Date: 16 April


Time: 2PM London/9AM New York

This Webinar will explore key successes, future strategies for pursuing extended cloud service models and the main trends in connectivity and WAN services for enabling cloud. Global providers are well-positioned to add cloud services to their solutions, but one size does not fit all. Can telcos convince the market that there is a clear benefit to sourcing cloud and network from a single provider? In the UK, the agenda has become ‘cloud first’ by central government order; working on the principal that it should seek to use existing solutions rather than looking for bespoke services. Meanwhile, virtualisation of communications has allowed Over the Top (OTT) players to gain traction, and SME app stores need more innovation to reach the next set of users.

Register to the Current Analysis “Enterprise Cloud & Network Service Trends in Europe” Webinar so that we may share with our insights into the rapidly evolving cloud and network services space targeting several enterprise market segments. The Webinar will cover the main carrier initiatives and provide analysis on the progress of carrier-neutral versus network-centric cloud services. We will provide ample examples of carrier initiatives in network and virtualization technologies designed to beat the competition and stand out. The session will start with the access story, and move towards the core upon which services are being delivered giving a summary of the effective go-to-market messaging carriers are adopting to gain share.
