The explosion of Cloud, Big Data and Internet of Things (IoT) demands the support of flexible and efficient networks that go beyond what is being offered by legacy providers today. Traffic growth is so rapid that customers are starting to demand more. In a transforming market, who you partner with will define your long-term success. We work with like-minded partners to accelerate how US Service Providers connect their customers locally, regionally and across the globe.

Our workshop will discuss our phased deployment of 100 Gigabit per second (100G) packet optical switched Ethernet technology across our global backbone network in partnership with Juniper Networks. We will be discussing what our upgrade means to our Software Defined Networking (SDN) solutions and how our customers can benefit from hyper-scalable on-demand connectivity in the United States and across the globe.

We have also partnered with leading internet exchange, AMS-IX, and the pioneering enterprise networking and security company, Cato Networks, because they share our vision for seamless connectivity and friction-free access to global destinations. Both will discuss how Service Providers across the US can better serve their customers' needs and capture new revenue with simple connectivity solutions.

The workshop will cover into the following topics:
  • Delivering the Future of Networking with Hyper-scalable Connectivity  
  • Supporting the Next-Gen Breed of SDN Providers  
  • Peering at a distance, why internet exchanges are now more accessible  
  • The future of SD-WAN today – network performance and security delivered as a cloud service  

Join Epsilon and its partners in Los Angeles this coming October to learn more about how we are supporting our customers with hyper-scalability across our SDN solutions and transforming networking with on-demand connectivity.
