You are invited to join Carrie MacGillivray, IDC’s Group Vice President and General Manager of Worldwide Telecom, Mobility, and IoT Research, along with a select group of your service provider peers as we look back on 2020 and how service providers are transforming and aligning business priorities.

IDC, Red Hat® and your peers will discuss the impact the pandemic has had on operations and strategies like automating asset management, optimizing customer services, and 5G rollouts.

We’ll delve into technologies needed to meet customer demands for faster speeds, rich content, and better customer service, address migration to agile digital platforms and the future of telecom infrastructure.

After registering, you’ll receive a complimentary happy hour basket* to enjoy while you relax and socialize with your peers during this special learning session.

The demand for services rose dramatically in several sectors due to the impact of COVID. For example, demand for cloud connectivity skyrocketed by 1,000% in many regions, driven by usage of collaboration and streaming media (source: COVID-19 Impact on the Worldwide Telecommunications Networks Research, May 2020). Communications SPs responded quickly to increased demand from cloud providers for significant bandwidth upgrades. They provided emergency provisioning of 10Gb and 100Gb circuits to facilitate access to cloud platforms. These deployments were completed in hours or days rather than the normal provisioning of weeks or months.
