The third installment in our series on Software Defined Networking (SDN) with Lync continues with an exploration of Quality of Service. In this session we'll explore how UC as an end-user application can automatically program a SDN environment so that the network can self-adapt and provision itself to maximize the performance of real-time traffic like voice and video. Together with our partner HP Networking, you'll get to see exactly how Lync and the network work together to provide optimal quality across the enterprise network.
Take a lightning tour of the many connectivity options for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 Store Apps. There are more than ever before: HTTP networking APIs, NFC and Bluetooth including ‘tap to connect’ and WebApi REST services are just the tip of the iceberg. See how to build apps that work with DataSense 2.0. Store settings and data in Microsoft OneDrive. Share state between a Windows Phone 8.1 app and the Windows 8.1 version of your app. See some practical demos, such as how to implement compression with HTTP networking and how you can handle credentials when accessing services that require user authentication. We’ll also take a quick look at building a mobile back end with Microsoft Azure Mobile Services and connecting with it from your app.
