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.

A case study will be used to expand on topics such as multi-tenancy, quantum networking and application deployment. The use of open source and commercial tools such as Puppet will also be discussed. This session is very technical with a lot of configuration details.

BRKAPP-9000 - Introduction to Application Centric Infrastructure. (2014 Milan)This session is an intermediate session that provides detailed information on Application Centric infrastructure and the requirement to drive data center infrastructure based on application demands.
The methodologies behind application development and deployment are constantly changing. The current trends of massively scalable applications, cloud deployments and DevOps practices have placed new stresses on data center infrastructure. Infrastructure has become a bottleneck for application development, deployment and growth.Application Centric Infrastructure places the application center stage in the infrastructure design process and automates the configuration of the hardware underneath. This approach provides a platform for automation, orchestration and higher level system control while bridging the language barriers between development and infrastructure teams.
PSORST-2003 - Integrated Branch Services without Compromise (2013 Orlando)You don't have to trade off performance for rich services delivery anymore. Learn about the architectural advancements of the Cisco Enterprise routing portfolio that provides tighter integration of integrated services with significantly improved performance.
In this session, you will get a technical overview on how Cisco's new multi-core IOS XE architecture forwards packets and how the services virtualization layer allow you to run integrated services, such as Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) and Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Services (ASA) firewall, within the router just like they're on an appliance. You'll become the expert on this new flagship of the ISR portfolio and know more about the technology under the hood than anyone else you know.
