Welcome to Automation Exchange


ABOUT AUTOMATION EXCHANGE

Telcos of the past look dramatically different than the integrated communications providers of today, as they incorporate automation and on the ultimate road to digital transformation.

Which is why Light Reading and Heavy Reading have created Automation Exchange, an exclusive portal that hosts the companies, products and people imperative to automation, while also delivering invaluable research, webinars and news about its most important topics.


WHY AUTOMATION EXCHANGE?

Automation is no longer a matter of if. It's a matter of when. Technology and over-the-top companies are undercutting CSPs in apps, content, the cloud and the Internet of Things, while aggressive competitors are slashing prices and chipping away at already dwindled bottom lines. With no additional cost-cutting measures to rely upon, and with dividend and debt commitments further limiting their options, telcos of old are finally shedding their skin and moving down the road of digital transformation.

Automation is the key to successful digital transformation, speeding operations, improving efficiencies, mitigating problems. And Automation Exchange puts all aspects of automation at your fingertips in one location that's simple to understand, easy to search and completely focused on information that's relevant to our industry.


WHAT'S IN AUTOMATION EXCHANGE & HOW DOES IT GET THERE?

A member of the Automation Exchange editorial team has personally vetted and created every company, product, industry organization and ecosystem listing. The editorial team also is responsible for approving and uploading all resources. People listings are only created by individuals themselves who opt to be included in the site.

Automation Exchange has three primary components:

  • A searchable index of 25 subjects that relate to automation, including topics like AI and Machine Learning, Blockchain, Connected Car, Edge Networking, Intent-Based Networking, Performance & Service Assurance and Virtualization Techniques.
  • A searchable database of 2,000+ companies, 2,500+ products, 460+ industry organizations and 15,500+ people that relate to automation.
  • Resources, such as webinars, white papers and case studies, relating to every facet of automation.
