Breakfast Workshop: Sorting out Automation and Orchestration
  • Moderator Jim Hodges - Principal Analyst – Cloud & Security, Heavy Reading
  • Panelist Richard Duncan - Senior Director Systems Engineering, F5
  • Panelist Vernon Wells - Service Provider Solution Architect, F5
  • Panelist Bill Walker - Senior Director, Network Architecture – SDN, NFV, and Cloud, CenturyLink

Join Light Reading ad F5 for a special breakfast workshop! Open to service providers and cable operators only. 

Many service providers have already transitioned some of their workloads to cloud environments. However, while this is a positive step, in most cases this has been accomplished using manual vs. automated processes with limited orchestration capabilities.

Unfortunately, continued reliance on manual and non-orchestration based strategies will not deliver the scale and programmability necessary to fully realize the value of the cloud.  Still, while automation and orchestration unquestionably represent foundational capabilities that successful cloud deployment templates will be based upon, there are still questions surrounding how automation and orchestration techniques can be applied and implemented in private, public or even hybrid cloud environments.

Accordingly, this breakfast session will explore trends in orchestration and automation for virtualized architectures, and discuss the attributes of successful implementation strategies.

Specific topics to be addressed include:

  • How automation and orchestration differ, and how they relate to one another.
  • Why automation and orchestration should be adopted before moving workflows to virtualized architectures, and why they are important even for systems that are not targeted for virtualization.
  • The value propositions of both "simple" and "complex" automation, including the baseline capabilities that define them and how they can be optimally implemented.
  • The variety of emerging technologies used to provide automation and orchestration, and which ones have the best traction today.
  • The rise of DevOps, Super-NetOps and what these mean in practice for service providers.

Augmented reality on mobile devices is projected to outpace AR/VR headsets this year and rack up nearly twice the installed base of the entire AR/VR headset market by 2021. The Immersive Media Experience (IME) market -- virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality -- will grow exponentially by 2021. But does IME offer realistic new revenue opportunities for operators, and if so, where in the value chain are they best positioned? VR and 360-degree video will also substantially strain network resources and mobile AR could create its own challenges for mobile operators.  How can operators efficiently develop and manage resources for the support of such services, and how can they use network assets to better differentiate their own in-house services and gain a competitive advantage? Panelists will explore the best opportunities for operators in this burgeoning market, as well as examine the challenges of delivering quality experiences and the network requirements for supporting IME efficiently. They will also discuss the new opportunities for industrial VR/AR applications and the hurdles of developing common tech standards for IME formats.
