Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) will become the processor of choice for real-time communications (RTC) in the cloud.

GPUs have already become the de-facto choice in the cloud to solve large compute-intensive tasks such as image processing, AI and machine learning. Media transcoding is one of the most compute-intensive operations for real-time communications, so as RTC migrates to the cloud, a match between compute need and a compute solution aligns perfectly.

Sonus understands how to successfully take advantage of GPUs to ensure real-time communication performance; it’s in their DNA. Listen to the experts explain how using GPUs achieves orders of magnitude performance improvement vs. CPU implementations and is now equivalent or better than most DSP-based solutions.

This webinar will provide the latest information on:

  • The state of the market for GPUs
  • GPU performance relative to DSPs and CPUs
  • GPU cost relative to DSPs and CPUs
  • An assessment of how GPUs perform for quality of service
  • A proposal for how to better support GPUs with OpenStack

Webinar participants will understand why Sonus is bullish on GPUs and why they are the future of media processing for real-time communications in the cloud.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
