NTT America CTO Delivers Keynote Presentation on Software-defined Networking

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) and its wholly owned subsidiary NTT America, a global IT infrastructure services provider, today announced NTT America CTO, Doug Junkins, will share insight into the transformative networking trend of software-defined networking (SDN) with attendees of Light Reading’s Ethernet Expo Americas 2012. Light Reading’s Ethernet Expo, taking place in New York City, November 6 – 8, 2012, is one of the premier Carrier Ethernet networking events of the year. The event assembles experts from the service provider, supplier and analyst communities to present the latest trends in Ethernet to hundreds of avid service provider network planners, engineers and marketing professionals in attendance.

On November 7 at 8:55 a.m. EST, Mr. Junkins, an authority in the service provider community, will deliver a keynote presentation during the portion of the event dedicated to Industry Perspectives On Software Defined Networking/Programmable Networks. He will join experts from the industry standards and network solutions vendor communities to offer unique perspectives on the emergence of SDN/programmable networks. Mr. Junkins’ session will profile the potential cost-saving benefits that SDN provides network operators and the game-changing opportunities it presents service providers to differentiate their service and applications portfolios. As NTT America’s CTO, Mr. Junkins is responsible for the company’s technology procurement strategy and vendor selection, industry relations and standardization efforts, and product portfolio coordination across the Global IP Network, Data Center Services and Global Solutions business units of NTT America.

Mr. Junkins will highlight NTT Com’s position as the first service provider to apply SDN technology through the OpenFlow protocol to its infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering, the new NTT Com Enterprise Cloud. SDN helps clients that have significant cloud capacity requirements; it optimizes traffic flows and cloud workloads between and among data center facilities and separate clouds, supporting a more scalable and efficient provisioning model for on-demand delivery.

NTT Com’s new Enterprise Cloud provides global cloud resources that enterprise customers can easily control and manage to optimize their IT costs and support the global expansion of corporate operations. Many multinational enterprises with growing global operations are struggling with long lead times to expand and modify their IT systems, which can delay their response to rapid changes in the market. NTT Com solves this dilemma by providing flexible cloud services, employing virtualized servers and networks, and a convenient customer portal, to enable automatic system changes.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.
