Navigating the SDN Landscape: A New Roadmap for Networks

Join Paul Congdon, CTO of Tallac Networks and former CTO of HP Networking, for a frank discussion of Software-Defined Networking's
strengths and it's weaknesses.
Find out how much truth there is in the common criticisms of SDN, for example:
(a) SDN requires a fork-lift upgrade of your network
(b) SDN requires a complete rethink of 25 years of networking
(c) Flow-based forwarding doesn't scale
(d) SDN introduces a single point of failure
Take advantage of this opportunity to hear the views of one of the industry's most experienced professionals and to have your questions addressed during the Q/A session.
Find out more about the most important networking trend since IP from one of its pioneers.

  • Operationalizing the cloud-Ensuring fast, successful & repeatable NFV deployment Recorded: Jun 8 2016 61 mins
    Andreas Lemke – CloudBand Product marketing & Ranny Haiby, Principal Systems Architect, Nokia
    The concept of NFV has been around for several years already and its benefits need no further explanation. However, it is fast becoming clear that actually getting Virtual Network Functions (VNF) to run seamlessly on the select software & hardware infrastructure proves to be a challenging task. It requires a significant amount of engineering work to get even a single VNF to run on a new platform and tweaks and tricks are often required, both on the VNF and on the NFVI side. In this webinar we will address these challenges and present a systematic verification and validation methodology based on devops concepts, employing a high level of automation that ensures successful VNF deployments – all the time, every time.
  • Introducing OSM – Open Source MANO for NFV Recorded: Apr 12 2016 60 mins
    Francisco-Javier Ramón, Head of Network Virtualisation, GCTO Unit, Telefónica
    This webinar will present the brand new Open Source MANO (OSM) community, recently launched under the umbrella of ETSI, and holding its first official meeting on 5th April.

    OSM is focused on delivering an open source Management and Orchestration (MANO) stack for NFV capable of meeting the requirements of production NFV networks while consuming an established common Information Model (IM) – all defined, implemented and released in open source software.

    This session will describe:
    •the critical challenges that NFV Management and Orchestration must address
    •the foundational concepts of OSM and how they help to manage MANO complexity
    •how the initial software drop works
    •what are the modalities of engagement with the OSM Community
  • Using OpenStack for NFV – A Carrier Perspective Recorded: Mar 1 2016 61 mins
    Peter Willis, Chief Researcher, Data Networks, BT
    At the SDN World Congress last year, 6 challenges that are preventing network operators from using OpenStack for Distributed NFV deployments – specifically for virtual CPE or vBranch use cases – were presented by BT.

    This webinar will further explore these challenges and will begin to identify solutions, which in the short-term range from leveraging existing Linux capabilities, selective use of OpenStack, and other open source projects like OpenDaylight. This webinar will also identify promising OpenStack blueprints and projects for longer-term solutions.
  • Carrier Aggregation in Microwave Backhaul Recorded: Feb 9 2016 52 mins
    Paolo Di Prisco, Mobile Networks Product Manager, Nokia
    Thanks to its ease of deployment and relatively low cost compared to fiber, microwave remains a widely used technology for transport, especially for mobile backhaul application. The introduction of 5G, Internet of Things and Cloud will lead to a tremendous increase in the volume of data traffic. In order to cope and deliver the requested capacity, new concepts and approaches are needed. The combination of several frequencies with different physical properties will be one path explored by the industry actors.
    This webinar explains the concepts of Carrier aggregation in microwave and millimeter waves, illustrates the benefits and describes the challenges for next steps.

  • Modernizing the BSS/OSS for SDN & NFV Recorded: Oct 7 2015 61 mins
    Mark Bieberich Senior Director of Strategy for SDN/NFV Solutions & Ari Banerjee Senior Director Strategy, NetCracker
    For service providers migrating to SDN and NFV, operationalizing new, virtualized services in a hybrid environment requires modernizing the existing BSS/OSS environment and unifying cloud, resource and service orchestration. Without both, monetizing new applications and services is exceedingly difficult if not impossible. In this webinar, NEC/NetCracker will discuss the migration path to generating revenue from new, virtualized services and applications, highlighting practical recommendations for modernizing the BSS/OSS alongside essential orchestration solutions.

  • vIMS & vEPC up and running in 30 minutes for VoLTE Cloud Advantage Recorded: Sep 25 2014 62 mins
    Phil Tilley : Marketing Director Cloud Solutions & Ted East: VP Cloud Innovations Centre, Alcatel-Lucent
    NFV has been full of automation and virtualization promise and now is the time to understand the reality of the developments. NFV is not only about Management and Network Orchestration but also understanding the status of the Virtual Network Functions software and the integration with a virtualised network.

    In less than the length of this webinar we will see how a new VoLTE cloud installation including vEPC and vIMS can be built on a cloud platform. The webinar will start with an NFV platform and by means of analytics, engineering rules and policies finish with a VoLTE service and in between we will explain what steps have been made to assist the full automation of this process and indicate where progress is still required.

    Alcatel-Lucent has more experience in NFV and SDN than any other vendor having been first to market with a solution, run over 30 NFV projects, pulled together an ecosystem of over 40 members and an active participant in the ETSI working group meetings.
    During this webinar Phil Tilley and Ted East will highlight the progress made and indicate the lessons learnt and major considerations when making NFV and SDN decisions.
    The presentation and demonstration will be followed with a live Q&A session where attendees can seek further views from the speakers.
