Mission-Critical Broadband – The Mobile Network Operator’s Vital Role
Date: 6/21/2018 11:00 a.m New York / 4:00 p.m London
More information and registration

Many governments around the globe are seeking to take advantage of mobile broadband technologies to improve the capabilities of emergency services communications. Several deployment models exist in which mobile network operators (MNO) and governments are partnering to provide network services and applications that will help meet the increasing demand to give first responders better situational awareness and improved responsiveness.

In this webinar, AT&T, CritComm Insights and Nokia examine the opportunity as well as the challenges around the delivery of mission-critical communications.

The agenda includes three major topics:

  • CritComm Insight will cover information about the importance of mission-critical data communications, technology status, global trends and the increasing role of MNOs.
  • As the public-private partner selected by the First Responder Network Authority to build and deliver FirstNet – America’s first nationwide communications platform dedicated to public safety – AT&T will provide a view into serving public safety and meeting its rigorous requirements.
  • Nokia will highlight some of the business considerations of interest to both MNOs and public safety agencies with regard to network deployment and operations.

The Evolution of Identity Management – What Does It Mean for Service Providers?
Date: 6/26/2018 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m London
More information and registration

Efficiently managing the identity information of subscribers has always been a priority for telco operators. However, the evolution toward multi-devices and multi-services experience have forced Service Providers toward a more holistic approach of managing identities across different domains and technologies.

Accordingly, this webinar will examine the evolution of identity management documenting the drivers and timeline for service providers to expand their identity management network capabilities. In addition to network considerations, the webinar will also focus on identity management from a service delivery perspective capturing how progressive service providers are turning to an open management identity structure to enable them to move beyond a pure telco model to become facilitators of cross-device, cross-service personalized experiences in the digital identity age.

Topics to be addressed in this webinar include:

  • The drivers and timeline for service providers to expand their identity management capabilities.
  • Today’s hot use-case examples: T-Mobile’s Digits, V-by-Vodafone, GSMA’s Mobile Connect, Apple Companion Devices, GDPR identity capture
  • Identity management techniques - key functions required to implement a future -looking framework for Open Identity management.
  • 5G ready networks - The era of 5G-powered experiences starts today with Intel® technologies.

Segment Routing: The Unified Tunnel in the Future Network
Date: 6/27/2018 9:00 a.m New York / 2:00 London
More information and registration

Currently, the development of network technology is driven by two main directions. First, the development of SDN technology; and second, the development of cloud, especially the trend of the integration between the cloud and the network. These are both driving the rapid evolution of network technology.

In traditional network technology, the first stage is native IP, with the goal being connectivity, and the second stage is to base the MPLS technology, it’s goal is for it to be multi-service bearing. Many technologies have been developed for tunneling and service. However, as the requirement changes and the service automation and other aspects are increasing, the traditional MPLS-based technologies become unsatisfactory. In this case, the segment routing technology is coming. It has the advantages of simplified network, high reliability and support for large-scale networks.

This talk will present the problem faced by traditional technologies in the new network requirements, and how segment routing solves these problems. At the same time, we introduce the latest progress of segment routing technology.

Specific Topics include:

  • The pain points of classic bearing network technologies
  • What is segment routing?
  • The next hop of the MPLS segment routing: SRV6

Turning Enterprise Network Transformation Into New Value for Service Providers
Date: 6/27/2018 10.00 a.m New York / 3.00 p.m London
More information and registration

Digital transformation is having a profound effect on how organizations are re-evaluating their future networking needs. This not only impacts how they will deliver their own internal IT requirements, but also the approaches they need to take with any consumer facing services, especially given inevitable emergence of IoT technologies.

Enterprise CIOs are demanding a new security framework, one that provides a consistent approach to application and access security for both employees, consumers and Things. Citrix will demonstrate how its networking services can be quickly harnessed by service providers to create a powerful set of joint secure networking services that can break down the barriers to enterprise digital transformation and extend their relevance with customers in the future.

In this webinar, we will discuss:
- How digital transformation is impacting the future needs for networking – what this means to current capabilities and solutions, the challenges and opportunities from a service provider perspective

- How the shift of enterprise workloads to cloud and SaaS has a profound impact on networking architectures, economics and security – what attributes should next- generation networking services possess?

- How the fabric of the next-generation enterprise workspace cannot be distinct from the underlying network – what new collaboration opportunities emerge to extend service provider value beyond traditional services?

Redefining IT's role to Become the Innovative Engine of the Company
Date: 7/10/2018 12 pm New York / 5 pm London
More information and registration

In today's digital economy, many IT departments are treading a delicate path between trying to provide the business with the new technologies and services needed to quickly compete in this digital world and keeping existing technologies and services running ("keeping the lights on").

In order to free up more time, budget and resources to respond quickly to the needs of business and be seen as a value center, adopting new technologies to enable this transition is a must. Cloud computing is an important element in this transition and specifically the adoption of a cloud platform (PaaS) which provides IT departments with the agility and ability to meet these challenges.

Join us for this webinar in which you will learn:

  • Why IT must redefine its role in the digital enterprise or risk becoming obsolete
  • How cloud computing, and more specifically cloud platforms, can enable IT to react quickly to business requirements, making IT a value center and not a cost center
  • How IT plays a pivotal role in accelerating a company's journey to digital transformation
  • Why the SAP Cloud Platform provides an enterprise cloud platform needed by IT to become the innovative engine of the company

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
