    Intelligent Networks Theatre

    Wed 3rd Oct 13:00 to 13:30

    The Intersection of LTE & SD-WAN; LTE’s Role as a Primary WAN Link

    Software-Defined WANs are no longer just for large buildings with loads of traffic headed to the data centre. The expansion of enterprise-grade LTE networks, the upcoming availability of Gigabit LTE, and some carriers' support for unmetered data plans are making wireless viable as a primary WAN link and ideal for accessing Internet and SaaS content directly from the branch. Also, the flexibility provided by wireless is critical for today's enterprises that are pushing the boundaries of the branch out of the bricks and mortar locations to bring products and services directly to the customers they service. 

    In this session, Cradlepoint’s VP of Product and Solution Marketing, Donna Johnson, will explore how the combination of wireless connectivity and SD-WAN is ideal for bringing reliability and security to today's increasingly mobile workforce and ever-expanding network’s edge — and for providing connectivity to applications and data in the Cloud.

    Wed 3rd Oct 14:20 to 14:50

    Is your Network ready for IoT?

    IoT devices can vary significantly in behaviour and requirements. This has to be taken into consideration by modern (mobile) networks. 4G/LTE introduced features related to IoT: reduced bandwidth, extended timer to reduce battery usage and increase lifetime, optimization for signalling and user plane. 5G will follow this way and add new features like network slicing, whereas IoT devices with the same requirements can use their own virtual network. However, even the simplest IoT device can challenge the network, when deployed at scale. What happens if thousands of devices want to communicate at the same time? Will the signalling storm impact the network? Is the network able to recover? Is the dedicated 5G slice able to provide and guarantee required IoT parameters during mass deployment? This session will demonstrate how to validate mobile networks and ensure that they are ready from day one and that there are no unsolicited surprises during IoT mass deployment.

    How can an ADC function in a multi cloud world?

    Many enterprise businesses have begun either sourcing applications as a SaaS or migrating applications to the cloud. While on-premises applications have historically benefitted from application delivery controllers (ADCs) such as Citrix ADC to provide increased resilience, performance, and security, once applications move to the cloud, their role becomes more uncertain. How can we address these are new challenges in a hybrid cloud architecture?

    Some of the challenges include:
    Adding automation
    Mitigating outages
    Coping with complexity

    Secure SDN for Enterprises

    Many Enterprises IT departments want to deploy Hybrid-cloud and Multi-cloud environments to become more agile and achieve increasingly demanding business outcomes.
        
    By distributing workloads across public and private/on-prem clouds and extending network connectivity to existent Data Centers, companies can benefit from the best features of cloud as well as coping with existent vast amount of applications on legacy Data Centers.
        
    However, a key problem in this type of new ecosystem is complying with required network security policies. In this presentation, we show how enterprises network security requirements can be addressed in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. We also consider deployment strategies for SDN security in brownfield scenarios.

  • Intent-Based Application Services: Intelligence and Elasticity Across Any Cloud. James Sherlow  |   Avi Networks   |   Cloud, Networks and Mobility

    Thu 4th Oct 13:40 to 14:10

    Intent-Based Application Services: Intelligence and Elasticity Across Any Cloud.

    Enterprises are adopting multi-cloud strategies as springboards to increased business agility and competitive differentiation. Elastic, highly-automated application networking services such as load balancing, application monitoring, application acceleration, auto-scaling, micro‑segmentation, and application security, are essential components to deliver this agility.

    For years, enterprises have relied on appliance-based (hardware or virtual) load balancers. Unfortunately, these legacy ADCs are very inflexible at scale and slow to respond to changes or security incidents. These problems are amplified as applications migrate to the cloud.

    In contrast, the Avi Vantage Platform not only elastically scales up and down based on real-time traffic patterns, but also offers ludicrous scale at a fraction of the cost. Learn how Avi can scale up and down quickly across any cloud.

    Data Centre Networking at 100Gb/s and Higher

    The entire bandwidth of the Internet of the late 1990s can now be handled by a single data centre switch! This is a time of unprecedented change in networking. 100G Ethernet has been deployed in larger data centres for a number of years and thoughts are now turning to 400G and beyond. The proliferation of virtual servers and east-west traffic within data centres is driving new control-plane technologies such as VXLAN, eBGP and EVPN. This session will examine the networking technologies and testing of the modern data centre, looking at how lessons learned from 100G deployments can inform future strategies.

    Digital Transformation – “Yes that is impressive, but couldn’t you just use a pencil…?”

    The rewards offered by digital transformation are huge, but so are the potential pitfalls. During this session Adam will outline some techniques for building an adaptable infrastructure framework; drawing on his own experience, and insights gleaned from the journeys of companies such as Google and Amazon. He will discuss the importance of asking “why” before “how”, and how to solve problems today without creating new ones in the future.

    If you’re struggling to navigate a sea of cloud-first, software-defined everything, containers, XaaS etc. then Adam’s ability to simplify the complex make this one a must.
