2017 will be a year of significant change for many operators. Efforts to virtualize network functions and increase levels of automation; projects to upgrade fixed and mobile networks with new access technologies; and the need to manage evolving types and patterns of traffic will all leading to significant infrastructure upheaval. Against this backdrop, operators still need to ensure customers are getting what they pay for, which means their test and measurement activities need to alter too. Meanwhile, the T&M industry itself is being subjected to some of these changes: for instance, replacement of hardware probes with virtual probes, and the automation of test procedures.

This webinar will look at hot themes in test and measurement in the coming year, and what these will mean for operators.
