Network Edge: The New Frontier for EUC, IoT, 5G, and Beyond [NEDG2605BU]

A skyrocketing number of cloud applications. Giant-size files needing to be quickly transmitted. Highly mobile end users consuming these apps and files. When the WAN couldn’t support the new requirements of an evolving network, SD-WAN became relevant to solve these issues. But the next wave of transformation is here, and SD-WAN is ready to support even more resource-intensive requirements by becoming the network edge, absorbing other functions such as compute, analytics, security, and multi-cloud to enable the enterprise to support business where it is conducted—at the edge. In this session, you will find out how the network edge blazes the new frontier to become the business enabler for apps, cloud, users, and everyone at the network edge.

Bridging IT and OT by combining Pulse IoT Center, vRA and vRO [MCO3148BU]

This session will show how VMware Pulse IoT Center can be integrated with vRA and vRO for tasks and automation coming from the IT department. Why is this important? Imagine a change in the core infrastructure demands that all gateways (that could be hundreds) need an update of their local firewall settings. Without Pulse, this would be a manual task to update each and every gateway. Pulse does this via its remote management component in where an update package and campaign are built and distributed. With a vRA integration into the Pulse APIs, this change can be automated, including package preparation, and initiating the Pulse update process. From Pulse, integration is provided for all IT relevant information to send the data into vRO. Thus, greatly reducing the time to manage and monitor the shop floor from an IT perspective.

Partner Sessions

A New Theory of Gravity: Shift to Edge Computing [EIOT3704BUS]

We are at an inflection point in which the explosive growth of IoT and other technologies is going to dramatically transform the infrastructure landscape. As data’s center of gravity shifts away from the Cloud, new edge compute and network technologies and architectures will be needed to help companies deliver intelligence everywhere. These new capabilities are becoming more critical for operating in the digital business. As a result, not only must these distributed platforms be managed and maintained but also be secured to protect the business. In this session, Accenture will present our experience with co-innovating with our clients as they embark on a digital transformation of their business.

Unlocking Business Value with the Unified Management of OT and IT [EIOT3152BU]

IoT is fundamentally changing our work and personal environments. Connected things are quickly becoming the new normal, driven by the ubiquitous use of consumer-grade IT, the digital agenda, and the industrial Internet uniting the operational technology with its information counterpart. And the outcome economy is driving organizations to buy based on the value of the impact of the service rather than an intrinsic value of the product. Well-managed IoT solutions are a key way of unlocking that business value as they quickly provide tangible results and additional decision-making context. Learn how DXC is working with VMware Pulse IoT Center and VMware Workspace ONE to deliver end-to-end managed services and the platform that powers Industry 4.0.

Security Sessions

Secure Edge Systems and IoT Devices with VMware and Intel [EIOT3399BU]

The heterogeneous, fragmented non-standard environment of IoT makes it hard for customers to go beyond POCs and get real value out of the data coming from devices due to the inherent lack of trust of Edge devices. Intel and VMware have taken strong measures to create a secure framework at the Edge with the integration of TPM 2.0 capabilities into Pulse IoT Center. This helps with onboarding a heterogenous set of devices securely and attestation of devices at various levels of the kernel and application stacks in order to detect any kind of tampering of unmanned devices. In this talk, we will examine how VMware, as part its IoT infrastructure platform, has implemented the TPM 2.0 functionality to improve platform and device security built on a chain of trust from hardware layer to applications.

Bring IT Security Standards to IoT and Edge with VMware and Forescout [EIOT3170BU]

Security IoT deployment is top of mind for every CIO/COO. Do you know if every connected device on your network is secure? Can all of these devices be patched and managed if you experience an SSL attack? Join this session to learn how VMware and Forescout take a multilayered approach to solving IoT security. It starts with discovering all devices connected to your network and onboarding new devices to create an end-to-end trust model from the cloud to the edge. It then goes to monitoring both the device health and network behavior to confirm devices are doing what they’re supposed to be doing and making sure you can manage and patch edge systems and connected devices when necessary. Bring IT security standards to IoT.

VMware {CODE} Sessions:

DevOps Lessons at the Edge for Cloud Architects [CODE1716U]

Challenges such as security, configuration management, and scalability slow down adoption for applications with an edge or Internet of Things (IoT) component. As a cloud architect, you can design for these requirements in private, public, and hybrid clouds. You can increase your value to your organization’s IoT project by getting an understanding of core DevOps practices and how they apply at the edge. Working on a distributed team to a nail-biting deadline on a model Mars rover exposed us to DevOps at the edge firsthand. We will discuss design choices, configuration consistency, test-driven development, microservices, and continuous integration/continuous development (CI/CD). We will illustrate how VMware Pulse IoT Center, Wavefront by VMware, and VeloCloud by VMware can be valuable tools to accelerate your IoT project.
