Operational Transformation: Accelerating the Journey to Zero Touch Network Automation & Orchestration

In order to accomplish true operational transformation, Communications Service Providers need to solve not only for the technology, but the people and processes to support it. Itential’s VP of Automation Strategy, Morgan Stern, joins a FutureNet World panel with Aaron Boasman-Patel of TM Forum, Kristy Bright of Virgin Media O2, and Abhilekh Bhardwaj of Three UK to discuss:

  • Defining the roadmap for new operations models.
  • In the promised future 5G and ‘sliceable’ networks, what should network operations look like?
  • What is the optimum organizational model and where does accountability for AI/Automation activities sit within a modern Telco?
  • Ensuring AI and data are at the core of the transformation model.
  • Moving towards scalable and cloud-native network services delivery.
