Ethernet: Building a Bridge to Digital Transformation

October 04, 2018

John Hawkins, Senior Advisor for Product and Technical Marketing at Ciena and Susan Campbell, Senior Director—Product Management, Ethernet and Transport at Comcast Business, discuss how Ethernet is the backbone behind digital transformation.

A range of powerful technology platforms--mobility, high-performance wireless, AI and the Internet of Things (IoT), smart connected solutions, fast deployments, and of course, digital transformation--share the same backbone: Ethernet. It's the power behind the seamless delivery of a wide range of applications across networks for an increasingly broad array of industries, including finance, healthcare, retail, federal and municipal organizations, energy, and IT, among others.

We’ll explore how Ethernet serves digital transformation by:

  • Helping to standardize services, bolster scalability, and enhance both overall quality and service management. 
  • Working with other technologies to play a critical role in deploying applications from the core to the edges of your Wide Area Network.
  • Supporting data center, distributed enterprises, and cloud connectivity, easy integration for IP networks, and network simplification.
  • Enabling a wide range of applications, such as imaging, video telepresence, and BD/DR, and more.

Our panelists are:

  • John Hawkins, Senior Advisor for Product and Technical Marketing at Ciena, where he supports the company’s Packet Networking product line. 
  • Susan Campbell, Senior Director—Product Management, Ethernet and Transport, Comcast Business.
