Webinar - Software-defined networks for IoT: moving connectivity from commodity to differentiator

The challenges associated with delivering global connectivity are increasing and enterprises are becoming more demanding. At the same time, network connectivity is seen as being increasingly a commodity. But with the growing importance of AI and edge computing, the network is the critical glue that holds together a technology revolution.

On the 5th December 2023, join Transforma Insights for a webinar sponsored by Stacuity, which examines how the delivery of global connectivity, particularly for IoT, is changing to meet evolving needs and reasserting the value of the network.

Key topics

During the webinar, the speakers will discuss:

  • The network challenges for delivering global connectivity; including increasingly demanding applications, the headaches of providing consistent services across multiple networks and platforms, and regulatory compliance.
  • What enterprises need from a network and how their future connectivity requirements will evolve, including IoT and beyond.
  • How networks can be better architected to securely deliver the connectivity needs of today and for the future requirements of real-time edge-to-cloud orchestration, supporting AI and other advanced services.
  • What the mobile industry can (or should) learn from the hyperscalers - addressing questions of scalability, self-service and easy configuration.
  • How connectivity providers can turn the network from a commodity into a differentiator to enhance profitability and fight against commoditisation/margin erosion.
