The threatening shadow is the increasing number of high profile, sophisticated attacks on carriers’ networks. Carriers are on guard for DDoS attacks at the network layer. The second shadow is the pressure to move your software-defined networking (SDN) strategy from the white board to proof-of-concept trials to commercialization. The good news is there’s a solution.

The USA FREEDOM ACT was passed into law to balance security and privacy needs and preserving the existing intelligence and law enforcement capabilities. This included the bulk collection of telephony metadata by the NSA. The new law requires telephony metadata be retained by CSPs, with judicial authorization required for government access to the data. This paper provides up-to-date information on the new approach, the specific challenges for CSPs, and BAE Systems’ interpretation.

10/5/2015  | 

In the age of cloud applications, the old way of building networks and delivering services breaks down because the characteristics of the static and proprietary telecom networks don't match the requirements of cloud services delivery. After struggling with this challenge for several years, operators have come to the realization that the best way to adapt their networks to the requirements of the cloud is to adopt the very same technologies that have made cloud possible.

Today's Digital natives expect the consumer journey, from sign-up to in-life usage, to be simple, immediate and highly efficient.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
