“Very simply we (iconectiv) keep the world connected,” says Sharon Dileo, iconectiv’s Director of Product Management. In this podcast Dileo is joined by Chris Bain, Director, Common Language Services at iconectiv, as we look at recent whitepaper findings and how a common naming strategy improves the effectiveness of real-time network operations and key business management functions while also bringing increased awareness when launching and managing new network-based services. Anyone who wants to better understand the impact and opportunity 5G holds, will want to listen. “Don’t fear 5G,” explains Bain as he places the 5G revolution in the contest of changes most industry veterans are accustomed to.

The greatest challenge communication service providers face today is keeping pace with technology advancements like 5G that support the rollout of new revenue-generating services in a way that is both profitable and scaleable. One of the main hurdles to achieving this is the deployment, management and interconnection of physical and virtual assets that support these services. To address this challenge, IDC released a new whitepaper, “Common Language Drives Customer Value for All Network Technology: 5G/MEC and Virtualized Networking,” which explains how service providers can achieve business value by maximizing use of a standardized nomenclature. Today’s podcast gives us an overview of this approach. Shulman graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in psychology.
