BRKSPM-2005 - LTE Policy and Charging Control Architecture (2013 Orlando)Today's mobile internet is being driven by rapid change across the ecosystem. The challenges that mobile operators face are far more complex than just increasing data traffic. A growing number of connected devices and a growing variety of these devices ("phablets," smart meters, autos, sensors, etc.) are running more and more apps for our productivity and entertainment. Even as LTE promises to bring down the cost per bit through improved efficiencies, an always-on architecture means more concurrent sessions per subscriber on the network, with each new LTE subscriber increasing the number of transactions exponentially. Traditionally, the policy and charging rules function (PCRF) of the network is where operators mounted their defensive approach to network management -- ensuring fair usage, capping and throttling users and/or traffic types. This is what's commonly referred to as Policy 1.0. As more and more operators look to differentiate their service plans, policy control has become a strategic point of network control, not just for cutting costs, but as a way to monetize the traffic. This next level, Policy 2.0, focuses on the subscriber, the application, and how the service provider can deliver a more relevant online experience. If 3G was coverage focused; LTE is capacity focused -- ideally suited to deliver high-bandwidth, latency-intolerant, multi-media services. A scalable policy control solution must harness the capabilities of an LTE architecture to differentiate these services and create new business models based on the dynamic control of QoS at an application and flow level.

Every decade the video coding industry has come up with a major new codec: MPEG-2 in the 1990s and H.264/AVC in the 2000s which enabled the delivery of new services such as HD. The work to improve compression hasn't stopped. In early 2013, MPEG and JCT-VC finalized their latest codec known as HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) or H.265. We will review how HEVC enables the delivery of new services at either lower bitrates, better picture quality or high resolutions that H.264/AVC.
Ultra High Definition (UHD) provides 4 times the resolution of current HDTV and has been under trial at events such as the London and Sochi Olympics or the Confederations Cup. Whilst much focus is on the higher resolution, other developments linked to UHD provide additional value to such a system. We will have a look at how the end to end chain is impacted, from creation to delivery.
Finally, with the move from traditional SDI interfaces for the carriage of uncompressed video to IP, the timing and synchronization of encoders, mixers, video servers and other elements will require a new system to be introduced. We will look at how the industry is addressing this change and the different ongoing efforts.

BRKSDN-2777 - Open Network Environment (ONE) Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) (2014 San Francisco)The Open Network Environment Software Development Lifecycle (ONE SDLC) project brings IT techniques, for continuous integration and software development, to the world of network engineers.
Focused on the goal of fully automated end-to-end IT service delivery, the ONE SDLC uses DevOps concepts to marry different disciplines from the network and IT domains.
Through a combination of best practices, tools and sample projects, the ONE SDLC will help network engineers bring automation and programming techniques to their domain, and understand how to expose greater value from the network domain for their IT colleagues.
Using the ONE SDLC as a common frame of reference, network engineering and IT teams will be able to work together more efficiently with a greater understanding of each other’s respective domains.
This breakout session will provide examples of advanced development and tooling techniques based on the DevOPs VM, which combines simulated networks, development tools and fully automated samples.
BRKOPT-2118 - Multi-Layer Network Architectures (2014 San Francisco)This session will explore the role of IP/MPLS, OTN and DWDM when used as individual, independent network layers in Service Provider or Large Enterprises, their main applications and highlight the strengths of each one. It will then introduce the concept of a Multi-Layer Architectures and how they allow tighter integration from a hardware, software and control plane point of to improve the overall network efficiency. The role of the network layers will be revisited in the context of the Multi-Layer Architecture. The session will end with an overview of market trends and evolution and how these architectures will be key to address the exponential bandwidth growth challenge faced by the industry in the next several years.
BRKDCT-2328 - Evolution of Network Overlays in Data Center Clouds (2014 San Francisco)The session will cover the evolution of overlay networking in support of compute virtualization in the data center and beyond. We will cover the fundamental principles behind network overlays and contrast the different industry offerings (VXLAN, STT, NVGRE, LISP, OTV, etc) to understand pros and cons of each approach as well as the applicability of each one to concrete networking problems. A discussion on how overlays integrate with management and orchestration is a key part of this talk. The attendee should obtain a good understanding on what overlays to use when, as well as the breakdown of the different components of an overlay and how they can be operationalized.
