Media Alert: Overture Executives to Speak at Three Upcoming Industry Events

Overture, the preferred Carrier Ethernet edge and aggregation partner for service providers and network operators worldwide, today announced its executives’ participation at the MEF Nordics Carrier Ethernet Seminar, Metro Connect USA 2013 and CITA 2013 Showcase.

Kevin Martin, Overture's senior vice president, sales, EMEA-APAC, will be speaking at 2:35 PM on Feb 20th at the MEF Nordics Carrier Ethernet Seminar in Stockholm, Sweden. Martin will co-host a panel discussion on “Carrier Ethernet Services: Fundamentals” that will address service types, attributes, bandwidth profiles, traffic management, as well as CE 2.0 manageability, exploring MEF management models, service OAM performance monitoring and recent specifications.

Prayson Pate, Overture's chief technologist, will be speaking at 2:30 PM on Feb. 20th at Metro Connect USA in Miami, Florida. Pate will provide input on a panel entitled "Software Defined Networking (SDN): The Future of the Network?" Panelists will address questions such as: Virtualizing and optimizing resources are conceptually brilliant for network evolution but what will

SDN really look like operationally? What are the practical hurdles in its implementation? Does SDN mean the end for switched networks?

Brian Van Voorhis, Overture’s senior product manager, will be speaking at CITA 2013 Showcase on Tuesday, March 5th at 10:00 AM. Van Voorhis will provide insight on the subject: “Extending Ethernet Service Footprints with Copper Bonding.”

Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by FTC, CUI/DFARS, EU-GDPR and the underlying National Cybersecurity Framework suggest the need for a ground-up re-thinking of security strategies and compliance actions. This session offers actionable advice based on case studies to demonstrate the impact of security and privacy attributes for the cloud-backed IoT and AI ecosystem.
Transformation Abstract Encryption and privacy in the cloud is a daunting yet essential task for both security practitioners and application developers, especially as applications continue moving to the cloud at an exponential rate. What are some best practices and processes for enterprises to follow that balance both security and ease of use requirements? What technologies are available to empower enterprises with code, data and key protection from cloud providers, system administrators, insiders, government compulsion, and network hackers? Join Ambuj Kumar (CEO, Fortanix) to discuss best practices and technologies for enterprises to securely transition to a multi-cloud hybrid world.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
