Overcoming 5G standalone delays to deliver new revenue
Date: 12/7/2022 11:00 a.m. New York
Spirent Communications
More information and registration

As new standalone cores roll out, 5G is fully embracing the cloud. Early movers have many lessons learned, but one critical takeaway is that the cloud breaks 5G testing as we know it. Traditional manual validation testing simply can't keep up with the constant stream of releases of cloud-native functions and compute and connectivity infrastructure across an expanded set of 5G vendors. Join our team of experts, Heavy Reading Principal Analyst, Ruth Brown, Spirent Head of Strategy, Steve Douglas, and Spirent VP of Global Business Solutions, Chris O'Loughlin, as they explain why 5G is disrupting traditional testing and share how 5G leaders are adopting automation and "as a service" models to reinvent testing for the 5G cloud.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Service providers' transformation to the cloud: status, challenges, and headwinds
  • What a cloud-native 5G core release calendar looks like and the move to CI/CD
  • The need for automation across the lab-to-live lifecycle
  • The role of "as a service" models and case studies

More information and registration

Operators success in 5G will be built on new innovative services in revenue generation and future proofing network investments. As 5G spectrum evolution continues, 5G success will lie in the ability to leverage all spectrum bands with a single 5G solution. The ability for operators to adopt an “all-in-one” integrated solution that combines network technologies to deliver optimal performance, ultimate experiences and minimal energy consumption. Moving forward, all connections and services will evolve to 5G and so will all bands, including TDD, FDD and mmWave. Delivering a new standard for mobile broadband (MBB) network construction is an inevitable step for all mobile operators.

How to sell cyber security to your subscribers
Date: 12/13/2022 11:00 am New York/ 4:00pm London
More information and registration

Technology advancement has been a double edge sword for those impacted. The quality of life has improved drastically while new challenges and complications have also surfaced on the opposite end of the spectrum. The typical household today is surrounded with numerous digital devices and some of them continue to stay with us even when we leave. People are aware of the cybersecurity challenges they’re facing and are looking for solutions to protect their digital lives, but they lack the knowledge and motivation to manage their own cybersecurity. Service providers can capitalize on this opportunity and increase revenues by providing simple, ready-to-use cybersecurity solutions that require minimal user input. In this webinar, we focus on how ISPs can better address their subscribers needs, and also make a profit, by packing cybersecurity into a much needed and accessible service. Cybersecurity is not an area where service providers should be pulling back on spending. An evolving cybersecurity portfolio is a long-term investment and the key to keep your subscribers protected, engaged and happy.

Key topics include:

  • Overview of today’s cyberthreats
  • How cybersecurity addresses latest threats
  • Cybersecurity as the top value-added service
  • Driving awareness with education and repetition
  • Leverage current events related to cybersecurity

Simplify your Multicloud Networking to Improve Business Agility and Reduce TCO
Date: 12/13/2022 1:00 p.m. New York
More information and registration

The convergence of cloud and communications is at a tipping point, accelerating the demand for new enterprise services. The dependence of these services on single hyperscale clouds can be a nightmare for availability and disaster recovery. Enterprises need to seek multi-cloud and hybrid cloud services to avoid getting handcuffed into a single cloud vendor and be able to take full advantage of a true modern network. Achieving that goal requires a multi-cloud networking solution with a routing fabric that enables cloud-to-cloud connectivity, connecting to multiple pools of capacity.

Key Topics will Include:

  • Speeding time to market – new applications can be deployed quickly across multiple national/international markets using inter-market connectivity
  • Business agility – flexible platforms allow for interoperability to IT service providers and site-to-site connectivity solutions
  • Expand market reach – leverage inter-market connectivity to reach more enterprises and interconnection among an ecosystem of providers
  • Reduce total cost of operation – direct cloud connectivity cuts data egress fees, and adding virtual router capabilities, removes investment in routing equipment
  • Increased security – direct connections create private network isolation for enterprises which is more secure than connecting through the public internet
  • Improved customer experience – low-latency performance assures consistent experience from the core to the edge
  • Business simplification - enabling customers to blend pools of capacity and provision across them. Simplify onboarding and reach customers through a single network interface
  • Rapid scaling - allow enterprises to create applications that can be programmed on top of a uniform API/SDK-like interface
  • Resource optimization - use of orchestration capability to launch or spawn virtual routers in different clouds
