Pre-Conference Workshops

Network Security Summit

5G will bring new technologies, new network architecture, and new business opportunities, however the ‘everything-connected’ era also brings significant new challenges and questions for security and privacy.

Join industry experts at the new dedicated Network Security Summit to understand the evolving threat landscape, examine new monetisation opportunities, and deliberate optimum solutions to secure devices and data.

Network Value Maximization

More than 400 telcos worldwide serve billions of people with optical fibers, base stations, switches, routers, and other network assets worth trillions of dollars. To maximize network value, they must optimize how they use their network assets for gains in both revenue growth and network efficiency.

Telcos need to focus on high-value customers in three areas: individual mobile broadband, home, and indoor coverage. They can then deliver high-value services on upgraded networks that balance their network construction with business needs.
