Multicore technology causes a significant disruption to the embedded software domain and introduces a great challenge to the entire software industry. Much of the existing software needs to be modified to achieve deterministic performance scalability on a multicore processor.

4G wireless network base band processing is a typical example of where scalable multicore solutions are needed. Moving towards 5G, the performance demand will grow even more, requiring cost-efficient usage of multicore devices. Multicore solutions are quickly gaining ground and, in the not too distant future, will become the standard norm for most embedded devices. Now is the time for the industry to embrace this shift in order to secure future-proof systems.

During this session, we will discuss the challenges imposed on operating systems and embedded application software by the shift to multicore solutions. Tradeoffs in performance, latency and functionality will be discussed together with the complexities introduced by scalability. Finally a solution strategy is proposed.

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.
