Globetrotting Telecom: Unveiling Connectivity’s Worldwide Potential

Do you have questions about open telecom networks? We’re bringing answers to your part of the world.

If you’re like me, reading a white paper about open, disaggregated networks is not always the best way to increase your knowledge. Nor is reading a blog, or listening to a lecture, or even watching a video. No, for me, the best way to learn – by far – is to sit down face-to-face with an expert and ask questions. Lots of questions. Yes, some seemingly silly questions, too. Some sort of fancy medium cannot replicate the real-time exchange of ideas that happens when people talk directly to each other – or at least not yet. With that in mind, Dell Technologies is embarking on a world tour to have in-person discussions with our customers about open, disaggregated networks and the benefits and challenges they bring to the telecom industry.

We’ll be exploring all facets of network disaggregation and sharing what our real-world experience has taught us. And we’ll be ready to discuss today’s most relevant industry topics candidly and enthusiastically. We can dive deep into how open networks offer greater flexibility and agility than traditional networks but are still evolving to offer comparable performance. We’ll also be ready to explore how open architectures enable telecoms to adopt, integrate and leverage the latest innovations at market speed and why the emerging open telecom ecosystem is so essential to the growth of open networks. Another area we’ll examine is the massive edge opportunity telecoms have with enterprise organizations and how critical open networks will be for telecoms to be successful. We don’t know everything – no one does – so just as you will be learning from us, we’ll be learning from you.
