This webinar takes top to bottom approach on deep dive training of Data Plane Development Kit. The attendees will learn as how various Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) components fit together in delivering final vertical applications such as a router, a security appliance, QoS and load balancer.
Most of the customers and developers are familiar with L2fwd and L3fwd sample applications. However one of the questions that is frequently asked is regarding availability of not only 1) run to completion applications but also 2) pipeline mode applications or 3) a combination of run to completion and pipeline mode application. To clarify, the webinar will classify the key sample applications into the above three categories. We will take two key applications – 1) IP Pipeline and 2) Packet Ordering Sample application and drill down deeper as how customers can map their own application with these architectural usage models. We will do a brief code walk through of one of the application to showcase how professionally the coding is done with great commenting.
While earlier release features were focused on CapEx improvement, such as thread pinning, only polled mode driver, the latest releases are including OpEx improvements also. The audience will learn Release 2.1 and Release 2.2 features from the point of view both CapEx and OpEx improvement.
Data Plane Development Kit is spelled as “P-E-R-F-O-R-M-A-N-C-E”. So, any deep dive presentation is complete only with key performance optimization techniques. So, the attendees will learn top 3 key optimization techniques that they can use while integrating their applications with DPDK.
Learn how a combination of innovative data center cabinets and unique deployment methods significantly reduces CapEX and OpEX without sacrificing performance and scalability. You'll discover how a cabinet's shared Zero-U space supports vertical growth, offers an overall cost savings for cabinets, PDUs and patching of at least 46% and reduces stranded power outlets by 75%. You'll also learn how preconfigured data center cabinet solutions can reduce the labor and time required to go live by as much as 50% while easing scalability and optimizing performance.
Charl Joubert from University of Pretoria in South Africa explains why HP Service Manager with Smart Analytics leverages Big Data to be a game changer for problem management at the service desk and how amazing gains have been measured on daily tasks.
When adding new 10G infrastructure to your network it is best practice to validate performance before making it operational. Yet this step is frequently skipped - increasing the likelihood of future problems such as:
•More time spent troubleshooting
•Sub-optimal application delivery
In this webinar learn how the new OneTouch AT 10G Network Assistant facilitates 10G infrastructure acceptance testing with automated, 1-button standardised testing and reporting.
As if you didn’t know, today’s data center is undergoing a revolution, in large part due to two new advances: software-defined storage and hyper-convergence. Combined, the two advances offer simplicity of deployment and greater flexibility, as well as new operational efficiencies, reducing the need for IT staff specialization and creating time for bigger projects. Learn the hidden secret behind an HP hyper-converged data center, and discover how these two technologies make it possible for you to set up a virtualized server environment that can handle the hyper-growth that today’s business world imposes. And that’s just a small slice of what you’ll learn in this webinar.
COMLINE has updated and improved its datacenter to the next generation, based on HP Cloud Service Automation and HP Operation Orchestration. COMLINE has built a secure and highly automated hybrid cloud architecture to deliver IT services to SMEs throughout Germany from an advanced data centre. Return on investment has been achieved in less than one year along with 80% company productivity gain.
This presentation will cover the need for increasing bandwidth in today's enterprise data centers and building networks. As 10Gb/s speeds become commonplace, 40 and 100Gb/s networks are becoming increasingly common in high speed data center backbones. While single-mode fiber has had the advantage in longer distance links, multimode fiber has held an advantage in short distance Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) based technology. The presentation will discuss work in the fiber industry to develop a next generation multimode fiber that will support multiple wavelengths while maintaining the low cost advantage of VCSEL based technology. It will discuss advances in the transceiver industry that can take advantage of a next generation short wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) multimode fiber. Finally, it will cover the latest work in standards organizations to define this next generation fiber.
Learn about Wide Band Multimode Fiber (WBMMF) -- the application drivers, multiplexing technology, parallel fiber transmission, and Short Wavelength Wave Division Multiplexing. This presentation will also review the cabling evolution roadmap and the WBMMF specification framework.
Avoid EMI while achieving longer distances and higher performance utilizing fiber optics for EtherNet/IP networks across manufacturing zones and devices. In this session, you’ll hear about physical layer best practices and understand proper fiber media selection for each physical layer in the EtherNet/IP network. We will review design recommendations and considerations to help you successfully deploy a robust and secure plant-wide implementation of EtherNet/IP.

Managing physical connectivity layer in any data center is a challenge. In today’s fiber-rich, highly complex, ultra-high density environment of data centers it can seem virtually impossible. So more data centers are relying on automated infrastructure management (AIM) solutions to track and manage their growing network.
Join intelligent connectivity expert Michael German of CommScope for a look at the strategies behind the deployment of AIM systems in data centers
TIA-1179 specifies requirements for telecommunications infrastructure for healthcare facilities. In this webinar learn what the factors are that are driving this standard, the applications that are affected by it and how it differs from other current cabling infrastructure standards.
With today’s high data rate installations, loss budgets are very low and correct testing is paramount. Results from a global survey conducted by Fluke Networks show that more than 90% of contractors surveyed reported at least one problem and more than50% reported six problems on links installed over a 30 day time period! The time and cost for retesting installations is significant and can have a large impact on warranty coverage.
For new high-speed optical networks supporting 40Gbps and 100Gbps Ethernet over multimode fiber (MMF) that use MPO style connector systems, it is critical to have accurate data indicating the performance of the permanent links deployed in the network. It is also important to assure that the links that are deployed by end-users can meet the manufacturer's warranty requirements.
In this presentation, various test methods and best practices, and their impact on measurement accuracy, repeatability and reproducibility are discussed. Use cases for testing MPO-based cable plant supporting higher speed applications are developed with the support of new and recently introduced MPO test sets and reference MPO test cords.
As transmission speeds necessary to handle the growing daily network traffic of the data center increase, the migration from existing systems to 40G/100G requires a new optical fiber paradigm. For the first time, parallel optics is required to deliver the necessary speeds in the network. To use existing installed infrastructure efficiently and maintain the necessary fiber alignment, optical fiber cables constructed of fiber ribbons and associated connectivity provide a most efficient and cost effective solution to meet the needs of this network protocol.
Fiber optic connectors have been around for many years, nearly since the creation of optical fiber itself. A key component of optical fiber is its ability to transmit light signals over long distances without attenuation, in other words without light lost along the optical path. There are many types of connectors to choose from as well as methods to connectorize fiber cables.
