Service providers are working to minimize the steps required for setting up equipment at the customer site, ideally moving towards a situation where a technician being physically present is no longer necessary. At this lunchtime discussion table, Prayson Pate, will lead a discussion of how service providers can accomplish that goal while maintaining network security, the steps that end users will need to take and whether CPE equipment should be provided by the customer, i.e. "bring your own hardware" (BYOH).
