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.

5G Converged SDN Transport – the Key to New 5G Services

Transitioning your existing network to 5G is a challenging task. How you arrive at your goal requires a process map built on best practices and use of the right technologies. The alternative is falling back to a status quo network that can translate investments into 5G success.

In this webinar, we focus on leveraging new technologies proven to reduce costs, accelerate time to market and simplify complexities.

Key topics include:

  • Building the map to achieving your goals
  • Best practices for each network segment
  • Reimaging the existing network
  • Monetizing your investment

Global Influences on IoT Agile Billing Development
Date: 10/10/2019 10:00 a.m New York / 3:00 p.m London
MDS Global
More information and registration

The strategic approach taken by CSPS around the world to launch IoT services is proving important when shaping the development of propositions, specifically with regard to the billing of IoT services. Many CSPs are still in the early stages of progressing billing and exploring new IoT monetization models, but there is also awareness of emerging billing models which are more frequently being used by small and medium-sized IoT vendors. As the diversity of IoT applications increases and the number of partners in ecosystems grows, the CSPs will need to adopt new business support systems [BSS] to move beyond being just a connectivity provider, and into the functional role of lead enabler.

Key topics include:

  • Exploring the current status on CSP IoT Monetisation strategies – survey-based analysis
  • Critical elements in building an IoT Monetisation practise
  • The hurdles in CSPs executing and generating revenues from IoT
  • The case for agile billing and the move to lead enabler

From Static to Programmable. Leveraging the next wave of virtualization to deliver secure end-to-end applications.
Date: 10/15/2019 1 p.m. New York/ 5:00 p.m. London
More information and registration

Service Provider (SP) cloud architectures and strategies are continuing to evolve. One of the most visible attributes of this transition is the shift to application-aware, programmable on-demand networks, that support real-time traffic routing and hybrid connectivity.

In this new model, application and security network functions, such as firewalls, application acceleration, and remote access, are being virtualized so customers can order these on-demand functions via self-service portals. In an implementation context, since the enterprise network is virtualized at the edge, control will depend on deep visibility into end-to-end application usage and behavior from the data center to the customer premises.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What to consider when designing programmable networks to support and secure your applications
  • The pros and cons of new virtualized network functions that can be delivered to customer premises
  • How to take advantage of programmable networks with end-to-end visibility, improved QoE and real-time reporting
