THE REVOLUTION IS COMING SOON!
The communications industry is used to the occasional technology metamorphoses, but it’s not often the industry undergoes a fundamental reshaping of the competitive dynamic. BCE 2018 provides fresh perspective on the rapid transformation of the telecom industry and resulting tsunami of technology innovation.
Communications service providers are facing more than just speed bumps on the road to virtualization and the end goal of increased network automation. Barriers to vendor interoperability, standards slowdowns and the struggle to secure skilled talent are just a few of the challenges operators face in competing with web-scale giants, meeting unprecedented network capacity demands, and transitioning from legacy to virtualized networks.
Even as work continues toward ultimate virtualization goals, new priorities emerge: Automation, and the drive to an autonomous network has moved to the fore, as has edge computing, which also goes by names such as distributed cloud and FOG computing.
BCE is uniquely positioned to cut through the noise and capture the industry’s progress on multiple fronts, based on our unique cast of Heavy Reading experts and Light Reading editors. This event in unique in attracting telecom experts, from the service provider and vendor communities, in a joint effort to both chart progress in traversing shared challenges and identify the key places where attention is still needed.
The urgency behind these conversations grows as the 5G’s emergence raises the stakes, the cloud becomes pervasive and competition for revenue streams grows, both from web-scale operators and new innovators. As the event dedicated to telecom’s business and its ultimate profitability, BCE conference content will bring new context to these changes while raising new questions about what lies ahead.
BCE delivers this context across the vast landscape of the telecom sector: networks of all kinds, SD-WANs, data centers, cloud service providers, edge computing, automation, next-gen network architecture, video service evolution and more.
