Network Slicing is not a technology, but rather a model for a new kind of business for mobile operators. Inherently disruptive, it is also essential to the tectonic digital shift now underway across all industries. Operators will be at the very centre of this shift, but to reap the rewards and be competitive, they need to embrace the change, lead the way and begin the process of transforming their businesses today.
In this much anticipated webinar, Heavy Reading Principal Analyst for Cloud and Infrastructure Rosalyn Roseboro moderates a deep dive into the business mechanics of Network Slicing with industry luminaries, Cloudstreet, led by company Founder & CEO Mika Skarp, and Marketing Head Brendan Tully Walsh. Solving the slicing conundrum at the point of user demand, the webinar presents a clear path to delivering intelligent, application-aware, predictive QoS prioritized slices as the basis for revenue-generating end-user SLAs.
In this Webinar you will learn:
- About the mechanics of mobile traffic differentiation as the pivot point away from Best Effort
- How application, user and context aware Network Slicing provides the building blocks for SLA-based business models of the future
- How to build and validate low barrier network slicing business models one use case at a time
- How to leverage the power of predictive analytics to drive dynamic Quality of Service improvement and user demand with real world examples including Public Safety, Broadcasting, Online Gaming and Advanced Fixed Wireless
