Service Assurance Is Key to Competitive Differentiation for NFV & IoT – by Heavy Reading
Information Resources  | 
2/29/2016  | 
This white paper argues that a service assurance solution for NFV and IoT needs several properties not supported by current systems. It suggests that the new service assurance approach should be consistent across all the network domains participating in IoT service delivery, but that it should be rolled out in one network domain at a time.

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.
