In today’s networks, the challenges faced by network operations teams are increasing, especially when trying to view collected data in a meaningful way, and then using that information to better enable operations teams' day-to-day activities. While ensuring that SLAs are being met is important, placing focus on the end user to make certain they are receiving the best QoS possible is even more critical. With the introduction of SDN, performance monitoring systems will become even more crucial to assure network efficiency and QoS. A heavy emphasis is now being placed on participants in this ecosystem to collaborate on what each element should provide in order to maximize not only development efficiency, but customer experience.

In this webinar you will:

  • learn how an assurance solution can be integrated into a real time network OSS view
  • take a deep dive into the emerging technology and how it will improve that capability set for emerging SDN and 5G networks



 

Brian Santo, Senior Editor, Test & Measurement/Components, Light Reading
Santo joined Light Reading on September 14, 2015, with a mission to turn the test & measurement and components sectors upside down and then see what falls out, photograph the debris and then write about it in a manner befitting his vast experience. That experience includes more than nine years at video and broadband industry publication CED, where he was editor-in-chief until May 2015. He previously worked as an analyst at SNL Kagan, as Technology Editor of Cable World and held various editorial roles at Electronic Engineering Times, IEEE Spectrum and Electronic News. Santo has also made and sold bedroom furniture, which is not directly relevant to his role at Light Reading but which has already earned him the nickname ‘Cribmaster.’

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.
