Cloud agility, virtualization and software-defined networking are fueling rapid change in today's transport networks. New open groups, standards and concepts are introducing software-driven networking paradigms to achieve innovation, flexibility and interoperability. Network operators are being driven to replace converged, proprietary systems with modular platforms that have open programmability. But, as a service provider, why must you change operating models or risk being left behind? What derived benefits will enable you to maintain a competitive advantage? And, how do you find the right partner to collaborate on this network evolution?

This webinar will cover:

  • Top network challenges facing the present mode of operation
  • Different degrees of "openness" in transport networks
  • Key benefits of an open source software and hardware development model
  • Operator's checklist for selecting an open networking partner

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.
