Led by: Jeff Wilson, Principal Analyst, Security
Presented by: Infonetics and Nominum
   

One of the largest distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks ever used domain name system (DNS) amplification to flood the Spamhaus Project, a large anti-spam service, with 300 gigabits of traffic. A new back door is making it possible for more than 26 million home gateways with open DNS proxies to use providers' DNS resolvers to create waves of traffic and flood targets anywhere, even when the networks are protected by best-of-breed security measures. This webinar analyzes this new type of DDoS attack in detail and provides information on how service providers can prevent DNS amplification attacks from affecting their networks.

Deploying IMS in the Cloud with NFV


View on-demand

Led by: Diane Myers, Principal Analyst, VoIP, UC, & IMS
Presented by: Infonetics, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson and Metaswitch
   

One of the leading use cases for carrier network virtualization is the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) core. Service providers, particularly mobile operators planning for voice over LTE (VoLTE), are looking toward network functions virtualization (NFV) to scale services up and down quickly and to better align costs with network usage. With the potential of millions of mobile subscribers migrating to an IMS core with VoLTE, are networks capable of handling the load? This webinar provides insights into the benefits and challenges of moving IMS to the cloud, and also discusses important considerations when evaluating the multitude of vendor solutions.

 
Security at the Speed of VoLTE


View on-demand

Led by: Stéphane Téral, Principal Analyst, Mobile Infrastructure & Carrier Economics
Presented by: Infonetics and Stoke
   

The mobile broadband industry's rapid migration to Long Term Evolution (LTE) has opened the door to malicious and non-malicious threats due to fundamental vulnerabilities in the all-IP LTE architecture. With Infonetics forecasting the number of global LTE subscribers to more than quadruple to 755 million between 2013 and 2017, and the number of voice over LTE (VoLTE) subscribers to grow 17-fold in the same 5-year period, security must be a foundational element of any LTE network deployment. As the adoption of IPsec encryption for transporting LTE traffic continues to grow significantly, there is increasing need for security gateways. This webinar discusses how the security gateway prevents unauthorized access into the evolved packet core (EPC) and enhances the quality of experience in LTE networks as subscribers ramp and services begin to emerge.

This webinar looks at the benefits of currently available WLAN gear and explores new WLAN innovations on the horizon and their potential impact on current network designs.

 
Virtualizing Networks with SDN NVOs and Bare Metal Switches


View on-demand

Led by: Cliff Grossner, Directing Analyst, Data Center and Cloud
Presented by: Infonetics, Cumulus and Midokura
   

Cloud service providers and enterprises alike need flexible, cost-effective tools for building and managing virtual networks. Distributed network virtualization overlays (NVOs) and bare metal networking are two new use cases for software-defined networking (SDN) that deliver agility, simplicity, and cost savings for a more seamless shift to the cloud. Distributed and decentralized NVOs, in conjunction with a common operating system for network hardware, allow network managers to centrally manage both virtualized and non-virtualized workloads. By adding automation and agility while leveraging existing hardware and software, this solution makes data center network virtualization faster, easier, and more affordable. This webinar provides Infonetics' view on the state of the SDN and network virtualization market, a deep-dive into distributed NVOs, and use cases highlighting the advantages of a disaggregated paradigm for network underlays with bare metal switches.

Enterprise Shift to the Cloud - Agility to Meet Business Requirements

Tuesday
Jun 3, 2014

ON24 online webcast

Led by: Cliff Grossner, Directing Analyst, Data Center and Cloud
Presented by: Infonetics and KEMP Technologies /2 Sponsor Positions Available
   

Imagine a world in which a Line of Business owner (LOB) could request, via a self-service portal, an application to be deployed at which time billing for DC resource consumption would start. The components required to run the application including application delivery control and security have been pre-defined by an IT administrator via the Cloud Management portal. As demand for the service grows, an IT administrator could request additional resources for the application from a CSP (cloud services provider) DC without service interruption. Delivering on this vision requires a data center architected for the cloud with an application-aware infrastructure.
