Communications Service Providers’ Guide to ENGAGE 2023

NETSCOUT’s annual technology and user summit in October offers real ROI for CSPs.

Wavy colored Fiber lines

You may already know that users of NETSCOUT’s service assurance, visibility, and security solutions meet every year at some halcyon location to learn from experts, connect with their NETSCOUT team and industry pros, and enjoy meaningful peer-to-peer networking and discussions.

What you may not know is that this conference is free for our customers. That’s right: All the keynotes, technology sessions, certification workshops, and meals cost you nothing. Nada. Bupkes. Gratis. Free means free.  And this year our ENGAGE agenda has some of the most robust programming for communications service providers (CSPs) we’ve ever offered.

Seriously, you want to check this out.

Tap into Innovation

CSP attendees have a slew of options at our demo pavilion. If you’ve got questions about our products or solutions, our experts have answers. Honestly, they want to talk to you. I can tell you—from experience—that working a booth is dull without visitors. So come on over and bring your inquiries! No question is too challenging.

Are you thinking, “Don’t tell me; show me”? We’ve got you covered! You’ll be able to get your eyes (and hands) on the following demos:

  • 4G, 5G, Cable, and Cloud Service Assurance
  • Business Analytics with Automation
  • Radio Access Network (RAN) Performance, Optimization and Planning
  • Adaptive DDoS Protection for Service Providers
  • Advanced Network Traffic Reporting for Service Providers

Get Training and Certifications

Naturally, we have courses for everyone, but I’m talking to my people: the folks representing CSPs, mobile network operators, cable, and multiple system operators (MSOs). If you want to learn a bit more about the NETSCOUT products you’re already using—or are considering using—you will want to check out our hands-on workshops.

Connect with Peers and Experts

You’re going to work hard all day at this summit, no doubt about it. In the evening you want to schmooze, booze, and golf. Just joking! It’s not just golf and booze: There’s go-cart driving, racing simulators, laser tag, bowling, virtual reality games, 7D motion theater, and more to keep you entertained. Special note to all my lady friends: There is a Women in Technology luncheon, and I highly recommend you attend. If you’ve been to even one industry event, you know how nice it is to connect with other women in the telecom space.

Justify Your Attendance

I can hear you now, “Help! My boss is a cheapskate, I’ll never get to go!” I mean, “What’s some solid justification I can use to get my boss to sign off on this invaluable educational opportunity?” Of course, that’s what I meant. You knew that, right?

We’ve got you covered with a customizable template you can use at your organization to get yourself to ENGAGE. Use it as your starting point: It covers all the value you’ll be adding once you’ve attended and outlines the ROI your employer will get by investing in you.
