Re: Ecclesiastes 1:9
A very fair comment.

Plotting a course between theory and reality will be interesting in 5G again, I'm sure. It feels like the direction of travel is positive. APNs have got easier, DECOR is specified, etc. in 4G. Micro-segemnataion is used on data center networks. In theory, multi-tenant "slicing" is a key part of the 5G system design...

Ecclesiastes 1:9
"There is nothing new under the sun". Who remembers when we launched GPRS? Remember how many APNs were envisaged? One per corporate account... One per service in the walled garden... Quite soon the configuration burden outweighed the value and most of this was collapsed into a "single APN to rule them all". Now an APN doth not make a slice...although some of the attributes were there...overlapping address space, policy-based routing etc. Don't get me wrong. I'm not anti-slicing. Far from it. Conceptually, anything which enables multi-tenancy to allow a hosting of verticals deep inside the telco is worthy of exploration. But each slice must earn its corn. And no dicing please!

Slicing and Dicing
I think every user having a slice is too granular right now. Will it happen in the future? Probably. But let's stay basic for the time being, shall we?

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.
