The convergence of voice, data and video networks is having a profound effect on telecommunications organizations, infrastructures, and platforms. Convergence is likewise merging traditional telecommunications networks and Information Technology infrastructures, historically built on separate technologies and methodologies.
Using common IT technologies, service providers can reduce dependence upon highly customized hardware to create new service offerings. This results in an operating environment, which can significantly reduce CapEX and OpEX, accelerate time-to-market, and provide flexibility to deploy applications in the environment best suited to the service, and requirements of the service provider.
The webinar will be led by three presenters with decades of experience in the field: Bruce Anthony
, IBM (News
) Distinguished Engineer and Chief Technical Officer for Next Generation Networks and Convergence; Scott Wharton
, Vice President of Marketing for BroadSoft (News
); and Ernie Bergstrom
, Vice President, Research and Founder of Crystal Cube Consulting.
TMC will be giving away a 30GB iPod ($250 value) to a random webinar attendee. Winner will be announced at the end of the webinar.
