Mobile backhaul is evolving from a static, linear connection to a programmable mesh interconnecting all mobile and cloud elements dynamically. It must evolve because the radio access and packet core elements it interconnects are also changing to support new services and industry verticals. In the course of this evolution, traditional distinctions between fronthaul, backhaul, and backbone are fusing toward an end-to-end ‘anyhaul’ architecture.

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.
