What You Need to Know About the New Adaptive & Intent-Based Networking Event

July 19, 2018

Have you heard about TMC’s upcoming Adaptive & Intent-Based Networking event?

Well, if you haven’t, I want to make you aware of it. And I hope you’ll save the date of Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 to participate.

Even if you have heard about this important new event, I thought it might be helpful to tell you a bit more about it. The Adaptive & Intent-Based Networking event will held at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Adaptive & Intent-Based Networking event was created to address the fact that networks need to change in light of the changing landscape. That’s true whether the entity operating the network is an enterprise or SMB, or a service provider offering cloud-based applications and services, connectivity, managed services, or whatever else.

Network operators need to figure out a more efficient way to scale their networks due to the growth of network traffic, and the fact that more business-critical, video, and other traffic is coming onto networks.

They also need to add new devices and users more quickly efficiently. That will be especially important in light of all the new and different Internet of Things endpoints that are joining the network.

Plus, network operators want to be able to accelerate the pace at which they can introduce new features and services to meet customer needs, be more competitive, and innovate.

Then there’s the security challenge. Cybersecurity is a huge concern for businesses today. And there is a new cybersecurity breach story in the headlines just about every day.

All these trends call for networks that are more intelligent, policy-driven, and programmable. Such advanced networks can enable businesses and service providers to more quickly introduce new initiatives, features, and services; keep networks up and running more reliably; and use artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate tasks, understand what’s happening on their networks and connected applications and services, and deliver better overall security, performance, and business outcomes.   

We’ll address all of the above at the Adaptive & Intent-Based Networking event, which is part of TMC’s The New Intelligence brand.

If you would like to suggest sessions or speakers for this event, we would welcome that. Our Call for Speakers is open through July 31 at this link.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
