WTA Webinar: Service Automation and Orchestration for Teleport Operators
September 21 UTC-7
Tuesday, September 21st at 10:00 am EDT
Incorporating automation into a network can improve the performance and efficiency of time-intensive, manual processes, reduce staff workload, remove the risk of human error and drive down costs for network operators. For a teleport operator, automation is fundamentally about ensuring that potential hardware and software errors do not interrupt customer services. At the same time, growing customer demands are driving teleports to improve their use of automation. The next step for many is orchestration, the process of linking together a series of automations.
In this webinar, WTA examines the growth of automation and orchestration of network operations in the satellite and teleport sector. We explore the extent to which satellite and teleport operators have embraced automation and orchestration, the benefits, the barriers and challenges it presents, the opportunities it creates and what the future might hold. In researching this report, we solicited and received input from more than a dozen teleport industry executives and technology experts, who offered a wide range of viewpoints on the subject.
