Regardless of the network operator type (mobile, fixed-broadband, etc.), reducing costs is always a common factor. When it comes to test and measurement equipment infrastructure, cost reduction is not any different. This radio show will introduce VeEX's cloud enabled service testing solution, emphasizing on how operators can minimize CAPEX and optimize OPEX. The show will outline how operators can significantly reduce heavy upfront capital expenditures with VeEX's all-inclusive test platform, and how they can optimize their operational expenditures by managing their test equipment infrastructure on VeEX's VeEspress cloud-based environment. VeExpress provides cost efficiency and service delivery agility to a network operators bottom line.
