With use of SDN and NFV in the telecom domain moving from proof of concept to actual deployments, the OSS world faces new challenges. SDN promises to alter the behavior of the network and its ability to automate and simplify service deployment. At the same time, NFV enables the relocation of network functions to generic, commoditized hardware. These technologies bring a major transformation to the way networks are used and managed, and they extend the domain of traditional service assurance.

Where services are delivered over a dynamic combination of new and legacy networks, service assurance solutions need to intelligently and automatically identify and resolve problems, proactively prevent bottlenecks and predict and forecast anticipated capacity.

Join us in this webinar to learn how to manage hybrid networks efficiently using smart service assurance analytics and advanced automation. The webinar will discuss real-life operational and functional challenges and provide firsthand tips on how to empower engineering and operations staff.

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.
