Accelerating Network Automation: Practical Guidelines for Automating Legacy & Early-Stage, Virtual Telecom Networks

Date / Time: Tuesday, June 19, 2018, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m London


Service providers are confronted by a conflicting set of needs: launch new services faster, dramatically reduce costs and ensure a differentiated service quality. Network automation is the only way to meet these needs, but automation has historically been expensive and time consuming to deploy. New cloud-native networks will change this dynamic but they are years away and providers cannot afford to wait. This webinar will address the reality of today’s physical legacy network and nascent virtual networks, delivering practical guidelines to make network automation projects faster and more cost-effective.

The webinar will cover the following points:

  • Current telecom automation trends and NFV orchestration deployment status
  • State of network virtualization and progress towards cloud-native networks
  • Principles of cloud-native service assurance/applicability to today’s networks
  • Target use cases for automation in legacy and early-stage virtual/hybrid networks
  • Case study: tier 1 provider deployment of cloud-native service assurance for network automation
