Telecommunications companies are part of the most pervasive and critical infrastructure in every country on earth. They cater to millions of customers, and worldwide they generate approximately $1.5 trillion in business revenue.

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a shift in network-based computing based on breaking existing physical boundaries on switches, routers, and controllers through well-defined APIs.

Learn how Telcos need to change their business models and innovate beyond connectivity to remain relevant in a world changed by the exploding apps and API economy and the shift from voice-enabled to IP networks.
