Good news! Now you can do just that, at Light Reading’s Big Telecom Event, June 17-18.

The theme of the Big Telecom Event is bridging the gap between technology and business. It’s not just about the latest networking technology for the telecom industry — it’s about using that tech to drive business value. You’ll learn about:
