    More about Meet the Agile Operator >

    The agile operator strives for agility in every aspect of its business.

    Customer Agility

    Customers have never had more choice when it comes to service providers. This has resulted in high sensitivity to pricing, performance issues and poor customer care interactions. Operators recognize this and have made "improving the customer experience" a top priority. Read more

    Service Agility

    Services have to be brought to market faster than ever. Operators need to be flexible to respond to fast-changing market conditions. This means operators need the ability to seamlessly build third-party partnerships, support multiple devices and meet a range of quality expectations. In short, they need service agility. Read more

    Network Agility

    The latest technologies, such as NFV and SDN, can help operators become more flexible and efficient in using network resources, in order to support dynamic services and to deliver an outstanding, innovative experience at scale. And, applying the right domain knowledge can enable automation and flexibility in managing network resources. Read more
