Welcome to Fierce Network

The 4.8 earthquake in New Jersey isn’t the only seismic event happening in the world today. A hearty welcome to the brand-new Fierce Network, dear readers. The comms industry is changing and so are we.

You may be wondering why the change? Well, those of us working in the industry know that the days where wireline, wireless and cloud stayed in their own swim lanes are long gone.

Now, convergence is the name of the game, especially as operators move toward network automation thanks to the swift advent of artificial intelligence (AI), the use of open APIs and the shift to cloud-native networks.

Made up of your old friends, Fierce Telecom, Fierce Wireless and Silverlinings, Fierce Network combines the best of all those worlds to bring you unique analysis, original insight and the fresh voices you need to stay updated on industry shifts and new trends. No ChatGPT here.

Meet Fierce Research

At the same time, we are excited to launch a new research arm featuring a new face, Mitch Wagner. Mitch hails from industry stalwarts like Light Reading on the journalism side and Oracle from the marketing world, and can be found hunkering down with his two cats and a dog in Southern California. Mitch will be contributing regularly to Fierce Network as well as authoring our new line of industry research reports focused on AI, cloud, open RAN, broadband and more.

Our community of readers is already 890,000 strong and growing, and we are thrilled to have you along for the ride!
