The panel will discuss and debate appropriate application deployment strategies for carriers, service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers.
Each panelist will choose a position and defend it based on their company’s perspective. In addition, Tom Bonds, platform product manager – NEBS servers, Tekelec, will provide a customer perspective on why his team chose a hybrid strategy between ATCA and carrier grade rack mount servers. Audience (News - Alert) members are encouraged to bring their own questions and pose them to the panel.
In today’s market, both ATCA and Carrier Grade Rack Mount Servers are viable application solutions for carriers, service providers and telecom equipment manufacturers, yet crafting a deployment strategy with either option can be a complex decision.
