Network Asset Assurance Panel Discussion

This 45-minute video is an oldie, but still a goodie. Subex’s 2013 User Conference included a panel that talked about the benefits delivered by network asset assurance. Network asset assurance is an emerging discipline which seeks to ensure the telco has an accurate and comprehensive record of its network infrastructure, in order to optimize capex expenditure, support efficient network operations and determine the ROI for each network element. The panel consisted of:

  • James Lester, Finance Director for Telstra;
  • Steve Cotton, who was Director of Business Assurance Programs at the TM Forum; and
  • John Brooks, VP of Product Management for Subex.

And the idiot moderating the panel was me. Enjoy the video!
