Brief overview of the European market
Data and AI applications in operators, and how to overcome the challenges to scale.
2020 was a year of transformation for the global supply chain too, which became fragmented along geopolitical fault lines. What are the short and longer term implications for network operators and their customers?
There are different ways to automate the deployment of network services and network functions in telco networks. In this session, Patrik will discuss how 5G core networks running on a Kubernetes cluster can be deployed and managed using deployment servers, NFV-MANO facilities and 3GPP management services. The session will elaborate on the use of the Helm packaging framework implemented as a CLI-based solution or integrated in a container-technology-aware NFVO/VNFM or embedded (as an SDK) in a Kubernetes Native Function (KNF).
Calls centres are the most expensive way of dealing with customers, with low satisfaction rates – what are better options?
In Europe, many operators have embraced a climate change agenda, particularly around green energy. Is it more than a PR exercise and are their efforts in the right place? In this session, Emanuel will consider the importance of energy efficiency in telecommunications, the impact of 5G on energy efficiency, how to benchmark energy efficiency around telecommunication networks, the latest innovation around mobile networks, plus a future outlook.
The Customer Experience era is over; we’re now entering the Customer Expectation era. 5G brings the promise of anytime, anywhere services, adaptable, personalised for any use case or application, any human or machine. These expectations cannot be met by engineering networks from the inside out; Service providers must now solve for the customer first. Learn how MNOs, enterprises, their partners, and customers can use AI-powered insight to align forces and meet every Customer Expectation.
How much has Covid-19 slowed the progress of 5G – in standards, deployment and experimentation? What are the implications for telcos and their business customers?
