Traditional networks are not optimized to deliver the on-demand bandwidth that enterprises need today. Traditional business processes used to plan, build and operate network infrastructure present obstacles to implementing an on-demand model. Additionally, the network infrastructure itself lacks the agility to deliver on-demand services quickly and cost-effectively. Independent research, conducted by ACG, found that costs are driven too high to profitably deliver services at attractive prices. Carrier SDN promises to change all this. It unifies service automation with network optimization so that network operators can deliver new on-demand network services cost-effectively and with great scale. How do you turn today’s costs into business strengths and profitability?

ACG’s independent study quantitatively shows how automated management of Layer 0 to Layer 3 will:

  • Reduce service creation time from 12 weeks to five weeks
  • Generate eight to nine times the revenue of present mode of operations (PMO) based services
  • Lower costs to deploy with payback of four months and five-year ROI of 400%

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.
