Massive non-uniformity in cellular networks, the constant change in subscriber behaviors, surging demand for bandwidth-intensive services and customer QoE remaining poor despite significant investment in network performance. These are just some of the challenges that mobile operators are faced with every day. As the complexity of networks increases and the demand for mobile broadband becomes ever more insatiable, the need for Self-Organizing Networks (SON) has never been greater. Yet SON needs a new level of sophistication - deployed correctly, operators can get significant improvements in performance, better service quality and increased revenues - all with fewer resources and minimum user touch. By targeting SON it can be truly revenue-aware.

  • The SON challenge
  • Extreme non-uniformity in mobile networks
  • Revenue-aware, location-aware, subscriber-aware
  • A self-learning approach
  • SON customer use cases

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.
