C-COR Chairman and CEO David Woodle, who will open the Summit on June 28th, said: “Our second event is industry-wide and will expand beyond IP services delivery over existing networks. Building on last year’s Summit, we will engage the audience in discussions on how operators will deal with complex challenges presented by legacy systems as they deploy IP-based services, and how convergence to common IP services over different networks will play out in the future. Our goal is to give participants an opportunity to interact, learn from each other’s expertise and gain knowledge they can use to help their organizations make better strategic business and technology decisions.”
