PANEL DISCUSSION: WHOLESALE & ENTERPRISE – CREATING PARTNERSHIPS FOR CHANGING BUSINESS NEEDS

In a time when wholesale is increasingly eyeing enterprise as a sector for growth (the industry that has often admitted to being behind its retail sibling when it comes to innovation) carriers are forced to step up their game. In today’s competitive business climate, enterprises are looking for partners to not only deliver network reliability and security, but also to provide flexibility and agility to evolve international connectivity alongside their shifting demands. Gathering experience from both carriers and enterprises, this session will debate successes and failures in past partnerships and highlight future opportunities.

COFFEE AND NETWORKING BREAK


11:30am - 12:30pm

PANEL DISCUSSION: VIRTUAL SECURITY – WE KNOW IT IS IMPORTANT, BUT WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

Operators are under constant threat and attacks change daily. With the inevitable virtualisation of networks, the potential target for hackers only seems to increase. Constant vigilance and flexible multi-faceted solutions are required to ensure data security and safeguard uninterrupted services.


12:30pm - 1:15pm

PANEL DISCUSSION: FROM COMMUNICATION TO CLOUD – HOW TO STAY AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION IN THE CLOUDSCAPE

A recent global survey of CIO-buying intentions conducted by data storage vendor Western Digital reveals that 61% of major enterprises are holding or increasing their spend on cloud budgets this year. The convergence of telcos and ICT is an undeniable trend in the industry and while many carriers have aggressively moved into this space, with intentions of seeing it as a new revenue stream, it is no longer enough to provide Infrastructure-as-a-service. Carriers need to guarantee the quality and performance of cloud services end to- end (and much more) to stay ahead of the curve, yet does the carrier market lack the expertise to make this a reality?


1:15pm - 2:45pm

“WE LOVE MONDAYS” DRINKS RECEPTION

We know Mondays can be hard work, but with music in the air and a drink in hand whilst catching up with your colleagues on the day’s progress or toasting to newly formed partnerships, it has got the potential to turn into the best day of the week.
