Intelligent Peering Solution

Live webinar, June 27th, 2018
8:00 AM PT/11:00 AM ET/15:00 GMT

Internet traffic has seen a compounded annual growth rate of 30% or higher over the last five years, as more devices are connected and more content is consumed, fueled by the demand for video. Traffic will continue to grow as more content sources are added and Internet connections speeds increase. Service and content providers must design their peering networks to scale for a future of more connected devices with traffic sources and destinations spanning the globe. Efficient peering is required to deliver traffic to consumers.

Opening the Final Mobility Frontier – Open vRAN

Live webinar, September 20th, 2018
8:00 AM PT/11:00 AM ET/15:00 GMT

In the evolution to 5G mobile service providers want to open the last proprietary segment of their network – the radio access network (RAN).  This is critical for 5G to better use virtualized (cloud) RAN for densification of coverage.  While an open RAN promises greater flexibility and potentially lower costs, there are also concerns of service assurance in a very critical network domain.  The traditional radio vendors contend that it is necessary to keep this domain as it is – closed – to assure quality.  If we look back to the transition to 3G they said the same thing about the packet core.  The Open vRAN Alliance is an eco‑system of relevant technology companies with the sole aim is to accelerate the telecoms industry to a viable, commercial & open virtual radio ecosystem.  This eco-system is focused on the seamless integration and validation of a fully open RAN domain.

Cisco Virtual Topology System Update and Demo

Live webinar, October 9th, 2018
8:00 AM PT/11:00 AM ET/15:00 GMT

Cisco VTS is an add‑in to Data Center Network Manager which allows configuration and visibility of the EVPN VXLAN protocol deployed on a Nexus switch fabric. VTS is not a full‑fledged SDN controller such as the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) for Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) fabrics, This is by design. It’s an alternative to ACI for customers who need automation and consistent policy configuration but who don’t want to opt into the object‑based policy model of ACI,, which requires a potentially challenging change to how network teams interact with service development, server, storage, and security teams.  Also unlike ACI, VTS also can control supported data center edge routers/switches to provide completely integrated and automated management of the underlay (physical network), which is the sole focus of the network team.
