Technical Levels are defined as:

High Advanced/Expert level: Technology concepts and implementation will be discussed in detail. Assumes fluency with the technology being discussed. Most likely to appeal to practitioners responsible for technology on a day-to-day basis
Medium Intermediate level. Technology concepts and implementation will be discussed, but the focus will be on decision-making and trends around the technology, rather than on the detailed working of the technology itself. Assumes familiarity with technical concepts but not necessarily detailed, hands-on knowledge.
Low Introductory or Business level. Technology concepts and implementation are addressed from a high level if at all, with the focus instead being on markets, industry trends, or leadership strategies in which the technology plays a role. No prior knowledge of the technology is required to understand the discussion.

As enterprises move toward cloud communications, their real-time traffic traverses more IP networks that lie outside their immediate control. Furthermore, having call control reside in the provider's cloud changes the architecture in ways that can affect eral-time traffic. This session will help you understand the impact of the new hybrid cloud architectures on the performance of your voice, video, and other mission-critical real-time traffic, and whether you're risking lower performance levels. This session, led by the industry’s leading expert on realtime traffic performance over IP networks, will help you understand the challenges, and will offer some different design and monitoring options aimed at helping you ensure Quality of Service (QoS) in the hybrid-cloud future.

* How can you investigate and verify cloud communications providers’ claims about performance within their services?
* What elements of a hybrid cloud communications architecture will typically represent the greatest risk of performance degradation?
* What traffic engineering principles and best practices do you need to follow to ensure real-time QoS in your hybrid cloud communications deployment?
* How does the need to ensure real-time performance affect your network management staffing decisions? How extensive must your own monitoring and troubleshooting efforts be, even after moving some or all of your systems from premises to the cloud?
