CHICAGO -- Light Reading's Big Telecom Event –- The Big Telecom Event was a great success this week, provoking much discussion around critical topics impacting network operators today. You can read all about the event at our dedicated BTE show news site.

We took plenty of pictures during the event -- here are a few more to follow on from our first selection earlier this week. Click on the picture below to launch the slide show. (See BTE Day 1: The Big Pictures.)

Photos are by Light Reading art director Sasha Babarina, but she isn't responsible for the captions. (Society is to blame for those...)

Re: More Pictures From BTE
@Susan, good observation. 

Definitely, the engagement of women in the field of technology is definitely lacking.  It is an area that needs exposure and promotion, as well as development of the field for women. 

This is an area of growing importance - we need all the "human power" we can get.

DHagar, 

I liked the third slide as well. Rethinking complexity toward simplified networks sounds like a smart thing to do. 

The pictures show very low female presence, or maybe it's just these pictures?

Re: More Pictures From BTE
Congratulations - looks like a first class event!

Thanks for sharing - I liked the third slide (with idea of rethinking the complexity of current designs) with heavy lifting, and it appears that NFV-SDN is advancing and has the potential to further change the solutions offered.

I look forward to further reports coming from BTE - good stuff!

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.
