Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Contracts and SLAs in the SD-WAN Environment

SD-WAN enabled network transformation raises unique issues about the way enterprise customers source and contract for these services. Getting what you bargained for during your contract negotiations is paramount. But maintaining flexibility in your legal arrangements is also critical to ensure your organization maximizes the inherent benefits of moving your network to an SD-WAN solution.

This webinar will examine some of the following issues and offer tips on how to address them in your contracts:

•Avoiding the restrictions (and unexpected costs) imposed by transitioning to SD-WAN from restrictive legacy agreements
•Covering off the major legal and commercial issues in your agreement for SD-WAN services in a global environment
•Maintaining the flexibility to source access components from the lowest cost provider
•Negotiating meaningful and appropriate Service Level Agreements

Andrew Brown from LB3 will also be speaking at the upcoming Wan Summit New York which takes place on 16 & 17 April. To view the full agenda and register your place, visit the website at http://bit.ly/WANSummitNY18

  • FREE WEBINAR: Ready, Set, SD-WAN: Winning the Readiness and Operations Game Recorded: Apr 24 2019 61 mins
    Angelique Medina, Director, Product Marketing, THOUSANDEYES
    Large enterprises are adopting SD-WANs to lower costs, increase business agility and improve performance for multi-cloud applications. Yet many IT managers are grappling with uncertainty concerning remote site readiness and operational risks, which can impede SD-WAN rollouts and negatively impact cloud service and SaaS performance. Lack of underlay visibility also leaves managers unable to manage service-level expectations and ensure a positive ROI.

    Join ThousandEyes in this webinar to learn winning strategies for SD-WAN and hybrid WAN deployments, including:

    • Benchmarking Internet-based and managed service connectivity to
    compare performance, define success and identify KPIs prior to rollout
    • Measure the performance impact of cloud-based security platforms,
    such as Zscaler
    • Eliminate SD-WAN blind spots with hop-by-hop network underlay
    visibility
    • Quickly troubleshoot Internet service provider issues across the
    Internet
    • Define processes for internal stakeholders to gain visibility into
    external providers for managing hybrid connectivity, ISPs, cloud
    services and SaaS applications

  • Best Practices for Architecting Robust BGP Routing Policies – The Global Carrier Recorded: Feb 13 2019 59 mins
    Shawn Morris, Vice President of Systems, Applications and Software (SAS), Global IP Network, NTT Communications
    What actually makes good routing policies "good"? The telecoms industry has mostly focused on teaching each other how to implement BGP features in their networks, but there has been very little dialogue on how to design robust policies. Many global carriers do not even educate their customers on how to use and take advantage of them. In this webinar, NTT Communications and the Global IP Network will offer a conceptual model to look at routing policies, offer terminology to help discuss them, and analyse routing policy design patterns and best practices.

    NTT Communications will also share its experience from creating and deploying large scale complex routing policies in a carrier IP network that you can use to sharpen up your routing policy or even build one from scratch.

  • Navigating Telecom Billing – From Wholesale to Digital Services Recorded: Nov 21 2018 63 mins
    Martin Bedford, Portfolio Head, Debolina Ray, Product Director – Partner Settlement
    The advent of the digital transformation has brought a host of new age content, OTT services, aggregators, IoT offerings and a lot more. There is both a challenge and an opportunity here, and CSPs are already paving the path to evolve into DSPs. There is a balance in the bigger picture as well: to manage and defend traditional business and connectivity; and to look at newer areas, unlock possibilities and thrive in the data business.
    Digital services billing management is a critical element in the CSP transformation process. There is no one-stop approach, but a process that will have various milestones along the digital journey will only help CSPs achieve expansion, trusted partnerships, collaborations and customer satisfaction. The dynamic digital eco-system also brings forth regulatory changes and developments.

    This webinar will be decoding the digital billing conundrum. Spinning off from our recently published POV, we will be talking about how CSPs can expand on their footprint, using their already established infrastructure to:
    1. Simplify the interconnect business models to keep margins clean
    2. Re-look at partnership models, and expand partner base for new revenue streams
    3. Manage customer interaction through different communication channels possibly decreasing cost but increasing coverage
    4. Minimize fraud involving partnerships and content

  • Myths and Realities of SDN –An expert’s insights and best practices Recorded: Feb 27 2018 57 mins
    Shawn Morris, Director of IP Development, Global IP Network, NTT Communications | Natalie Bannerman, Reporter, Capacity media
    In today’s telecom market, tighter margins, tougher competition and the insatiable demand for bandwidth are all forcing global carriers to innovate at the speed of light. Software-defined networking technology, or SDN, seems to be the answer to most of these challenges but as the concept continues gaining fervent adepts (and critics), it is becoming increasingly difficult to get unbiased information to make informed decisions.

    This webinar will provide a thorough analysis of SDN and give attendees some help to make an assessment of their organisation’s readiness and willingness to adopt SDN.

    Key takeaways:
    The technology behind the concept
    What kind of networks are good fits for SDN
    The impact on organizational and operational cultures
    If your organisation should buy or build
    The impact on equipment selection
    The experience of the speaker’s organization with SDN
