Security Architecture for Mobile Operators
Brief

Security Architecture for Mobile Operators

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


Speakers:
Andrew Turner, Senior Technical Marketing Manager

Service providers occupy an increasingly important role in modern digital society and represent a growing target for hackers motivated by political agenda or financial reward. The barriers to cybercrime are low, and the rewards can be substantial. This risk is amplified by the evolving nature of the mobility network. With the transition to 5G, virtualization, and cloud technology, the potential number of attacks and threats on mobile networks is growing.

Security architectures need to evolve to take account of this evolving network and threat surface. Enforcement of security policy needs to be led by visibility across the network to enable networks to identify and stop threats before they disrupt and negatively affect their networks and customers. To protect against IP-based threats, mobile operators need to adopt a holistic approach to achieve robust security that helps protect data flows and workloads across mobile infrastructures.

Cisco combines a best-in-class security portfolio with an architectural approach for mobile operators that protects their mobile packet core and IP network from cyberattacks. Our approach helps secure enterprise users and mobile subscriber data and enables new services.

Primary takeaways:

  • Mobile network evolution opens new opportunities while simultaneously increasing the already substantial risk of targeted cyberattacks because of the growing attack surface.
  • A new holistic architectural approach to security is required to protect against IP-based threats, one that helps protect data flows and workloads across mobile infrastructures.
  • Our comprehensive architectural approach helps secure enterprise users and mobile subscriber data and enables new services.

Is Your Network Ready for 10 Billion Connections?
Brief

Is Your Network Ready for 10 Billion Connections?

Thursday, April 13th, 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)

Speakers:
Bostjan Sustar IT Architect, Networking, NIL
Carl Moberg, Technology Director, Cloud and Virtualization Group, Cisco

Host:
John Malzahn Senior Manager, Cloud and Virtualization Solutions Marketing, Cisco

With more than 10 billion devices and connections projected by 2020, according to Cisco’s Mobile Visual Networking Index Forecast (2016–2021), service providers will need the scalability and performance to manage the high growth of devices in their networks.

Cisco recently announced the Layered Services Architecture (LSA), an innovation to the Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) enabled by Tail-f that paves the way for service providers to support the next order of magnitude of devices in their networks. Customers adopting NSO’s technology will benefit from the future horizontal scalability and performance enhancements to the industry’s most advanced and flexible service orchestration platform. NSO provides end-to-end lifecycle service automation to design and deliver high-quality services more quickly and more easily.

As service providers look toward the demands of cloud-scale networking, their legacy management tools and process are stretched to a breaking point of scalability and complexity. Cisco NSO with LSA raises network scalability to a new level and enables management of more than a million multivendor network devices.

Join this Cisco Knowledge Network webinar in which our orchestration experts, along with ATP partner NIL, will explain Cisco’s NSO solution and how the LSA innovation enables near-infinite scalability. We will also share real-life case study examples of the business benefits that can be yielded through network orchestration and automation.

EVPN: A Unifying Overlay Control Plane
Brief

EVPN: A Unifying Overlay Control Plane

Thursday, April 20th , 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)

In the era of cloud-scale networking, network simplicity, agility, and scale are essential. Service providers are expanding their data center footprint to offer virtualized network services. By integrating data center functionality throughout their network infrastructures, service providers need a solution to overcome the existing limitations of VPLS. Enter EVPN, a next-generation solution that separates the data plane from the control plane and uses MP-BGP to optimize and scale network services.

Register and join us at this Cisco Knowledge Network event to learn about the benefits and functionality of EVPN with Cisco IOS XR Software.
