Mobile network operations: a crucial and challenging area for any mobile or converged network. With a direct link to customer experience and network expenditure/ROI, it is not surprising that this area has attracted significant interest.
From end-to-end network performance and service quality visibility to network virtualization and automated assurance, operational topics have been the focus of many discussions about mobile networks in recent years.
But no interesting topic should turn our attention away from flawed management attitudes that have impacted on the performance of 4G network operations teams. If overlooked, these attitudes may also negatively affect the success of 5G. Fortunately, it is possible to identify what should be avoided and to outline the norm in network operations.
This webinar is based on the EXFO service assurance experience with leading mobile network operators worldwide. Join us for a lively discussion on an exciting topic, and take the opportunity to ask questions during the Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
