Big Communications Event


15
May

Austin Convention Center 500 E Cesar Chavez St. Austin, TX 78701

Booth B501

The communications industry is used to the occasional technology metamorphoses - think circuit to packet, or fixed to mobile - but that isn't what's happening now. Today, we see an earthshaking reshaping of the competitive dynamic, which has helped spawn a tsunami of technology innovation. Both are ripping through the communications landscape. Virtualization, open source, New IP, IoT, 5G, telco cloud - these trends combined create an innovation wave that, by the end of this decade, will pivot the entire communications industry on its axis, producing an unprecedented shift in the fortunes of companies, for good and ill. Even more complex than the technologies involved, however, is the shift in competitive dynamic, which pits incumbent network operators against a wider range of competitors from the massive web scale players to the nimble applications and software developers. Each of these potential disruptors is prepared to reap the real value of ubiquitous broadband connectivity, for both the business and consumer markets, in the fixed and mobile network realms. Their success puts the future of incumbent players at significant risk.

EXFO experts will be on-site May 16 and 17. If you would like to discuss solutions —set-up a meeting!
