TIA NOW’s Clarence Reynolds discusses networking at the edge with Ildiko Vancsa, Ecosystem Technical Lead at the Openstack Foundation, Chris Price, President of Ericsson Software Technology and Beth Cohen, Cloud Networking Product Manager at Verizon.

All Telecommunications Industry Association Videos:

  • What can you expect when you allow vendors to leverage your external networking assets? What are the benefits of open specs in a network environment? Cliff Grossner, Senior Research Director & Advisor for the Cloud and Data Center Research Practice at IHS Markit, joins us with answers, and the significant breakthroughs that have happened so far because of open source.

  • What is the future of U.S. trade with China and its effects on the ICT industry? Should American telcos be skeptical about promises of more balanced trade with China? TIA's Director of Global Policy, K.C. Swanson, speaks with Chris Millward, President & Managing Director of USITO, which represents the tech industry in Beijing, about the impact tariffs and other trade policies could have on telcos.

  • The TR-42 engineering committee of TIA develops and maintains voluntary standards for cabling infrastructure in user-owned buildings. That committee recently elected new leadership, including Henry Franc, Technology Solutions Architect at Belden, TR-42’s new vice chair. He joins TIA NOW to discuss what’s next for the TR-42 committee.

  • It’s been 10 years since the advent of software defined networking (SDN). Since then, SDN has emerged as an essential component of the drive towards virtualization. One of the pioneers of SDN is Nick McKeown, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford University. He joins TIA NOW to discuss the origins and the future of SDN.

  • Will 5G be a platform for innovation? If so, what type of innovation can the industry expect? How will 5G open new services in new vertical markets? TIA NOW's Clarence Reynolds speaks with Mats Karlsson, Head of R&D and Portfolio at Ericsson, about creating new business opportunities with 5G technology.

  • The Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) is on a journey to maturity, seeking to fortify its resiliency, scalability and security. What challenges will ONAP encounter? Helen Chen, Principal Architect at Huawei, and Jason Hunt, Executive Software Architect at IBM, speak with TIA NOW about ONAP’s path forward.

  • How is AI changing the way networks are being designed for technologies like IoT, AR/VR, autonomous vehicles and swarm data? What are the characteristics of the AI-enabling network of tomorrow? Miguel Villarreal, CEO of Villa-Tech shares his perspectives on the role of AI in network virtualization.

  • What are the fundamental challenges of edge computing vs. cloud computing? Are there benefits to having real-time apps at the edge? Said Ouissal, CEO and Founder of ZEDEDA, joins TIA NOW to discuss the mutually beneficial coexistence of both edge and cloud.

  • Automating a network is no easy task. There are risks in tinkering with things that work, and perils of the unknown. Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst at 451 Research, tells TIA NOW’s Clarence Reynolds the five critical networking tasks that need to be automated, and the techniques and tools needed to get it done.

  • Today’s cloud is not built to support the demands of tomorrow’s network infrastructure where the edge of the network will be lined with 1 trillion intelligent devices. So what do we need to begin building tomorrow’s network today? Bob Monkman, Director of Networking Software Strategy at Arm, joins TIA NOW to discuss the path forward.

  • What are the key security challenges facing enterprise networks as we move through the cloud/SDN transition phase? Will multiple vendors in a cloud infrastructure create bigger security challenges? Siobhan Moran and Brett Young, Principal Consultants at Leidos Cyber, join TIA NOW to discuss the challenges network developers face in securing the data center.

  • NFVi orchestration has followed a carrier centric path, while web-scale automation remains focused on simplicity. What is the best way forward? Adam Dunstan, VP of SDN and NFV Engineering at CenturyLink, joins TIA NOW with a look at their hybrid solution.

  • New applications, services and workloads increasingly demand a different kind of network architecture. What are key components of that network? TIA NOW’s Clarence Reynolds discusses networking at the edge with Ildiko Vancsa, Ecosystem Technical Lead at the Openstack Foundation, Chris Price, President of Ericsson Software Technology and Beth Cohen, Cloud Networking Product Manager at Verizon.

  • How will network transformation impact advances in AI? Is the industry prepared or unprepared to take on these challenges?
