Mykola Konrad, Vice President, Product Management and Marketing, Sonus

What is preventing communication service providers (CSPs) from migrating their real-time communication services to the cloud? Is it concerns about how to deploy and manage these services in the cloud? Or simply fear of the unknown?

Sonus understands how to successfully make real-time communication transitions; it's in our DNA. Leveraging virtual, cloud-optimized SBCs, service providers can move forward with confidence to "unleash real-time communications in the cloud."

This webinar will provide a detailed review of the following six key attributes of a cloud-optimized SBC:

  • Automated scale on-demand
  • Automated configuration
  • Load balancing
  • High availability
  • Integrated analytics
  • Flexible licensing

Each attribute will be discussed and we will highlight its inherent customer value. Webinar participants will understand how these fundamental attributes are interconnected, and how as a whole they enable a service provider to unleash real-time communications services in the cloud.

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.
