The contract which extends RCOM’s existing relationship with Alcatel-Lucent’s for over USD 1 billion, will deliver world-class, seamless voice and data communications services to RCOM customers. This is India’s first fully integrated strategic agreement and one of just-a-few globally, to meet the fast evolving customer demand for communications applications and services in one of the world’s most dynamic telecom markets.

Alcatel-Lucent also will drive a standardization of the tools, processes and best practices that are applied across RCOM’s businesses. Reliance Communications Ltd.

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.
