ORLANDO, Fla. -- Genband Perspectives -- Genband brought together 700 clients, customers, media members, and analysts in sometimes-sunny Orlando to convince them it is the de facto name in real-time communications.

Excitement for communications, specifically WebRTC, was palpable at the show through demos, customer testimonials, and the giddiness in the voices of all its C-level execs.

With a little less gusto, Genband Inc. set out to show it's ready for SDN and NFV just as soon as its customers are ready to deploy them. The virtualization technologies are clearly important to the networking vendor, but Genband's roadmap feels a bit hazy. Outside of "everything will be NFV," the company had little in the way of specifics to share.

That said, the conference covered a lot of ground, and so did our camera. Click the image below to launch a short slideshow of the sites from the show this week (in near real-time).

Giddy
Were speakers actually giddy? Was it over realtime communications? Or all the sugar from the candy?

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.
