Self-Healing, Network Automation and Beyond
  • Gil Rom - Head of Technical Network Automation Sales APJ, Cisco

5G has started out very much as a radio technology, but it become much more than that, it become the shorthand for total transformation of the network and how telcoes are going to deliver the new services. Things like Automation and Virtualisation are what our customers are thinking about when they say 5G. It’s not just a new Mobility, it’s a new way for the network to deliver services. The main concerns that come-ups in discussion with our customers is around skills, what people’s skills should be in order to deliver these new services, capabilities and new ways of doing those things. Join our session around Automation, Assurance and beyond closed loop as we take you the journey of what is Cisco’s strategy, what is available today and what is coming around the corner.

Hybrid Operations – Preparing for 5G
  • Tore Stenbock - Portfolio Intrapreneur - MS IT & ADM Portfolio and Offering, Ericsson

Virtualization of network functions is a prerequisite for 5G. However, full network virtualization will take time. In practice that means that most Communication Service Providers (CSPs) will have a hybrid scenario of traditional (i.e. physical) and virtualized network functions for years to come. The transformation to a virtual network environment will impact the organizations delivering the operations. For effective and efficient operations, having separate delivery units for traditional (i.e. physical) network operations and telco cloud operations is not sustainable. In this session, we will talk about the challenges on the virtualization journey as well as what is required to transform operations, including organization, skills, processes & service functions, and tools and automation.
