Finally, it’s that time of the year again! Spring is upon us and in Stockholm you can actually feel the breeze of summer. But before we can start wearing those long-lost shorts, the Cisco Service Provider Day is entering the stage in Stockholm on the 5th of June.
Join me and my colleagues for a day of trends and insights. The age of digitization, 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) is upon us. With this new era of connectivity comes the need for network transformation. Discover our industry-leading suite of end-to-end solutions and realize the full potential of what the future holds and how Service Providers can lead the way.
The topics will cover several of the key areas where Service Provides are putting their focus for the evolution that is upon us. I personally really look forward to hearing from guest speaker Kristian Larsson talk about automation and how it is a critical success factor for Service Providers, as well as my own area of expertise the data center and how this is becoming more distributed because of drivers like 5G, virtualization and capacity demands. You can find out more about each session below:
Service Provider Transformation: The world is transforming and nearly everything is going digital. Networks are transforming and Service Providers can lead the way. This session will look at the challenges and opportunities for you to succeed.
Guest Speaker: Kristian Larson is a Senior Expert IP Routing and System Management at Deutsche Telekom, a true automation Ninja. In this session Kristian will provide insights to his experience of how automation is a “need to have” and core challenge to solve for all Service Providers.
IP and Optical Trends: Powerful innovations in Coherent Digital Signal Processing are enabling stronger business cases behind, and new architectures for, physically integrated IP/optical solutions, at various layers within provider networks. This interactive session will consider the current and potential benefits and challenges of such options, in the context of variables in for example the size, fiber access and level of service convergence across different networks.
Security: Service Providers face significant challenges with network complexity, new technology introduction and managing integration into legacy infrastructure. This session will discuss the current and emerging threat landscape, threat actors and their actions towards SP’s. We will discuss the challenges that 5G introduces from a security perspective and how the concept of security by design, threat intelligence and a trust centric approach can give you the advantage that you need to gain control.
Telco DC Architecture for 5G and MEC: This session will define the key Architecture tenets that the Telco Cloud Infrastructure should follow in order to help Service Providers in their journey towards 5G and Edge Computing. We will also describe how this has been applied in a concrete customer use case.
5G Mass Scale Networking: Get your Access, Edge and Core networks ready for mass scale networking and benefit from simplification at scale, multi-dimensional programmability, built-in trust and flexible consumption enabling you to build a network that fits your business needs.Managed Ent NW incl SD WAN: This session will be looking at Cisco’s Software Defined Networks Strategy for B2B managed services, SD-WAN, SD-Access and SD-DC which provides the opportunities to deliver end to end orchestrated service and combine with additional SP value add services.
Meet the Experts
After the day of sessions and breakouts there will also be the chance to schedule a “Meet the Experts”. Here you get the possibility to learn from and consult with key Cisco executives and subject matter experts on your specific concern. Book your session by contacting your Cisco contacts or request via the registration page link below.
Furthermore, our partners from Netrounds will be present during the day to talk about service assurance and how we need to find a new way to provide visibility and assurance. Talk to any of the Cisco reps to help you get in contact with Jonas Krogell, PM Netrounds, during the day. Or simply look for the tallest person in the room, that will most likely be Jonas.
Location: Berns, Berzelii Park, Stockholm
