Part 3 - Software-Defined Networking SDN

Part 3 - Break the Restraints: Uncovering Software-Defined Networking

The software-defined networking movement is here. So what will our world look like when we are SDN enabled? The Network of the Future will soon be virtualized as changing cloud architectures and growing business needs require a flexible network environment. But how will industry gain a competitive advantage with SDN? How will the impact of SDN on the network change the way we do business? Watch now >>

Part 4 - Cloud Computing

Part 4 - The Cloud: Building in Mid-Air

Converged infrastructures and shared services are at the foundation of cloud computing. Big data, virtual networks and software defined networking will take over water cooler conversations in the tech sector for years to come. Can the network be the bedrock of the Cloud or will market demand and OTT provider services be too formidable for the telco community? Watch now >>

Part 5 - Value Chain

Part 5 - The Value Chain: Building Value in the Chain

No matter where you are in the supply chain of the ICT industry, collaboration between your suppliers and customers increasingly dictates the success of your new products and services. The value chain is changing with each cycle, from chip maker to end user and everybody in between. So how does increased collaboration help strengthen your company's position in the marketplace? What is driving a more communicative value chain towards multi-vendor systems and increased demand for heterogeneous technologies and applications? Watch now >>

Part 6 - The Virtualization Revolution: NFV Unleashed

Part 6 - The Virtualization Revolution: NFV Unleashed

The explosive growth of internet traffic has disrupted the technology industry, threatening to clog telecom networks… unless a new, scalable approach is implemented. This documentary explores the evolution of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and the hurdles faced when switching from infrastructure-heavy, legacy networks to virtualized networks. Industry leaders and experts also uncover the benefits and use cases behind the transition from hardware-based networks to software-driven ones, making NFV a reality for network operators.
