Room: Mandalay Bay "L"
2:15pm – 3:00pm: Top Five Network Attributes That Enable Virtualization and Migration to the Cloud
Hema Ganapathy, Solution Marketing Director
Cloud computing and virtualization are the hottest buzz words in the industry today as data centers undergo a massive transformation of their servers, storage and network systems. The focus most recently has been on applications but it is the network infrastructure that plays a critical role to deliver these applications in the cloud. In this session, learn about some of the key enterprise trends and how they are driving changes in networking. Get an overview of what the network must deliver to enable ultimate performance of applications in a virtualized environment.
3:15pm – 4:00pm: New Trends in Video Conferencing
Peter Anderholm, Product Marketing Director
Twenty years ago video conferences started 30 minutes early to accommodate temperamental ISDN networks and video hardware, and these islands of technology ultimately offered a very poor user experience at a very high price. Video was used in special circumstances or reserved for executive access. Now with lower prices, better hardware and performance and most importantly deployment ease, video is accessible to enterprise users. Unified communications-based video conferencing today offers a user-friendly and productive way of getting work done, while today's new video appliances offer a panoramic experience for the price of a good laptop PC. Attend this session for an insider's view of video communications applications and trends.
4:15pm – 5:00pm: The Challenges of Next Generation IP Address Management
Maria Fire, Product Management Director
New technologies continue to increase the demand for better more efficient ways to mange IP Address as well as DNS and DHCP services. Companies today are continually looking for ways to consolidate, save money and integrate Green initiatives within their existing operating environments. In order to do this, companies must evaluate their existing IPAM infrastructure and identify ways in which they can implement cost savings initiatives during growth and leverage flexible effective solutions while keeping the existing mission critical infrastructure growing smoothly for tomorrow
Tuesday, April 27 10:15 AM–11:15 AM: Presence - Current Progress and Future Trends
Unified Communications Track
Jack Jachner, VP Alliances, Alcatel-Lucent
Presence is the heart of unified communications and, some would argue, of all next-generation enterprise communications. But presence loses much of its value if it's implemented within discrete systems that can't exchange information with each other - between different systems within an enterprise, between partner companies, with customers, and between public and private networks. In addition to exchange issues, there are important trends in providing richer presence content, automating status, and in the development of rules and policy engines that govern who is accessible to whom and under what conditions. This session will explore these topics and examine progress on these important functionality issues.
Wednesday, April 28, 11:30 AM–12:30 PM: Breakthrough Network Technologies
David Christophe, Marketing Director, Alcatel-Lucent
Given the combination of the economic malaise and the sensationalism that surrounds topics such as cloud computing and server virtualization, it is possible to surmise that nothing of significance is happening in the networking space. Nothing could be further from the truth. Venture capitalists and others have been funding significant investments in a wide range of networking technologies and the results of those investments are beginning to hit the market. The panelists in this fast-paced, PowerPoint-free session will discuss some of the most promising emerging networking technologies. Attend this session to get an early look at what could be some significant networking breakthroughs.
