Jim Hodges, Senior Analyst, Core Network Evolution & Analytics, Heavy Reading

Dan Teichman, Senior Manager, Product Marketing, Sonus

Having laid the foundation for what cloud reality looks like for Real-time Communication (RTC) services in our earlier webinar, Real-Time Communications in the Cloud – Avoid Cloud Myths With Proven Solutions, this webinar will dig into some of the more technical requirements – those often promised, seldom seen "unicorns" for RTC to be delivered in the cloud.

While RTC vendors often state their products are "free from hardware constraints," it does not always mean their products are "cloud-optimized." True cloud optimization involves new architectural approaches such as microservices and leveraging emerging technologies like Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) for media services.

This second part of our webinar series will give you a deeper understanding of the RTC requirements in the cloud and how a "cloud-optimized" SBC will meet the scale, performance and flexibility required to deploy RTC in the cloud. This webinar will give you more insight by specifically covering:

  • Essential SBC capabilities in the cloud
  • SBCs' adoption of a microservices architecture to increase scale, performance and flexibility
  • Leveraging optimized GPUs for media transcoding
  • Complete solutions by service chaining policy control and session management

Register to hear insights from Light Reading and Sonus, which has a cloud-optimized portfolio that is a key enabler for RTC in the cloud.

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.
