Turn Data into Business Value: Infinite Video Platform Analytics

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)


With video services increasingly being delivered over fast IP connections from robust, open cloud-based platforms, we have an unprecedented opportunity to enhance these services with intelligence and automation, based on big data aggregation and analysis. Analytics can make significant impact on virtually any aspect of video operations and businesses.

Analytics is one of the core components of Cisco Infinite Video Platform. It enables video service and content providers to leverage a rich data lake, and advanced analytics based on data science and machine learning, to improve their video business. It provides actionable insights on business operations and subscribers, leading to results including:

  • Increased customer loyalty through delivery of outstanding quality of experience, new engagement models, and personalized content and services
  • Improved operations performance and lower costs
  • Increased security through detection of anomalous behavior, protecting both providers and subscribers against potential piracy and fraud behavior
  • Revenue growth by employing business insights and delivering new monetization opportunities

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Key principles and considerations for applying big data analysis to video services and systems
  • Infinite Video Platform Analytics offering overview and capabilities
  • Application use cases illustrating how you can benefit from Infinite Video Platform Analytics

The Cisco VNI team will share the new findings from the updated studies and answer your IP traffic and service trend questions. You will also learn where and how you can access Cisco VNI content for your own business and technical planning and analysis.

Detect, Connect, Engage and Monetize: The Service Provider Role in Monetizing Wi-Fi, Venues and Smart Cities

Detect, Connect, Engage and Monetize: The Service Provider Role in Monetizing Wi-Fi, Venues and Smart Cities

Tuesday, June 27th 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)


There’s a popular saying that goes, “Predicting the future is easy… getting it right is the hard part.” So it comes as no surprise that skepticism abounds surrounding the recent predictions that Wi-Fi will go the way of the dinosaur.It’s always interesting to look back and see how accurate these predictions end up. Despite the advent of ‘unlimited’ mobile data plans, Wi-Fi’s share of mobile phone data traffic in the US continues to rise.

Come hear from Ron Malenfant, Cisco’s Lead Global Architect, as he discusses:

  • Multi-pod and multi-site design overview (for intra- and inter-data center interconnect);
  • Analytics and automation (Tetration, Openstack, Open Source);
  • New hardware (–EX and –FX platforms);
  • New ecosystem partners;
  • Status of VMware support

After the session, you should come away with a good understanding of ACI top-of-mind developments and a foundation for a future deep dive on multi-pod and multi-site design.

Next-Gen Network Telemetry is Within Your Packets: In-Band OAM
Brief

Next-Gen Network Telemetry is Within Your Packets: In-Band OAM

Wednesday, June 28th 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)

While troubleshooting or planning a network, did you ever wish to get full insight into which paths *all* your packets take in your network, understand whether your SLA is really in place, or were you ever asked to prove that your traffic really follows the path you specified by service chaining or traffic engineering? We approach this problem by adding meta-data to *all* packets. In-band OAM adds forwarding path information and other information/stats to every data packet - as opposed to relying on probe packets, which is the traditional method that tools like ping or traceroute use. This session will introduce In-band OAM, explain the technology, discuss implementation and standardization status, and outline the reference implementation in FD.io/VPP and OpenDaylight using example demos.
