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

Journey to Automate the Business of Communications

Join the leaders from some of the largest international carriers as they present how the industry plans to transform the business of communications by automating the settlement of traffic using Distributed Ledger Technologies.

In June 2019, the ITW Global Leaders’ Forum announced a project to develop a DLT-based platform, which will revolutionise the ICT Service Provider industry’s commercial settlement infrastructure. This represents an opportunity worth billions to the global industry from costs savings and revenues from new products and services. Since then, over 20 carriers and technology providers have worked together to develop the technical architecture and governance framework for the platform, which will be presented during the webinar.

Senior representatives from the project’s founding carriers and from the participating technology providers, are ready to share their insights in a one-hour interactive webinar.

You will:
• Learn how leading carriers and technology providers have collaborated to create an inclusive and interoperable framework for automated inter-ICT Service Provider settlement
• Understand exactly what the development of this platform means for the industry
• Look to the future: how the ecosystem can evolve to facilitate new services such as NB-IoT, VoLTE, etc.
• Learn how you can participate: any ICT Service Provider, Technology Provider or Industry Association is invited to join and we will discuss the benefits of being a part and contributing to this ecosystem.

One credible option is the creation of shared networks ensuring access and competitive pricing for all 5G network operators. Join us to discuss why the future of 5G is a shared one.

    Who is best placed to operate a shared network?
    What can lessons can the CIS take from other 5G network sharing projects?
    What do global 4G network sharing projects teach us about 5G?

  • The New NetFlow: A 20-Year-Old Secret for Better Network Management Recorded: Sep 17 2019 59 mins
    Jim Meehan, Director of Product Marketing | Kentik
    It’s been more than 20 years since Cisco first introduced NetFlow as a scalable way to track network activity without collecting raw packets. To this day, network operators who use NetFlow and other types of flow data for network management still report the benefits, which include a lightweight monitoring footprint, faster troubleshooting, more effective planning, and automated security.

    However, when any technology survives for two decades, it raises the question: Is NetFlow outdated? Are there other data sources and technologies that are newer, faster, and more detailed for achieving network visibility?

    In this webinar, Kentik’s Jim Meehan, head of product marketing, will advise on why NetFlow is better than ever and remains an invaluable source of truth for network operators looking to get immediate answers to network questions. Meehan will answer:

    What’s new with NetFlow?
    Why is NetFlow more useful than ever before?
    What are the new native fields in NetFlow that extend visibility to/from firewalls, load balancers, and MPLS?
    And how can you achieve enrichment by adding data that’s not within flow records?

    Webinar Speaker:
    Jim Meehan is a long-time network enthusiast, founding one of Chicago's first dial-up ISPs in the early 1990s. His career includes stints in network operations and vendor pre-sales engineering, including 10+ years at Arbor Networks. Currently he leads the Product Marketing team at Kentik.

  • 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.


    ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
