Three years ago, physicians fought insurance companies for telehealth payment and patients were often reluctant to connect via laptop or phone, yet technologists, vendors and a few infrastructure companies heard the siren call of future adoption, profitability and demand. One of these early advocates was Cox Communications.

The challenge of monetizing high-speed broadband was the most crucial component of operators' business strategies, a 2017 worldwide survey of service providers discovered.

ADTRAN customers -- the great and small -- didn't spend as much as expected in the first quarter. CenturyLink's ongoing post-merger review, product availability issues for Deutsche Telekom and an overall spending slowdown by Tier 2 operators kept ADTRAN's first-quarter sales and earnings below expectations.

The gigabit era has well and truly landed. Now the debate has moved beyond 1Gbit/s, 2Gbit/s and even 5Gbit/s services. Indeed, fixed broadband front-runners -- including those in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore -- already have deployed 10Gbit/s services.

IPsec is an important security technology for virtually all communication service providers (CSPs). CSP requirements for IPsec are shifting away from proprietary gateways due to cost and other factors like vendor lock-in. CSPs now require high-performance IPsec on general-propose x86 servers as this move opens up their business to more vendors, and gives them greater control of their network, at a lower cost basis. CSPs are looking for IPsec vendor solutions where they can deliver server configuration options, which achieve their requirements for deployment in the central office as well as data center environments. This webinar will discuss IPsec performance on x86 COTS servers, covering:

  1. Use cases for IPsec, including high-throughput data center interconnect, enterprise VPN and mobile backhaul
  2. How high-volume enterprise IT economics can support a new cost model for high-performance IPsec
  3. Brand-new performance test results showing IPsec on COTS can offer over 120 Gbit/s of bidirectional throughput on industry standard servers
  4. The importance of selecting the right server to ensure high performance and manageability of CSP networks whether in the CO or the DC
