Digital Leadership Summit: Leveraging traffic shaping and monitoring to optimize network performance in partnership with Gigamon

Thursday, February 17, 2022 10:00am to 11:30am


The Covid-19 pandemic has forced communications service providers (CSPs) to alter how they operate their networks and deliver solutions to their customers. Digital transformation was already a strategic priority, but the pandemic has increased its importance and clarified the benefits: improved customer experience, reduce risk and costs and increase profits.

We have observed increased demand for both network volumes and availability, and this has placed greater emphasis on network visibility and security and a core challenge will be transitioning to a virtualized, service-based architecture whilst minimizing risks and costs.

During this Summit, we will discuss how network providers can optimize the cost of monitoring and securing their networks for a 5G future. How to optimize and shape the data traffic to effectively understand their customers and enable new digital services for growth.

This is an invitation-only event for communication service providers. If you’re interested in attending this event, please contact Alexandra Caine.
