The Autonomous Network – Technology and Politics

The IEEE Ottawa CS Chapter, IEEE Ottawa ComSoc/CESoc/BTS Joint Chapter, IEEE Ottawa TMC, PCS, and SSIT Joint Chapter, and IEEE Ottawa AICN are inviting all interested IEEE members and other engineers, technologists, and students to another Lunch and Learn in the heart of the Kanata Tech Hub.

SEMINAR: The Autonomous Network – Technology and Politics
SPEAKER: Phil Rackus (Director of Product Management, CENX)

DATE: November 7, 2017
TIME: Refreshments, Lite Lunch, and Networking: 11:00 a.m.; Seminar: 12:00 p.m. – 01:30 p.m.
PLACE: The Marshes Golf Club, 320 Terry Fox Drive, Kanata
PARKING: Free parking available.
ADMISSION: Open to all, free of charge. Registration is required.

Continued growth of bandwidth and QoS hungry applications combined with competitive pressure on ARPU have created an environment where service providers are towards a completely integrated assurance model – both to increase operational efficiencies and to improve mean time to resolution of network and SPIT faults. The operational model however is still domain, and even vendor, specific – both for good reasons and bad. This discussion will focus on realistic approaches to creating a highly integrated end to end assurance model that still respects technical and political domain boundaries.

A product and technology strategist, Phil has been involved in many of Ottawa’s most interesting technology innovations over the last 20 years. An alumni of Bell Labs research, a founding member of N-able technologies (acquired by Solarwinds) and a key member of intrepreneurial projects at Corel, Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia, Phil brings a keen insight into the commercial and technology challenges facing the industry today and tomorrow.
