Designing Storage Networks for Next-Generation Application Requirements
Brief

Designing Storage Networks for Next-Generation Application Requirements

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)


In this session you will get expert guidance as you design your storage networks for SSD and next-generation virtualized applications. We will address challenges with performance, scale, programmability, and analytics. You should come away with a solid investment protection plan for your storage networks, including how to:

  • Transition to 32G Fibre Channel
  • Increase SAN reliability and performance through best practices
  • Modernize architecture and operations
  • Support agile software development through the programmability and automation of storage networks
  • Design for the next decade and minimize chances of obsolescence from frequent technology advances

Very Fast and Flexible Cloud/NFV Solution Stacks
Brief

Very Fast and Flexible Cloud/NFV Solution Stacks

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)

NFV and virtualized high-performance applications such as video processing require a carrier-grade solution stack that provides for very high and predictable performance, scalability, and open extensibility. It is the lack of efficient vswitch solutions that makes many service providers still use SR-IOV, leading to many operational constraints and a slowed down adoption of NFV. The Vector Packet Processor (VPP) developed by the FD.io project is a very fast software data plane that offers the expected level of performance and extensibility.

This session will introduce FD.io/VPP and discuss a set of solution stacks that integrates FD.io/VPP with OpenStack and OpenDaylight. The session will touch on:

  • VPP architecture, performance, feature set, and roadmap.
  • The architecture of networking-vpp, an ml2 driver for OpenStack.
  • OPNFV solution stacks that include FD.io/VPP, which developed, integrated, and tested as part of the OPNFV FastDataStacks project. FastDataStacks composes NFV solution stacks that provide for direct integration of FD.io/VPP and OpenStack, as well as solution stacks that use OpenDaylight as a network controller for Layer 2 and Layer 3 networking.

Transforming Cable Networks with Remote PHY (R-PHY)
Brief

Transforming Cable Networks with Remote PHY (R-PHY)

Thursday, June 6th, 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)

Cable operators are in the midst of transforming their networks to meet the ever-increasing demands of their customers. By converging existing network infrastructure toward a scalable multiservice IP platform, cable operators are realizing capital savings and operating benefits. To further enhance these benefits and drive convergence, Cisco has developed a standards-based remote PHY (R-PHY) solution that extends DOCSIS over digital fiber.

Register and join us at this Cisco Knowledge Network webinar to learn how Cisco's R-PHY solution can simplify your network's operations, automate service provisioning, and provide a foundation for a cloud-based CMTS architecture.

A Global NFV/SDN Study - Service provider SDN/NFV Transformation Guide
Brief

A Global NFV/SDN Study - Service provider SDN/NFV Transformation Guide

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)

Service providers are transforming their business using NFV based services and SDN enabled networks. But the pace of transformation has been slow. To find out why, Cisco recently conducted a study to understand the progress and challenges that SPs are facing as they go through this transformation. Even though most operators interviewed were at an early stage of the journey, we identified some of the key success factors. We also identified some of the major challenges they faced and how they were able to overcome those challenges.

This session will focus on the findings of the study but also provide insight into:

  • The transformation pathways that these operators took
  • The top 10 challenges they faced
  • Recommendations on how to overcame the challenges

Come learn about this study and the exciting new things we learned.
