Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) places compute and storage resources in the 4G radio access network (RAN) to improve the delivery of content and applications to end users. The technology enables operators to better adapt traffic to the prevailing radio conditions, optimize service quality and improve network efficiency.

This webinar will discuss the benefits of edge computing in mobile networks and investigate the use cases that are commercially attractive in the short term. It will provide an overview of the MEC architecture and deployment options, and will address the strategic role of MEC in evolved 4G and 5G networks over the longer term.

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.
