions.

We’ve already witnessed the arrival of Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) — moving away from the necessity for box connectivity and towards an array of virtualised services across a software-defined network. But when the global NFV/SDN market is set to grow at a CAGR of 25 per cent between 2018 and 2023 , how can we expect the network evolution to continue into the years ahead?

With the emergence of IoT, the growth of 5G capabilities and the unbounded possibilities of edge computing, the future of the virtualisation marketplace becomes a huge and exciting unknown. How can businesses cater for such disruptive and expansive transformation?

  • Transforming to a digital network – How are you measuring success? Recorded: Nov 21 2018 38 mins
    Keith Langridge & Darren Overall from BT, and Stephen Smith & Mark Jopling from Riverbed Technology Inc.
    CEOs are adopting a digital first approach to match customer needs, but how are they measuring success?

    Digital technology changes how we do almost everything, and this pace of change continues to accelerate. When it’s built into the core of your business strategy it can help your company thrive - make you quicker, lighter and more responsive.

    But there’s a twist. A recent survey suggests that important digital services and applications are failing and letting 80% of you down.

    The stark reality is, that in a lot of cases the promise of digital is not living up to expectations and in many cases it’s becoming even harder to operate in an increasingly cloud-oriented world.

    Join us on a webinar on 21 November to discover how to measure if your business really has become more agile and responsive. We’ll talk about how to get full end-to-end performance visibility and control of your global applications and network infrastructure. With actionable data you can quickly tweak and improve performance and service levels and show the impact of the digital services you’ve deployed.

    You’ll be in a better position to respond to the changing needs of your business, establish whether your digital technologies are delivering what you need them to and tune them to deliver a successful outcome.

  • How to Create an SD-WAN Strategy That Delivers On Its Promise Recorded: Jun 29 2018 55 mins
    Keith Langridge and Adrian Comley from BT, together with Dominic Elliott from Cisco
    Why deployment of an SD-WAN is a team sport

    You have been sold the promise of an SD-WAN, to help you meet the bandwidth demands of an explosion of traffic on your network. It should deliver an increased understanding of the performance of applications and it can give you greater control. That’s the promise. The reality, as we have seen time and time again as new technologies arrive on the scene, is often quite different.

    Deploying an SD-WAN, including a Cisco SD-WAN, is like running a Formula 1 car. It’s a team sport. The design and development of the car itself doesn’t necessarily mean you can win the Formula 1 championship. You need the driver, the pit crew, the investment in aerodynamics and constant technological developments to be successful.

    In this webinar we’ll talk about how to take the best Cisco SD-WAN technology and make it deliver on the promise. We’ll cover the key components which make it a “title winning” solution – underlay, advanced reporting, orchestration, services support, testing and security.
  • SD-WAN and NFV: beyond the hype Recorded: May 22 2018 55 mins
    Keith Langridge, VP Network Services, BT and Adrian Comley, General Manager Dynamic Network Services, BT
    SD-WAN and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) are two technologies that are on every business’s radar right now. SD-WAN can help to take away a lot of the complexity you’d find in a traditional network from a routing and configuration perspective. NFV can promise to cut the IT clutter from your business. Both of these technologies offer great advantages, but if you’re considering them, the question is, are you doing it because you want to jump on an industry trend, or have you truly considered the business benefits for your organisation?

    Join Keith Langridge, VP Network Services, BT and Adrian Comley, General Manager Dynamic Network Services, BT, as they take a look at:
    •The business challenges that are leading many to invest in these solutions.
    •The learnings from our global deployments to date.
    •DIY versus a managed service - the added demands of delivery, skills, security and on-going support can mean that managed is often the preferred option. We’ll give you our view on the value you should expect from a managed service.
