CCMI 26th Annual Negotiating Network & Infrastructure Deals Conference

  • 5/6/2018 –5/8/2018
  • Washington, DC

Industry professionals come to this conference year after year for its content-rich agenda packed with the advice and information needed to address the challenges enterprise users face in today's market.

Join TC2 and LB3 as we discuss the most effective strategies for tackling some of the biggest challenges enterprise customers will face in the coming year, and address everything from the fundamentals to emerging trends.  Not least among the topics we'll cover are: 

  • Best in Class Contract Terms - Controlling Your Price and Commitment.  The end result of vendor "streamlining" of their contracts isn't enterprise-friendly. Understanding the financial and operational pitfalls is key to getting a solid, favorable contract and avoiding problems with pricing, payment and commitments.  We'll help you identify the pitfalls and provide tips to control the procurement process, and gain a better understanding of what steps save time and cost.
  • Transformation.  Hear from our well-versed speakers about developments in wireless, emerging technologies and ways to refine your procurements, as well as the hot topics happening at the FCC that will influence your deals.  Learn about network security obligations, growing reliance on VARs/OEMs, and how mergers and vendor changes impact your services.
  • Developments in SD-WAN, VoIP and UC/UCaaS - and Continued Growth of Cloud and SIP Trunking Solutions.  SD-WAN technology is rapidly moving beyond its initial functionality, and Cloud and SIP Trunking options remain robust.  As products mature and integration solutions evolve, be prepared.  What are the best practices, implications for your procurement process, and key impacts on your infrastructure and costs?

This is not a conference where you simply sit and listen - it includes valuable time to meet and speak with all the presenters, ask questions, and network with your peers.
