ZERO TOUCH & CARRIER AUTOMATION CONGRESS


   
Smart Networking for 5G & the Digital Enterprise
    Accelerating OSS Transformation for NFV+SDN

 
  20-23 March 2018 | Madrid, Spain

Zero Touch & Carrier Automation Congress

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are going to revolutionise telecoms networking operations and the strategic shift is already underway, in this transformation of Network Operations, NFV Orchestration & Services Management to an automated future.

It is time for a fresh focus – founded in production network reality – so join the market makers at the start of the Zero Touch journey!

Join the future of Network & Service Management in Madrid, 20-23 March 2018, at the first Zero Touch & Carrier Automation Congress

Driven by requirements for carriers to become more agile and responsive to their customers' needs, as well as commercial pressures to reduce operational costs and to address the increasing skills gap, Carrier Automation is a must-have for survival in today's fast-moving, dynamic and competitive business environment for telecoms services.

Legacy OSS has served the industry well, but new directions are now being established, built on new NFV+SDN infrastructure. Layer123 offers a fresh industry-leadership Congress to bring together the individuals and organisations spearheading change.

The countdown for OSS Transformation has already begun, we look forward to meeting you in Madrid!

Plan to meet over 400 Delegates

Together with Host Operator Telefónica, early Congress Partners Deutsche Telekom, Orange, NTT DOCOMO, BT, ETSI and MEF, Layer123 is delighted to offer this first Zero Touch Congress, a new global industry forum for network operations transformation.

It is time for a fresh focus to create the future of Network & Service Management – practical and collaborative approaches founded in production network reality – so join the market makers at the start of the Zero Touch journey!

With over 400 delegates expected from carrier networking and IT backgrounds, this is your opportunity to meet and share insights with the individuals and organisations leading the OSS Transformation movement.

If you have not experienced a Layer123 Congress yet, it is worthwhite viewing the short video highlights from SDN NFV World Congress 2017 as an example of Layer123's market leading knowledge exchange platform. Of course, as a launch Congress, Zero Touch will not be quite on the same scale as the World Congress, but the quality of speakers and attendees will be just as high.
