Stephen Douglas
IoT Solutions and Technical Strategy Lead – Spirent Communications

Stephen works for Spirents strategy organisation helping to define technical direction, new innovative solutions and market leading disruptive technologies which make a real difference. With close to 20 years’ experience in telecommunications Stephen has been at the cutting edge of next generation technologies and has worked across the industry with multiple Service Providers, Start-Ups and tier 1 OEM’s helping them drive innovation and transformation. Stephen is an ardent believer in connected technology and strives to challenge, blur and break down the silos which prevent innovation and business success.

Key talking points:

Speed of growth, types of applications/devices and skill sets of new IoT solution providers will radically change the dynamics of carrier acceptance and testing. To meet the challenge and not be a bottleneck new procedures need to be adopted: Fast baseline acceptance testing for minimal (critical) adherence (i.e. connectivity, security). Then, use live analytics to determine device/application performance, network performance and customer experience after a few device go live. Continuously monitor for service and network assurance. 

Actionable & predictive analytics will be central to managing the relationships between Service Quality (& SLAs), Network Performance and User Experience. User Experience associated with many devices will be critical as they become an extension of our lifestyle (i.e. Smart Shower – detects user via werable and adjusts heat, water power, direction & eco-savings to perosnal requirements), Predicting traffic behavior and early warnings of problems becomes critical as the range, characteristics and behavior of applications will be so diverse
