5G's Impact on Media Contribution and Disruption

Todd Schneider, CTO Dejero

5G’s is the newest evolution in wireless networking.  But there is a mystery around its exact definition.  Is it a new RF technology? A new network design? Is it something meant to compete with last mile network delivery? Is it something that promises me guaranteed bandwidth? Also, when will it be available? Is it something I should invest in today? How can we influence carriers to be part of this great new promise? Is bonding still relevant? Hear how Todd sees the promise vs. the reality, the advantages, and costs media contributors and distributors need to be thinking about.

A Web-Based Application to Analyze Multi-Vendor Storage Environment

Olivier Rivard, Ordigraphe

With an infrastructure that keeps growing on different storage units, it is now difficult to have a global view of the data.  An analytics and data management solution such as DataIntell helps organizations to identify old and unused files and gives better insights into data changes, file duplication and used space over time.  This kind of tool is also a great way to understand the impact of a project on the infrastructure.

Designing the SMPTE 2110 Network

Ryan Morris, Arista Networks

Broadcasters and Media Distributors are no longer just considering the adoption of IP and SMPTE-2110 as something that can work given enough time.

He focuses on increasing the resiliency of the data network, from both an essence perspective, and a PTP perspective, while taking advantage of best practices for both.
