Cloud agility, virtualization and software-defined networking are fueling rapid change in today's transport networks. New open groups, standards and concepts are introducing software-driven networking paradigms to achieve innovation, flexibility and interoperability. Network operators are being driven to replace converged, proprietary systems with modular platforms that have open programmability. But, as a service provider, why must you change operating models or risk being left behind? What derived benefits will enable you to maintain a competitive advantage? And, how do you find the right partner to collaborate on this network evolution?

This webinar will cover:

  • Top network challenges facing the present mode of operation
  • Different degrees of "openness" in transport networks
  • Key benefits of an open source software and hardware development model
  • Operator's checklist for selecting an open networking partner
