Operators are challenged to deliver network performance, network coverage and a better user experience, as well as launch new digital services more quickly at competitive prices.

At the technology level, operators are transforming networks and IT systems to be virtualized, software-based, cloud native and more agile in terms of launching new services. How customers actually experience quality of service (QoS) needs to be monitored, as well as performance at a network or QoS level – across physical and virtual networks. This becomes even more critical in virtualized networks where services will be activated in real-time and need to be tested, fulfilled and assured in an automated fashion.

In September 2016, Heavy Reading surveyed more than 90 mobile operators globally to understand their future plans for QoS and QoE performance monitoring during the transition to virtualized networks. This unique research uncovers critical insight into how operators are addressing their needs.

Join Scott Sumner, director of business analytics at Accedian, and Sandra O'Boyle, senior analyst at Heavy Reading, as they share operator insights across key regions and discuss cost-effective strategies for monitoring the performance of virtual infrastructure and critical services.

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.
