Panel Discussion: Integration, integration, integration
One of the hottest topics is the integration of the open interfaces and who takes on the role of the system integrator and how that is managed in a multi-vendor environment.
Key stakeholders will answer crucial questions such as:
- Does the cost of integration and migrating systems outweigh the positives of no vendor lock in?
- Accountability – who is responsible if something goes wrong with the network?
- Will more suppliers actually trigger more integration and network management headaches? Addressing the fine balance between flexibility and complexity
- What will SLAs look like in future disaggregated networks?
- Are telco operators ready to manage a multi-vendor environment?
