The New Age of African Subsea: Projects, Trends and Opportunities

The subsea cable industry in Africa has been slow to develop in the last 10 years, likely because it is difficult to make a business case for building new cables without the demand for capacity. This is beginning to change and we are seeing renewed interest in investing, largely from OTTs. Is this the start of a new era of investment and cable builds across the continent?

  • The Myths and Realities of SDN – Best Practices and Lessons Learned Sep 30 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Shawn Morris, Vice President, Systems, Applications & Software, Global IP Network Division of NTT Ltd
    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 view of SDN through the lens of a carrier network and give attendees some help to assess their organisation’s readiness and willingness to adopt SDN.

    Capacity Media and NTT Ltd will host a live webinar on Thursday 30 September at 4pm London time (5pm Central European Time / 11am New York time) to discuss Software-defined networking technology (SDN) from the point of view of a carrier network and give attendees some help to assess their organisation’s readiness and willingness to adopt SDN.

    During this webinar, participants will:

    - Explore the technology behind the concept,
    - Understand the impact on organizational and operational cultures, and;
    - Learn from the case study that is NTT Ltd's experience with SDN.

    The discussion will be led by Shawn Morris - Vice President, Systems, Applications & Software, Global IP Network Division of NTT Ltd.
  • Digital Corridors: Why the Middle East Is A Growing Hotspot for Digital Exchange Recorded: Aug 5 2021 61 mins
    Capacity Media
    This webinar offers a spotlight on the Muscat IBX data center (MC1) and Internet Exchange, a joint venture between Equinix and Omantel, are strategically located in the heart of the digital ecosystem connecting Asia, Africa and Europe. This partnership is capitalizing on a unique strategy to extend the reach of the subsea cables landing in Muscat to MC1. This confluence of cable systems with carrier-neutral colocation, interconnection and peering has accelerated the growth of digital corridors linked with Oman including dynamic markets like Singapore and Pakistan as well as the local market, and this is expected to continue to grow further. In partnership with Equinix and Omantel.
  • How to keep your network safe from DDoS attacks – a practical guide Recorded: Jul 29 2021 56 mins
    Darren Grabowski, Network Security Team Manager, Global IP Network Division of NTT Ltd
    Are you ready to respond to a DDoS attack? Do you have a defence plan in place? DDoS attacks can strike at any time, potentially crippling network infrastructure and severely degrading user experience. Depending on their type and severity, the impact can result in damaged infrastructure, lost revenue, decreased productivity and irreparable harm to your organization’s brand and resources.

    This webinar will discuss the latest trends in DDoS attacks, who the potential targets are and the effects on assets and organizations. Most importantly, this session will provide you with invaluable information to help you get ready for and deal with a DDoS attack, including:

    • How to plan before you get attacked
    • What to do when attacked
    • Basic approaches to DDoS attack mitigation
  • Top 5 Reasons to Deploy 800G Coherent Transmission Recorded: Jul 28 2021 62 mins
    Geoff Bennett, Director, Solutions & Technology, Infinera
    Hosted by Capacity Media and Infinera, the live webinar will take place on July 28 at 4pm BST (5pm CEST).

    Coherent transmission has been deployed in optical transport networks for over a decade. In that time, individual wavelength data rates have increased by a factor of 20 – from 40 Gb/s in 2009 to 800 Gb/s today, over five generations of coherent technology.

    From a network operator perspective, upgrading transponder technology is a non-trivial decision – operators need to have very good justifications for deploying a follow-on generation.

    This webinar will focus on the top five reasons that network operators should consider an 800G solution and will suggest a minimum goal for the added value of moving through coherent generations in real network deployments.

    Join Capacity Media and Infinera on July 28 at 4pm BST to learn more.
  • How Satellite Operators and Telcos Must Work Together Recorded: Jun 9 2021 48 mins
    Arthur D. Little, OneWeb, SES Networks, Telesat and Telstra
    With today’s new satellite mega-constellations springing up in low-earth orbit (LEO) and plans for huge rollouts over the coming years from the likes of SpaceX, OneWeb and Amazon, space may overhaul the global connectivity landscape.

    There are major growth opportunities for telecommunications companies (telcos) and satellite operators, as technologies such as 5G, edge computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) become mainstream.

    But telcos and satellite operators will need to work together to support this emerging “space race.” Satellite operators, in particular, should consider leveraging the extensive IP networks that telcos already have, and their other assets and relationships worldwide.

    Join us as our guests look at what the future holds for the telcos and satellite operators and what steps do these “frenemies” need to take together to make the most of the vast potential benefits on offer from this new frontier.
