Enterprise - Don’t teeter on the “virtual” edge!
Date / Time: Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 11:00 a.m. New York/ 4:00 p.m. LondonOverview:
There's a challenge where the edge of the enterprise meets the edge of the network. Principally, this challenge is associated with legacy capillary networks that link M2M silos to new IT systems. The existence of diverse communication protocols together with multiple short-range radio systems (ZigBee, Wireless LAN, Z-Wave) means that the gateway is becoming a communications linchpin in industrial IoT architectures. This is because on the other side of the gateway are the wide-area networks that link plants and operating facilities to corporate data centers and the extended supply chain. The challenge of managing this complex interface poses a huge problem for enterprises and services providers, particularly if the enterprise operations are global.
Mobile operators are seeing competition from realistic, alternative low-power wide-area (LPWA) wireless networks, designed for IoT and M2M use cases. Consequently, operators are rapidly trying to get back in the game to compete against LPWA players, which is why LTE-based narrow band IoT is now being developed and deployed.
In addition, we are starting to see a lot of activity around virtual CPEs and gateways in combination with SD-WAN. Service providers are looking at how to utilize network virtualization in the networks to simplify provisioning, improve device control, lower cost, improve security and enable real-time traffic management.
In this virtual edge world, there are multiple different scenarios that could play out. This webinar will help CSPs and mobile operators understand the vendor perspective, and the industry use case requirements causing this teetering on the virtual edge.
