    Industrial 5G networks will mostly be discrete and isolated

    2,579 views - Posted July 8 by Dean Bubley Founder & Director - Disruptive Analysis

    A key argument cited for telcos having a central role in industrial / vertical #5G networks is "service continuity". Devices and users can connect both on-premise and in the wide area, because both are enabled by the same operator. An MNO can thus best provide on-premise connectivity as an extension...

    The New Digital Marketplace

    14,332 views - Posted October 2, 2019 by Rick Kapani Founder and CEO - Apptium

    The New Digital marketplace reflects the truth of “Evolve or die”. Customers expect more and smart systems are the way to deliver. E-commerce was your grandfather's front-end.  I know that sounds like a bold statement but the world has moved on because E-commerce today doesn't...

    Putting Customer Experience at the heart of operating models

    17,179 views - Posted July 22, 2019 by Rick Kapani Founder and CEO - Apptium

    Customer service is a people thing. It’s about how consumers, the people who buy things interact with the people at companies. Making that relationship work means those who are customer facing need the right tools to provide the highest quality of customer service.   The Apptium philoso...

    5G and what it means for service assurance

    19,442 views - Posted May 31, 2019 by Mounir Ladki President and CTO - MYCOM OSI

    5G; first there was a vision, then there was hype, then there were promises. Finally, it’s here (or at the very least coming soon to a network near you). Even in the UK, a market that was in danger of lagging behind on its 4G launches, we’re seeing EE switch on its 5G services in six UK ...

    18,977 views - Posted May 13, 2019 by Payam Taaghol CEO - MYCOM-OSI

    As 5G rollouts begin in earnest, significant questions remain as to how the business model will stack-up for next generation networks. It’s actually a little shocking that despite investing billions in spectrum and billions more in network buildout, this is still even a question.  We kno...

    18,979 views - Posted May 9, 2019 by Mounir Ladki President and CTO - MYCOM OSI

    A strategic digital transformation and migration of infrastructure to the cloud can cut a CSP’s IT costs by up to 31 percent. This isn’t a number I’ve made up. This is the judgement of 3 UK’s director of IT transformation, speaking at their media and analyst event last w...

    Digitalization – What We Thought is What We Now Know

    22,239 views - Posted April 24, 2019 by Faisal Ishaq Director of Global Channels and Partners - Sigma Systems

    There’s been a lot of buzz about Ericsson’s recent announcement regarding the write-down of their next generation BSS Revenue Manager solution. Lots of analysis, lots of reasoning, but I haven’t seen anything that actually looks at the logic behind what happened. Let’s s...

    37,081 views - Posted April 24, 2019 by Glenn Gibson VP Marketing - Sigma Systems

    Well, another Mobile World Congress has come and gone, another badge put to rest reminding me of how many years I’ve been at this game. As grueling as it can be, I’m quite fond of the ritual descent upon Barcelona and the demanding pace and non-stop interaction with all sorts of people (...

    I was lucky enough to attend the Realise 5G event last week in London, a kickoff for the summit in April 2019 to put momentum behind the rollout and adoption of 5G in the United Kingdom. The organizers brought together a lively and opinionated group of people – always a good combinat...
