ON DEMAND WEBINARS

Accelerating the Internet of Things: The oneM2M App-ID Registry

The webinar is now available for on-demand viewing. You can also download a copy of the presentation slides.

With machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT) quickly evolving, it is critical that a foundation be built that enables applications developed on different networks and platforms to easily and seamlessly exchange information. The emerging oneM2M standard, which is developed under the direction of a consortium of eight global standards bodies, enables that exchange effectively accelerating the adoption of open M2M systems.

This webinar will explore how the potential of the oneM2M standard can be realized via the recently launched oneM2M App-ID registry and what developers need to do now to secure their spot in the global M2M marketplace.

5G Reimagined: New Business Models and Enhanced User Experiences

The webinar is now available for on-demand viewing. You can also download a copy of the presentation slides.

As 5G use cases and requirements are addressed globally, consensus is emerging around 5G's performance requirements and what it will take for the new networks to deliver an unsurpassed user experience. Providing a North American perspective, ATIS is not only advancing global 5G requirements, but it is taking them a step beyond their traditional scope.

ATIS' approach challenges traditional thinking by introducing 5G use cases with a focus on maximizing the Quality of Experience (QOE). It also seizes the opportunity that 5G presents for innovative new business models. These include sponsored data subscription models, leveraging the strengths of some of the biggest innovators in today's market. Both the QoE focus and these new business models have the potential to dramatically re-architect wireless network operation.

Earthquake Early Warning System Notifications:
Leveraging the Power of the Commercial Cellular Network

The webinar is now available for on-demand viewing. You can also download a copy of the presentation slides.

While full realization of the system may be years away, the goal of the California Earthquake Early Warning System is to provide the critical few seconds to tens of seconds warning prior to ground shaking. ATIS has recently completed a major feasibility study evaluating the techniques to distribute Early Earthquake Warning notifications to the general public through cell phones via the cellular network as a way to complement the California Integrated Seismic Network. This webinar explains the study’s major findings and how the commercial cellular network can best be integrated into this important initiative to reduce damage, costs and casualties when an earthquake strikes. The webinar will also introduce the California Office of Emergency Services and provide an overview of its planned EEWS system.

Advancing the All IP Transition of Public Related Safety Applications

The webinar is now available for on-demand viewing. You can also download a copy of the presentation slides.

The ATIS IP-Transition of Public Safety Related Applications Task Force (PSRA-TF) was formed to address one of the public safety community's most significant challenges: ensuring that existing public safety applications have a reliable migration path to IP-based infrastructure.

In this webinar, you will learn about what the all-IP Transition means for critical public safety-related applications provisioned on legacy copper networks. These include alarm circuits to local fire and police departments, circuits to airport towers and alarms, circuits monitoring railroad crossings, as well as those for sensors at gas and power company locations. The PSRA-TF findings offer insight into the solutions needed to advance these technologies into the all-IP future.

Sync in an NFV World

The webinar is now available for on-demand viewing. You can also download a copy of the presentation slides.

Network functions virtualization (NFV) has the potential to transform the way operators offer services. While it brings with it flexibility to enable operators to offer customizable services that can deliver great value to the end user — or as a leading carrier describes it, a “user-defined network” — it can also complicate network operations.

With network functions being replaced by virtualized software agents, what happens to functions such as synchronization that are tied into the physical layer? Implementing NFV could threaten the continuity of services that depend on dedicated hardware. However, it also provides opportunities for a makeover in the way synchronization is delivered.

Some of the concerns over sync and NFV are already being addressed in the data center world. Take, for example, in large financial trading houses where synchronization is tightly coupled into the software architecture to provide microsecond-level time-stamping to trades. The webinar Sync in an NFV World examines the new options for synchronization as it relates to NFV — and what it will take to enable accurate synchronization over a virtual network.
