re: Exclusive Photos: Fire to the Node, Part II
You're suprised that AT&T is replacing the batteries? The report basically stated that they are perfectly safe, except for the fact that some of them are defective and blow up.

No doubt their lawyers let them know what the cost would be if one of these boxes resulted in some small child getting killed or a house getting burned down, compared to the much, much cheaper cost of replacing all of the batteries.

What do you think the cost of the replacement will be nationwide?

Live Digital Audio

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.
