The Open Networking Summit (ONS) North America is here, and we hope you’ll join us next week, March 26-29 at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown as we discuss software defined networking (SDN), secure devops, container networking, 5G infrastructure, and more. ONS brings together enterprises, service providers and cloud providers to discuss the future of open source networking, covering topics like SDN, network functions virtualization (NFV), orchestration and cloud automation, and the internet of things (IoT).
The communications service provider (CSP) industry continues to show signs of disruption and transformation. Many CSPs are abandoning the closed, proprietary infrastructures of the past for more agile and open ones in order to offer services more quickly and support tech-savvy customers with a host of new and evolving expectations. These CSPs are making plans for 5G, continuing deployment of network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN), and are moving forward with new services to use edge computing.
Automation has become an essential component of strategic modernization and digital transformation, particularly for today’s forward-looking communications service providers (CSPs). Join us Tuesday, March 20 as we explore router compliance and security governance in the first part of our telecom network automation webinar series.
It was quite the hectic but extremely successful week here at Mobile World Congress 2018 – the world’s largest mobile industry gathering with more than 100,000 attendees, which added to the hubbub of cultural, sporting, entertainment, industry and gastronomical diversity that is Barcelona.
The financial services industry’s need for flexible and extensible hybrid cloud continues to be a priority to help them better manage their expanding footprint of next-gen enterprise applications as part of their digital transformations. Meanwhile, customer expectations and new regulations around customer convenience and privacy are testing the limits of legacy banking technology platforms. Join us March 7 for a webinar exploring how microservices, containerization, and APIs bring opportunity for increased agility in the financial services environment.
This year’s Mobile World Congress began with a challenge and opportunity for operators to push the boundaries of today’s mobile ecosystem and help drive the future of the digital economy through innovation. A focus on 5G permeated the event every day, from keynotes and presentations, to demos and announcements, all the way down to the exhibit floor. The internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence, connected cars, new devices, and blockchain were also highlighted throughout the week. Keep reading for some of the highlights we captured from this year’s Mobile World Congress.
As I gear up to attend the 2018 Rice Oil & Gas HPC Conference in Houston, I take pause and think about the journey that the science of High Performance Computing (HPC) has been through and more importantly, am curious about where it is headed. When I had spoken about sustaining an ecosystem of Open Innovation at this conference last year, I had the privilege of meeting Earl Dodd, an industry expert on HPC. I happened to have an opportunity to meet Earl recently and engaged in an insightful conversation about HPC. Let us just say our conversation sprouted the idea of doing a multi-part podcast starting with the basics and looking ahead to the future. We hope you’ll join us as we head “Back to the Future” of HPC through podcasts that define what HPC is and explore where HPC is headed.
Podcast 1: Basics of High Performance Computing
Podcast 2: Where is HPC headed?
Updated 26 June 2018: Podcast 3: Making HPC Real A podcast with Dave Pearah, the CEO of the HDF Group on the essential components vital to making HPC real with standards and libraries that serve as catalysts across the ecosystem.
Third-party cloud services promise to deliver utility-based computing – and its an opportunity many capital market firms are interested in pursuing. But cloud services have to be elastic, responsive, secure, resilient and cost-effective if financial firms are going to trust them to support business-critical workloads. Transitioning to the cloud requires a thoughtful approach that takes into account to migration, orchestration and operational efficiency. To help financial firms through these transitions, the Wall Street Technology Association (WSTA) is hosting a February 28th panel discussion in New York City.
We’re at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona this week, and are excited to host multiple demos in our booth.
