DALLAS, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Event producers of the inaugural Network DECOM & Lifecycle Management 2013 Conference and Exhibition announce the participation of TMNG Global and Black & Veatch as the Event's Signature Sponsors.
Scheduled to take place May 1 & 2, 2013, the Network DECOM & Lifecycle Management Conference is the first industry conference to focus on the wholesale decommissioning and other aspects of lifecycle management of legacy telecommunications networks, an activity which is expected to surge in in coming years according to analysts.
Ron Angner, Senior Vice President and Principal at TMNG Global states, "Many MSOs, wireline, and wireless carriers continue to operate legacy network technology while deploying and operating new technology and enabling new devices and services. This is extremely complicated and costly from both a monetary and human resource perspective. Most importantly, there is significant risk that customer satisfaction could be negatively impacted by maintaining multiple technologies."
Focused decommissioning plans that manage both technology and customer migration and reuse of valuable network assets will be critical for carriers as they try to decrease costs and increase revenues and customer satisfaction. Similarly, lifecycle management of networks to ensure the highest levels of service assurance will be critical to cost containment and customer satisfaction.Call for Speakers: The event's Call for Speakers is now open and will remain open until February 28. Prospective speakers who want to contribute to the industry education focused on network decommissioning and lifecycle management are encouraged to submit presentation abstracts online.
