Webinar: Growth for Network Equipment Providers in challenging economic times
How network equipment providers (NEPs) and hosted services (PAAS) on multicore processor technology are creating a new business model that is revolutionizing how services are delivered to customers.

Now available on-demand  |  Duration: 1 hour

Virtualization on new multicore processor platforms is opening up opportunities for network equipment providers (NEPs) to deliver new features and functionalities to the service provider customer base.

At its core, Platform as a Service (PaaS) cuts costs and the difficulty of evaluating, buying, configuring, and managing all the hardware and software needed for custom-built applications. As compute platforms evolve in core and edge networks, there is still a need to optimize processing hardware and software solutions for end-to-end communications. The webinar will discuss how NEPs can continue to grow revenue in challenging economic times.

In this webinar we will examine:

  • PAAS and ARPU – old versus new business models
  • Meeting new challenges for performance vs. power consumption
  • Securing tenants per platform (PAAS)
  • Self servicing and other requirements
  • New and future multicore virtualization roadmaps
  • Network processing: content insertion, extraction, filtering, and analysis
  • PAAS Case Example: M2M connectivity management
