ECHING, Germany -- Kontron today announced its sponsorship of the Big Telecom Event, hosted by Light Reading, in Chicago, June 17 and 18. Addressing elasticity, scale, and service acceleration, Kontron and ISV partner, Vantrix, will demonstrate high performance video transcoding and data analytics solutions that are ready for Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) deployed by mobile, cable and cloud operators.

Video Transcoding Use Case - Any Source to Any Device on Any Network
Kontron and Vantrix will showcase the only available video transcoding solution that uses OpenStack to orchestrate virtual HD graphic instances via the Intel® Core™ i7 processor series. Carriers can deloy this as an NFV infrastructure solution for video processing as a network function, namely Transcoding-as-a-Service within software defined infrastructure. The framework of the demonstration will consist of simultaneous 4K UHD H.264 transcoding and 4K HEVC encoding to multiple resolution screens from the same Kontron Symkloud 2U platform.

Big Data Use Case – Optimize to Monetize
The second demonstration illustrates a comprehensive data analytics use case that is based on service provider video streaming logs. A similar OpenStack orchestration layer is utilized to provision instances of compute resources, while other tools, such as Splunk/Hunk and Hadoop, enable a wide array of data processing and analysis of video user experiences and bandwidth utilization. This Analytics-as-a-Service solution is NFV-ready for software defined networks.

Kontron and Vantrix solution architects will be on hand to provide personal demonstrations in the Demo Hall, Innovation Zone. Please click here to make an appointment.

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.
