NFV and SDN can significantly reduce SBC provisioning procedures by automating certain time-consuming tasks, lowering operating costs significantly by dramatically reducing the complexities of setting up and maintaining hardware based SBCs. Service Providers have the ability to spin-up additional SBCs with little or no setup, reduce the configuration burden, and reduce the probability for configuration errors. A provisioning process that used to take many hours or days can now be completed in a matter of minutes.

This webinar will provide an overview how an SDN controlled service model can significantly reduce network operations by automating time-consuming tasks. In addition to reducing Operational Expenses, real-time interaction between virtualized SBCs and SDN Network Controllers, will empowers service providers to deliver a range of innovative new services, including:

  • Launch same-day Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking services in new markets and geographies
  • Scale-up SIP capacity anywhere in your network
  • Deliver high-end SIP services at a lower price point to small and medium businesses

SDN and NFV both promise hardware vendor independence, improved operational efficiency, standardized and open interfaces and the dynamic chaining of network functions to create new services. While potentially bringing disruptive benefits to the networking industry, they also come with their own sets of challenges. Key among these challenges is service orchestration & management in particular when legacy network architectures are to be part of a hybrid service delivery solution.

Siloed, legacy operation support systems (OSSs) are structurally not fit to address this challenging roadblock in the way of ubiquitous adoption of NFV based services.

We believe a new generation of management system is required which should feature the ability to enable rapid new service design and roll out over multivendor hybrid networking infrastructure. Key to this capability is the engineering of a powerful abstraction layer decorrelating the multivendor world of devices (physical and virtual, South) from the world of service design and management (North).

Sponsors:
Cloudmark
More information and registration

Application-to-person (A2P) SMS has increasingly become a key method for organizations to communicate with their customers. This has been driven by the ubiquity of mobile phones and the universality of SMS. Unfortunately, this has also lead to a massive growth in messages being sent through illegitimate routes that bypass the operators’ billing systems. This is commonly referred to as grey routes carrying grey traffic, and is a tactic commonly used by third-party aggregators to boost their own profitability. The result is lost revenue for mobile operators who often do not have visibility and control of messages on their network.

This webinar with industry experts from Heavy Reading and Cloudmark will take an in-depth look at the need to tackle this problem by:

  • Capturing operators’ lost revenue by identifying and re-routing rogue traffic.
  • Eliminating the use of grey routes by providing legitimate channels for inbound traffic that enables operators to bill for it.
  • Enhancing control and policy strategies to catch mobile attacks that may be entering networks via illegitimate means.

Sponsors:
Cisco
More information and registration

Network operators have well-documented issues delivering services efficiently because of rising operational costs and inefficient utilization levels in their networks. As such, the desire to simplify and speed service creation and management through SDN and other approaches to automation, virtualization and orchestration has captured their attention.

An SDN solution that includes predictive analytics based on continuous collection and correlation of traffic and topology state from live customer networks is ideally suited to this problem set. In the interest of rapid development, applications should be able to take advantage of web technologies such as Representational State Transfer (ReST) that get visibility into the provider network without requiring a deep understanding of protocols or network structure. Technologies such as NETCONF/YANG and PCEP are ideal for control of the multivendor network.

This LR webinar will cover common service provider use cases for more quickly and consistently optimizing and monetizing infrastucture. We will detail the underlying technologies required for this undertaking and highlight specific functionalities geared towards value added services and business optimization. Finally, we will discuss use real operator workflows to make the business case for network control in today's service provider network.

Applications such as mobile data services and enterprise cloud services, and the increasing speeds of the access networks over which they are delivered, are driving up the demand for both quality and quantity of bandwidth at the network edge. At the same time carriers are looking to consolidate the separate networks that have typically served their various access infrastructures, imposing further capacity and density requirements on installed equipment. Meanwhile, architectural changes inspired by NFV and SDN mean that more carriers are considering deploying mini datacenters in the metro and closer to access networks for the delivery of virtualized applications -- a move which will force the deployment of more transport capacity to guarantee service delivery. These trends are all fueling the need for 10 gigabit-per-second Carrier Ethernet services. 10-GigE is rapidly displacing GigE and legacy TDM as the edge transport network of choice, delivering both aggregation and support for service level agreements closer to the customer. Carriers want rapid service delivery and ease of operations, putting pressure on the next generation of Metro Ethernet gear to deliver more than higher capacity.
