Sterling Perrin, Senior Analyst, Heavy Reading

Joe Krystofik, SDN/NFV Solutions Planner, Fujitsu Network Communications Inc

Cloud-ready communications technology promises automation, interoperability, increased flexibility and lower TCO. However, before realizing these benefits, operators must overcome numerous hurdles, including heavy dependence on vendor-specific roadmaps; lengthy processes tied to traditional standards-developing organizations; and the technical and organizational challenges of migrating a network.

This webinar will explore how open architectures can address these challenges and more, helping to make the vision of on-demand service delivery a reality. As a proof point, speakers will highlight the MEF17 Services on Demand Proof of Concept based on open architectures and involving carrier participation from AT&T, Colt and Orange, along with a number of software and hardware vendors.

Discussion will include:

  • Network migration challenges
  • Increasing role of software and open APIs
  • Key open technology components and roles
  • MEF17 Service on Demand Proof of Concept collaboration and results

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.
