Mobile Architecture: Evolution, Challenges and Opportunities by Cyrus Ngaruiya of Dimension Data

Mobile data growth has grown phenomenally in last decade, and more so in the last 5 years, mainly driven by internet growth trends, social media, etc. This has presented challenges to vendors, operators and their commercial data teams, how to scale for this data, while at the same time monetizing from the customer behaviour.

Again, data consumption behavior is changing; how and where the subscribers are consuming data. This has also posed some challenges which are presenting opportunities for architecture evolution.

The presentation will cover the mobile architecture and how it is evolving. I’ll also cover the Mobile Virtual Network Operators architecture, and the business case.
This webinar is scheduled to take place on : Thursday 30 October 2014 at 1400HRS (GMT +3)

SDN: Evolution in the horizon by Mr.Ken Maina of Dimension Data

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is among the hottest networking topics today and this technology promises to transform flexibility and cost profiles of IP networks together with the careers of the people within it.

Networks for a long time have required manual configuration and changes for expression of traffic policies. Most network functionalities as we know and use are implemented in a dedicated appliance that run the control, data and management planes. Key characteristics of this model is vendor lock-in to proprietary hardware, slow innovation of network functionalities, poor scaling and heavy provisioning and management overhead. SDN offers a departure from the old ways to whole new world of possibilities.

SDN offers decoupling of the control from the data plane that will centralize and simplify control of the network, make networks programmable and more agile, and create opportunities for policy-driven supervision and more automation.

Topics of discussion during the show:

· An introduction to SDN and its architecture
· What this technological shift means to engineers and end customers
· Key industry market players and use cases
