Simon Stanley, Analyst at Large, Heavy Reading

Himanshu Kumar, Technical Head, Network Solutions, STL

In a bid to create multi-gigabit-capable access networks, operators across the globe are looking to build converged data networks that are scalable, resilient and can support multiple use-cases for both wired and wireless connectivity. However, creating such a service-oriented-network requires detailing out several considerations, including required network characteristics, architecture considerations, overlaying technologies and desired service parameters. In this webinar, we aim to discuss the practical challenges faced while designing and deploying gigabit-enabled access networks and best practices which allow CSPs to address them in the most effective manner, thereby bringing efficiencies across network capex and opex.
