TIA Releases Documentary Examining Cloud Computing Challenges for Communications Networks – a Key Issue at TIA 2013 Next Week in Washington, D.C.

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today released “The Cloud: Building in Mid-Air” – the fourth installment in its Future of the Network documentary series. Each documentary in the series explores a critical issue facing the network and prepares viewers for in-depth discussions during the TIA 2013 conference, which takes place Oct. 7-10 in Washington, D.C.

“The Cloud: Building in Mid-Air” takes a close look at the growth of cloud computing and the network’s role as a foundation for cloud-based innovations, such as big data and software-defined networking, which are in the process of transforming the information and communications technology (ICT) industry. The documentary also discusses security and capacity issues, datacenter power costs and other hurdles to cloud adoption.

In addition to providing significant background information and graphics to help explain the challenges and opportunity of cloud computing, the episode features interviews with cloud pioneers and executives who are focused on virtualization, including: David A. Walsh, President, CEO and Chairman of GENBAND; Franklin Flint, Global Telecommunications Strategist & Marketing Director of Dell OEM Solutions; Rose Schooler, General Manager of the Communications Infrastructure Division at Intel; and many others.

“The Cloud: Building in Mid-Air” is available at: http://www.tia2013.org/future-network-documentary.

“The cloud is a game-changer for the entire communications ecosystem – consumers, businesses, enterprises and network operators alike,” said TIA President Grant Seiffert. “While cloud computing continues to accelerate at an incredible pace, TIA NOW steps back and takes a hard look at both the challenges and opportunities facing the cloud in the years to come. This engaging documentary also looks at the role of the ICT industry in supporting and enabling the cloud.”

Seiffert continued, “TIA will continue taking the lead in this discussion next week at TIA 2013, which features an entire education track dedicated to the cloud. We’ll provide actionable intelligence for how network operators and service providers can invest in the future and overcome challenges like cybersecurity and broadband capacity issues.”

Each episode in the Future of the Network documentary series takes an in-depth look at the state of the ICT industry as it relates to an issue of critical importance. The first episode in the series addressed M2M and the Internet of Things, while the second and third focused on broadband capacity challenges and software-defined networking, respectively. The fifth and sixth episodes – which will explore the ICT value chain and spectrum – will be released in 2014. Each episode will be archived online at TIA2013.org.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood.
