Senior Consulting Analyst Tim McElligott
There are many unanswered questions regarding two technologies that will lead the communications industry through transformational change: network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking. During this complimentary webinar, Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan addresses those questions as they pertain to operations and monetization, or operations support systems (OSS) and business support systems (BSS).
Why You Should Attend:
- Learn what factors are truly driving change
- Comprehend how NFV and SDN fit together
- Understand why operations and business management are so important and intertwined
- Find out if this is finally the end of the legacy network
This presentation will focus on the melding of IT, operations and networking. Therefore, it will benefit operations managers and executives, network engineers and executives, independent software vendors, and network equipment manufacturers.
"Silos have long been considered the bane of the communication service provider's (CSP's) existence. Silos are towering symbols of their reputed inflexibility, inability to innovate, and intransigence," said Tim McElligott, senior consulting analyst with Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan. "CSPs have come to accept that a transition to new technologies always leaves some legacy behind, but the time has passed for the legacy CSP. A future of flexibility, programmability, and speed-to-market must be seized to survive."
