Raise Your Voice: Accelerating Media Processing in IP Networks
This webinar addresses the voice and video processing needs of next-generation network applications, such as Voice over LTE and WebRTC. The rush to LTE across most mobile networks is being driven by a demand for data services. But LTE is a data-only architecture, so support for Voice over LTE (VoLTE) over the IP data path is crucial to ongoing success. The enhanced bandwidth of LTE also presents opportunities for both mobile operators and so-called Over-the-Top (OTT) service providers to expand service offerings beyond standard voice into high definition voice and real time interactive chat and video services. The architectures used to access communications services are evolving too, with the emergence of WebRTC, and cloud-based Network Function Virtualization (NFV) expected to revolutionize service delivery architectures. Attendees will learn about the media processing requirements of these advanced service offerings and see an efficient solution to the need to offer services at scale in server-based architectures, with minimum power and space.
DPI Platform Consolidation: Driving New Levels of Performance
Insatiable traffic demands are pushing telecom networks to the limit. Carriers are searching for innovative solutions to allow them to make better use of existing network bandwidth rather than simply adding capacity. This requires a new class of platforms, providing network intelligence based on Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) as a foundation for content-aware solutions such as policy control or network management. These allow the networks to manage data flows and deliver service much more efficiently. Previous generations of systems have typically employed special-purpose hardware to achieve high-performance deep packet inspection.
Multicore Packet Processing for Carrier Networks
Growing bandwidth demands and the continuing shift to packet-based networks are throwing the limelight on packet processing in carrier networks. Integrated multicore processors and general purpose multicore processors have a growing role in the latest carrier grade systems and are presenting exciting opportunities for network system developers.
