Telco network transformation in the 5G era: maximizing analytics and automation

Hosted by

Dr. Konstantinos Stavropoulos

Solution Marketing Lead

Dr. Konstantinos Stavropoulos develops and executes the marketing strategy for EXFO's mobile network (access, core, end-to-end) monitoring/optimization solutions, which include intelligent software platforms and expert professional services. His main areas of focus are 5G, 4G evolution, network virtualization/transformation, analytics, and automation. In addition to EXFO’s 5G solutions and market positioning, he actively contributes to the promotion of EXFO’s solutions for automated operations and fiber monitoring.

Konstantinos has been focusing on mobile networks for more than 20 years, through academic and professional roles. His experience covers diverse areas, from antenna array systems research and mobile network planning/optimization consultancy to the development/management/marketing of innovative software solutions. These solutions have supported automated planning/optimization, customer experience geolocation, device interoperability and acceptance testing, service assurance for physical/virtual networks, centralized and automated operations, and (big data) analytics. Konstantinos holds a PhD in electrical and electronic engineering from Imperial College London, has presented at dozens of conferences and webinars, and has authored several articles, blogs and white papers on mobile networks.

Digital transformation is not new and is, in fact, well underway. From service providers to vendors, and the industries and the people they serve, everyone involved in or with the telecom industry is feeling the impact. The hyperscale cloud companies – such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Baidu, Tencent and Alibaba – are pushing telecoms to adapt or risk losing significant market share.

This webinar will help you keep pace with this shift by unpacking the new vocabulary of digitization: network automation, SDN/NFV, AI, ML/DL, 5G, IoT, SON and other transformative technologies. Learn about market drivers, state-of-the-art solutions and key digital transformation enablers. Understand operator plans, strategies and modern scale-out network architectures to support the transformation of business processes, network operations and ultimately lowering/saving total cost of ownership (TCO).

Who Should Attend

Service providers, hyper-scalers, enterprises, system integrators, and application developers. Financial analysts and the press are also encouraged to attend.
