Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) are two key concepts that have aggressively spread across the telco community over the last few years. The pursuit of these concepts has created the widely-held expectation that NFV and SDN can make us all a lot more efficient, productive and innovative. Unfortunately, this is not yet the case.

Cyber Economics: Validating DDoS managed Service Delivery Models
Information Resources  | 
1/2/2018  | 
One of the disappointing but undeniable realities of today’s Internet age is that multi-vector distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) cyberattacks are growing exponentially year-over-year. Moreover, DDoS threat vectors are also increasing in sophistication, leaving many enterprises unable to defend themselves. These two factors mean that defending against DDoS attacks not only requires scale and powerful tools, but also mandates the implementation of a flexible DDoS portfolio.
Speeding Up Lifecycle Service Orchestration: A Blueprint for Delivering Dynamic Services Globally, Today

1/1/2018  | 
LSO framework initiated by MEF, promises to significantly shorten the creation and management of WAN services, especially those that cross domains of multiple operators. Moreover, LSO ensures that SDN and NFV work together across a multi-domain space. Even with broad industry support, full realization of the LSO vision will take a long time. Service Providers cannot wait for all the necessary LSO interfaces to be finalized and implemented in a new generation of BSS/OSS.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
