Essentials of Cloud RAN 2 Technical managers, consultants, engineers and communications professionals who need to understand and familiarize themselves with future trends of Cloud RAN network deployment. Over recent years we have seen the evolution of the radio access network from large, bulky & power-hungry platforms to much more space-friendly form factors. This has been combined with the separation of the baseband functions (BBU) and the radio functions (RRU) allowing for flexibility and supported by fibre interconnect, known as “fronthaul”.
This program provides an explanation of the evolution of the radio access network to the Cloud RAN (C-RAN) architecture, describing why this is needed to support 4G/LTE-A and 5G systems, the cloud and virtualization aspects plus the development of standardized fronthaul networking.
Essentials of Cloud RAN
Essentials of SD-WAN 2 This workshop is designed for personnel and decision makers who need a basic understanding of the key concepts of SD-WAN including terminology that is prevalent in the industry, the various solutions available and the general direction of the industry This course gives the participant an introduction to Software Defined Networking and its application to Software Defined WAN in the Telco environment. SDN is arguably one of the most significant enablers in the modern computing & networking environments, allowing for rapid deployment of new services with optimal and automated management and operations. We will highlight the main features of SD-WAN from the perspective of both infrastructure and service requirements to provide an overall solution to customers. Essentials of SD-WAN
Essentials of Agile 3 This workshop is designed for those decision makers working in industry where you need to have a grounding “in context” of what Agile is and how it can add value to your business.
The practical aspects of the program are simply to provide awareness of some common tools that technical teams will use and what these tools provide to give you some exposure to “real world” implementation of Agile.
Agile lives in an ever-evolving world of inter-related frameworks and philosophies: Lean; SCRUM; XP; Continuous Integration; Continuous Delivery; and DevOps. In this course, you will learn what Agile is and is not, and how Agile Software Development can fit into a broader Agile Business philosophy.
When properly applied and executed, Agile can drastically increase your ability to manage ever-changing business and technical requirements, reduce your overall level of risk and increase your chances of success. Applied or implemented badly, Agile can offer as much pain as it promises!
