Tech-Talk Sessions

Analytics for Mobile Networks

David Meyer

David Meyer

SP CTO and Chief Scientist, Brocade

What if your analytics platform was as mobile as your users? It is. With Brocade and the New IP. David Meyer, Brocade's Chief Scientist and Director of the Advanced Network Technology Center at the University of Oregon, will focus his demo on today's capabilities to provide both visibility and predictability to mobile networks through collection, correlation, and analysis of network data using direct APIs and network taps (optical splitters, SPAN ports). David will spend some time sharing his view of the future, and how machine learning will extend our thinking of data analytics beyond the current “big data” hype cycle.

Software Defined Networking for Mobile Networks

Tom Nadeau

Tom Nadeau

Chief Architect, Open Source, Brocade

What if EVERY enterprise could customize their network? You can. With Brocade and the New IP. SDN could be the single biggest opportunity for operational improvement in mobile networks since the transition from circuit switching to packet switching. This session, lead by Brocade Distinguished Engineer Tom Nadeau, will focus on the role of Software Defined Networking and network programmability in mobile service provider networks through two use-cases:

1. Opening interfaces into the mobile backhaul infrastructure and other dynamic systems, such as SON servers and PCRF, with SDN to automate the provisioning, modification, monitoring, and troubleshooting of mobile backhaul networks

2. Decoupling rules and topologies associated with SGi-LAN service functions and chains from forwarding functions to improve dynamic decision-making with SDN-based service chaining

SDN and NFV for Mobile Networks

Kevin Shatzkamer

Kevin Shatzkamer

CTO for Mobile Networking, Brocade

What if the network and the cloud were the same thing? It is. With Brocade and the New IP. Take a tour of how Brocade sees mobile networks being transformed by NFV and SDN with Kevin Shatzkamer, Brocade CTO for Mobile Networking and Distinguished Engineer, who will showcase how NFV provides an opportunity to eliminate the physical topology boundaries and individual network function scaling limitations, instead focusing on disaggregating the physical appliance boundaries from the logical functional boundaries. This session will focus on how Brocade is thinking about the future of mobile networks, including the role that SDN and NFV will play in defining a future network architecture that is more efficient, more capable, and less constrained than it is today.
