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.

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.
