  • Lee Smith (Dee Smith & Associates) and David Cuthbertson (SMS) will cover their approach and methods of assessing existing data centre facilities and management processes. Rapid changes in both IT and data centre technologies often mean that facilities and management techniques fail to evolve fast enough, with the data centre potentially being the weak link in the delivery chain of all IT services. Achieving a baseline through an assessment is critical for any improvement or transformation activity - but is not so easy to do in practice.
  • Many companies struggle with how to sell effectively with different brands, platforms, and divisions. One company, Cenveo, has tackled this challenge head-on with Sales Cloud and Data.com, working through culturally diverse business units, data silos owned by territorial sales reps, and challenges cross selling.

    There are many approaches to achieve more effective selling which we will explore with Jason Jordan of Vantage Point Performance, author of the best-selling book, Cracking the Sales Management Code.

    Jason will share best practices that drive business results and Kathy Coates, VP of Platform Sales Technology at Cenveo, will share how Cenveo:

    -Saw immediate results from bringing together sales for 3 separate brands
    -Reinvented how they sell--and changed their company culture
    -Achieved more visibility into their entire pipeline than ever before
    -Discovered new opportunities through account hierarchies
    -Gained "eye-opening" insights on their customers

  • Key Deployment Strategies for Voice and Video over LTE Recorded: Nov 17 2011 59 mins
    Mobile operators are moving to all-IP LTE architectures in order to cost-effectively meet consumer demand for advanced voice, video, and messaging services. This migration is complex and challenging and operators need an architecture that is both flexible and capable in order to evolve at an acceptable pace while preserving service quality and reliability.

    Learn how to enable mobile operators to efficiently migrate to an intelligent next-generation mobile network for the optimized delivery of advanced voice, video, and SMS services.
  • Architecting Mobile Backhaul for the Next Generation Internet Recorded: Oct 27 2011 64 mins
    Learn about techniques that are proving to improve profitability of Mobile Backhaul networks by:

    + Reducing OPEX by as much as 70% via backhaul network efficiency gains
    + Scaling networks on-demand to meet 100 times the traffic
    + Simplifying network operations by unifying the network to backhaul any multi-vendor radio over any media
    + Reducing the complexity and cost of operating, deploying, and scaling backhaul of multivendor, multigenerational Radio Access Networks (RANs)
    + Optimizing architecture with specific network designs to meet unique customer needs in this session

    Mobile Backhaul networks continue to strain under the load of exponential Mobile Internet traffic growth. To alleviate the resulting financial pressure of accompanying increases in operating expenses, as well as to scale the networks to meet the ever increasing mobile broadband demand, operators must optimize and cost effectively overhaul these networks. Upgrading the Radio Access Network (RAN) is arguably the most critical investment mobile operators are making in 2010-2012 as they migrate from 2G to 3G+ to improve OPEX, increase teledensity, and unlock additional "Mobile Internet" revenue opportunities.
