SD LAN: What it Means for Your Bottom Line

Thursday, August 23, 2018 • 10:30 a.m. CDT

Every passing day brings a growing need for more efficient and effective ways to connect a multitude of users, devices, services, and applications. With software-defined networks these potential growing pains can be alleviated. Although it may be a seemingly progressive architecture, software-defined networks empower network managers to make their infrastructures more adaptable, scalable and programmable to respond to evolving connectivity needs without inevitable CAPEX and OPEX inefficiencies.

Join Corning during this webinar to better understand the definition of software-defined networks and the role they play in the overall convergence landscape. This webinar is eligible for one (1) BICSI Credit. Register for this Corning webinar today!

Unlock Your Connectivity: OEM Compatible Transceivers, DACs and AOCs

Thursday, September 6, 2018 • 10:30 a.m. CDT

Although the demand for bandwidth continues to rise in data centers that doesn't mean capital budgets are keeping pace. Compatible Optical Transceivers, Direct Attach Cables (DAC) and Active Optical (AOC) Cables allow operators to simplify sourcing and realize substantial savings by avoiding elevated prices from switch vendors.

Join Graybar and ProLabs to learn about what to look for in a compatible networking vendor, along with data center trends around DAC’s, AOC’s and 100G. We will also discuss how to maximize the use of existing fiber infrastructure utilizing advanced transceiver technology. This webinar is eligible for one (1) BICSI Credit.
