Network engineers are the backbone of today's digital world, but they feel like no one is listening to them.
The telecom industry is changing rapidly and most network engineers don't have time to keep up with all the changes. They need a newsletter that keeps them informed on what matters most in their day-to-day work lives.
NED was created by network engineers for network engineers, which makes it easy to find relevant content without having to go through piles of useless information or read long boring articles just to get an overview of what happened in your industry during the last week or so.
NED will save you precious time!
You'll be able to quickly scan through everything that happened and start your day with a fresh perspective on how things are going inside (and outside) networks around the globe.
