• About the Event •
This inaugural event will focus on how developing new network management and orchestration tools is essential to the success of the software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) plans of every major network operator. Hear more about the massive transformational effort under way to make network OSSs more real-time and intelligent to support the delivery of complex, next-generation services running across hybrid physical/virtualized network infrastructure.
Through carrier keynotes, Heavy Reading research, vendor perspectives, and panel discussions, this event will discuss new strategies emerging for self-organizing and self-optimizing the management of the network, the role of big data and advanced analytics in next-generation network management, the impact of new network automation and orchestration approaches for SDN and NFV-enabled networks, the need for standards, and how OSSs can evolve to minimize operational disruption.
Why You Should Attend
The success of virtually every major technology trend affecting telecom today, from big data to virtualization to packet-optical convergence, depends heavily on the ability to evolve today's legacy operations and support systems (OSSs). In this one-day conference, telecom executives will learn the scope of the OSS challenge, the requirements for their future efforts, and the likely first steps forward. This event's tight focus on OSS strategies will deliver new and unique insights that will enable network operators to better prepare for the changes ahead while also providing real-world insight from Heavy Reading analysts and other service providers on what is working today.
