Why You Should Attend?

A complete rip and replace of Huawei equipment will be expensive and disruptive to network operations, both short- and long-term.

Operators forced to replace equipment should implement a more vendor agnostic approach through a network virtualization strategy.

Operational Challenges System-wide rip and replace is seldom done. Typically, equipment is retired gradually and replaced by next generation infrastructure, allowing carriers to replace the incumbent infrastructure vendor methodically. A system-wide rip and replace with a new vendor can lead to service outages and other operational issues that can affect network access.

This law underscores the security of the American people and protects the network infrastructure that provides it. The enactment of this law also offers a way for rural operators that were most affected by the Rip and Replace program, to find secure alternative solutions.

“This legislation lays the foundation to help U.S. firms strip out vulnerable equipment and replace it with secure alternatives,” said by Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Roger Wicker (R-Miss).
