ZERO TOUCH & CARRIER AUTOMATION CONGRESS


   
Streamlining Operations for Dynamic Networks & 5G
   Creating the Next-Generation OSS

 
  20-22 March 2018 | Madrid, Spain

Zero Touch & Carrier Automation Congress


The days of OSS are numbered!

It may be a large number of days, but already it’s clear that the scaling demands of 5G and IoT applications – combined with the flexibility and cloudification of NFV and SDN infrastructure – are far beyond today’s OSS systems.

Even a “Next-Generation OSS” or a “Future OSS” is ill-suited to support the Network Transformation all Service Providers are facing, or are already working on, thanks to SDN+NFV+MANO disruptive innovation.

A vision of Zero Touch and a strategic objective of Carrier Automation will propel the industry forward into the next phase, and help ensure that the future network will be fit for purpose, meeting the fast-moving demands of the Digital Enterprise and the Networked Society.

Join the future of Network & Service Management in Madrid, 20-22 March, at the first Zero Touch & Carrier Automation Congress.

The countdown has already begun!
