In this episode of World Wide Technology's TEC37 series on Carrier Networking, we have a follow up on a previous TEC37 where we discussed the theory of collapsing the optical network into the routed network. Now commonly known as Routed Optical Networks (RON), fueled by Cisco, this architecture is being promoted heavily in the industry and is picking up steam. Join WWT experts John Chiarini and Mike DiVincenzo as they discuss the current state of the technology, and what WWT is doing to be at the forefront of its evolution and adoption.

Contact center employees and the customers they support expect an expedient, seamless and straightforward experience. The level of their satisfaction, for the most part, is a direct reflection of the technologies and processes in place within the contact center. Cloud-native contact centers are better able to scale, and paired with AI, deliver a better experience for both customer service agents and your customers. In this episode of World Wide Technology's (WWT) TEC37 series on Digital Workspace, WWT's Ed Villarreal and Kim Kimkenben are joined by Google Cloud's Kishor Aher to discuss how to better understand how real AI for contact center is today, and key considerations for moving your contact center to private, public or hybrid cloud.

 In today’s highly competitive digital landscape, migrating to the cloud is no longer a choice. Meeting the expectations of digitally-savvy consumers means maximizing cloud capabilities. Yet enterprises often find that migrating applications and workloads to the cloud can deliver uneven results in terms of added flexibility, scalability and computational power across a variety of use cases. If the wrong migrations tools or approach is used, even the most experienced cloud professionals can expect to encounter downtime, data loss or other severe consequences.

In this episode of World Wide Technology's TEC37 Multicloud series, WWT’s Paul Sala outlined the decision-tree criteria organizations should follow for cloud migrations. You'll learn about WWT's approach for identifying which applications are great candidates for migration, which are weaker candidates, and which should not move to public cloud — all while keeping your organization’s business outcomes top of mind.

We’re at the dawn of a new breed of applications that will unlock the potential of Industry 4.0 —a fourth industrial revolution that will make the enterprise more agile, aware, efficient, intelligent, safe and sustainable.
Industry 4.0 is enabled by critical technologies that are each reaching peak maturity at the same time. When these technologies work cohesively and are supported by modern connectivity like private LTE and 5G, massive companies can move at the speed of a startup while maintaining their brute market strength while meeting their internal needs.
In this new episode of World Wide Technology’s TEC 37 series on Carrier Networking, host Robb Boyd talks to WWT’s Dan Graham, Don Rogers and Jason Craig to discuss Industry 4.0, how it works, who can piece it together and how it paves the way for a wave of new Fortune 500 companies.

COVID took most organizations by surprise. Companies that had previously ignored cloud technology and strategy became increasingly disrupted.
Even companies in the process of digital transformation — while better positioned than most — were unprepared for the magnitude of the challenge.
As organizations increasingly accept that COVID is a longer-term challenge, they also have a chance to appreciate the pandemic’s silver lining: enabling “work from anywhere” and accelerating technology modernization across all parts of the business — even those areas previously not considered.
In this new TEC37 episode, WWT experts Darren Roback and Michael Johnson discuss how many customers had to pause certain initiatives, reappropriate budgets to meet changing demands, and scramble to enable services to maintain even minimum levels of business operations.

In the first episode of World Wide Technology’s TEC37 Networking Series, host Robb Boyd and WWT’s Syed Jafri and Chandler Heath discuss the role of Private LTE networks. 
These networks will help enterprises increase in-building capacity, provide a better end user experience and enhance the capabilities for enterprise level applications of Internet of things, while also providing a platform for the broader adoption of 5G.
Enterprises undergoing digital transformation can use Private LTE on the new CBRS band to improve in-building connectivity complementing WiFi6.
This high-speed, low-latency local area network allows them to connect all devices and “things” (robots, drones, sensors, machinery, buildings), automate operations, gain insights from customers and innovate new business models that position them to lead the digital economy.
In this episode Syed and Chandler will introduce you to the basics, discuss enterprise use cases that are most optimal for private LTE, how service providers can leverage their experience and assets to deliver seamless end-to-end mobility and how enterprises can leverage private LTE to grow their infrastructure offerings and foster innovation.
