Speakers shared valuable insight on powerful hybrid networking solutions that provide unprecedented user- and application-directed control over network, security, and service capabilities.
World-leading service and technology experts explored how business strategies, service portfolios, provider networks, and workforces are being transformed to deliver more customized, high-performance, cloud-friendly services optimized for the digital economy.
The first two sessions entitled “executives in conversation” included interviews with Marc Halbfinger, CEO, PCCW Global – interviewed by MEF’s own Nan Chan – and Eric Cevis, president, Verizon Partner Solutions – interviewed by Telecom Review’s Christine Ziadeh.
