NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2011) - Sigma Systems, an industry leader in Advanced IP Service Fulfillment solutions, will share insights on the business opportunities facing cable operators for the delivery of cloud-based and related managed services for their small and medium business (SMB) customers.

John Frame, Sigma's director of product management, will participate in a panel discussion titled "Managing the (Cable) Cloud" at the Light Reading Live Event: The Future of Cable Business Services, at the Westin Times Square, New York City, on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2011, at 4:20 p.m. ET. The session will be moderated by Heavy Reading's Alan Breznick.

During the panel discussion, John will share insights based on Sigma's experience with both cable providers and telco operators on the growing demand among SMBs for cloud-based telecom tools and services. The panel will also discuss the business drivers that are leading cable operators to offer cloud-based services such as web hosting, managed security, remote storage, online data backup, the opportunities and challenges these services present, and how service providers can prepare their back office to manage these services.

"Delivering cloud-based services to SMBs is viewed as an initiative that can provide a growth market for service providers," said Preston Gilmer, Sigma's vice president of marketing. "Service providers should start taking incremental steps 'now' in the cloud realm to offer new cloud-enabled services. Sigma is pleased to offer the expertise they need to address many of the back-office challenges, such as the complexity of integrating, orchestrating, and provisioning third-party SaaS services, in order to quickly realize this new revenue opportunity."
