AUSTIN, Texas – Aug. 23, 2016 – Packet Design CTO Cengiz Alaettinoglu will join Heavy Reading Senior Analyst Sandra O’Boyle for a webcast on software-defined network (SDN) management and orchestration (MANO) for service providers. Hosted by Light Reading on Tuesday, Aug. 30, the speakers will explore the critical elements for SDN MANO in multi-service networks. They will discuss new protocols and open source developments that enable end-to-end service overlays in the wide area network.
Webinar Title: “Managing & Orchestrating Multi-Service SDNs”
Topic: Today’s service provider networks have to carry disparate services and applications with diverse latency demands. For example, enterprise customers with time-sensitive financial trading applications need short-delay paths that may need to be segregated for security purposes. Service providers who do not meet the video quality requirements of their Netflix and YouTube residential customers may experience dissatisfaction and churn.
SDN applied to the WAN can help service providers address these issues but presents its own management challenges. To accommodate different service types, as well as variable traffic demands and failure conditions, operators must be able to provision SDN resources dynamically. This enables them to minimize over-provisioning of network resources and better control capex outlays.
Date and Time: Tuesday, Aug. 30 at 11:00 a.m. EDT / 4 p.m. BST
