Self-Configuring NFV Packaged Solutions- for Fast and Flexible Deployment
Date: 8/21/2019 9:00 a.m. Los Angeles / 12:00 p.m. New York/ 5:00 p.m. London
More information and registration

NFV solutions have been available for seven years, but have yet to go mainstream. Service providers believe that NFV is very complex to implement, though critical to their overall business strategies over the next five years, in the race to get to 5G.

Join this webinar and learn how F5 is making purchasing, sizing and deployments of NFV easier.

What you will learn:

  • How to size your service deployments
  • How to Develop deploy new services (and terminate them) at the click of a button.
  • How to automate your service deployments from the start.

Disaggregated Networking Technology: What's behind the promises of the new web-scale disaggregated router?
Date: 9/4/2019 12:00 p.m New York / 5:00 p.m London
More information and registration

The wide adoption of cloud services changed the architecture of large data centers, driven by new virtualization technologies, low cost white-boxes and the development of automated operations. In contrast, service providers’ network architecture has remained almost the same for the last 30 years, with expensive propriety hardware, multi-layer architecture and dedicated systems per network service. While NFV attempted to bring some of the data center virtualization efficiencies to networking, it has been limited to just a few services and low-throughput access solutions.

The emergence of networking merchant silicon technologies opened the door for service providers to embrace web-scale networking by adopting the architectural concepts of large clouds. CSPs can now build high-scale converged infrastructures that support any service on any port, with cloud-native software and microservices. Such a disaggregated approach can scale higher than any traditional approach, at a much lower TCO.

Join this webinar and learn about the technologies and architecture behind the disaggregated router.

What you will learn:

  • What exactly is disaggregated routing
  • How does disaggregated network compare with the current networking models
  • What are the challenges of scaling a disaggregated network to the capacity and availability requirements of service providers

Leveraging Routing Analytics to Enable Intent-based Automation
Date: 9/10/2019 10:00 a.m New York / 3:00 p.m London
More information and registration

A number of solutions exist to monitor the routing health of your network, but analytics at scale without an automation mitigation strategy can be tedious and even ineffective. The true challenge with any network analytics capability is how to automatically translate those insights into actionable intelligence.

In this webinar, we will focus on how to bridge the gap between the passive monitoring of routing analytics and active network risk mitigation. In addition, we will examine the challenges of an on-premises deployment and the advantages gained by utilizing a cloud-based SaaS approach to analytics.

On this webinar you will learn:

  • The pros and cons of on-premises vs cloud management of large, variable routing data.
  • How to make your network more manageable and analytics more accessible.
  • How to operationalize analytics streams - making analytics intent-driven, not just an awareness tool.

How to Get Extraordinary Value Out of 5G With Agile Operations
Date: 9/11/2019 10:00 a.m New York / 3:00 p.m London
More information and registration

The 5G era will change everything for service providers but they will need to quickly launch entirely new services, embrace new ecosystems, and try new business models if they are to capture part of the US$2 trillion marketplace.

To be successful, service provides need to be more agile. They need to develop platforms for new services, so you can create, deliver, assure and monetize them with greater speed. Cloud-native network functions and operations automation, including DevOps, all help service providers be more agile. They enable on-the-go, highly customized digital services, underpinned by closed-loop, end-to-end service lifecycle management.

But it’s not just the tools; with an agile mindset and operational processes, service providers can seize opportunities as soon as they appear, and launch new services faster. This webinar will examine how 5G ecosystem operations and DevOps can contribute to significant revenue growth and reduce time-to-market.

Doing More With Less - How to Get More Out of Your HFC Network While Holding the Line on Opex
Date: 9/18/2019 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m London
More information and registration

Relentless competition is driving cable operators to squeeze more bandwidth out of their HFC networks within their existing opex budgets, a seemingly impossible task. In this webinar, we will share how operators are turning to signal leakage applications beyond government-mandated testing in light of recent tech breakthroughs, dramatically improving both plant integrity and subscriber QoE while spending no more on opex.

Bringing HDR video to Life
Date: 9/19/2019 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m London
More information and registration

In their drive to sell more 4K TVs, consumer electronics makers are embracing HDR, or High Dynamic Range, a technique that expands the range of both color and contrast significantly on a TV set. This technology makes images appear to have more depth and richness. But it puts even more bandwidth and compression demands on pay-TV providers. How can cable operators meet those demands? In this session, we’ll look at what’s possible.

Automating the Cable Network

More information and registration

Like other network operators, cable providers are seeking to automate their networks for a variety of reasons, including simplifying network provisioning, scaling services more efficiently, gaining more insights into their customers and cutting operational costs. They are also looking to boost bandwidth utilization and service quality. But putting AI and automation to work is no easy task. In this session, we’ll focus on where the industry stands with automation now and how operators can make strides.

Securing the Cable Network

Wary of the increasing number of hacks into enterprise and consumer data networks, cable technologists are pursuing ways to protect their increasingly complex networks and their customers from cyber attacks. CableLabs, for instance, is developing a “Micronets” framework to safeguard the home network. In this session, experts from CableLabs and elsewhere will discuss what cable operators can do to keep the bad guys out.

Virtualizing the Cable Architecture

While DOCSIS may never die, it's not the only transmission technology in cable's arsenal anymore. With the industry's growing emphasis on Fiber Deep and FTTH rollouts, cable operators are increasingly turning to EPON, 10G EPON and other PON flavors to move bits over their fiber-rich networks. Where does the industry stand with PON now? What kinds of trials, pilots and rollouts are happening? How will NG-PON get deployed? In this session, our experts will assess PON's prospects in the DOCSIS world.
