Capturing the Promise of the Pervasive Network

Keynotes
        In the years ahead, communications services providers have the opportunity to become digital telcos, capturing the promise of the Pervasive Network… the increasing ubiquity of connectivity through devices, sensors and the Internet of Things. To realize this opportunity, CSPs must undertake a significant transformation:
  • Building next-generation platforms and SDN/NFV-powered ecosystems that use an API-driven environment to allow multivendor open automation, while deploying DevOps and Agile methodologies to ensure greater success.
  • Fostering the capability to develop and launch new consumer-facing services around IoT integrations, 5G and NFV, along with internal services that rapidly improve operational efficiency within the CSP itself.
  • Creating and managing agile operations that take advantage of advanced tools to enable real-time service delivery and create the ultimate customer experience, using the smallest operational footprint.
