Predictions for 2019 Technology & Its Impact on the Ecosystem

The growth of the tech and telecom industry continues to drive forward at an exponential rate. The demand for a better, brighter, safer future is always on the horizon and as members of this ecosystem, we are continuing to come up with innovative solutions that will take us into a better tomorrow. As we reflect on 2018, we have to ask: What are the technology drivers for 2019? How will 2018 developments affect the progression of technology in the future? How is the increase in traffic going to affect our network, infrastructure, security and more? This JSA CEO Virtual Roundtable will explore these questions, as well as provide an analysis and predictions for the year ahead. Click here to reserve your seat for this Virtual Roundtable.

    Can the Internet Break? Network Infrastructure Needs, Opportunities and Predictions

    February 15, 2019 - 11:30 am EST

    Can the Internet Break?  Network Infrastructure Needs, Opportunities and Predictions

    You don't really think about how the Internet works, until it doesn't. Right now, the Internet is in danger. Many of the submarine cables connecting continents are now nearing their end of life. New cables are desperately needed as we look to next-gen advances like 5G, IoT and AI which will need to be supported by immense bandwidth. What is the status of these new builds to support this increased demand? This roundtable will discuss the infrastructure needs, opportunities and predictions for the Internet as we know it.

        TransPacific Connectivity Challenges & Opportunities

        March 15, 2019 - 11:30 am EST

        TransPacific Connectivity Challenges & Opportunities

        A shared (and largely untapped) opportunity exists between American technology companies and their Asian counterparts. As tech companies pursue new business opportunities across the Pacific, high-speed interconnection and datacenter access between the continents is critical. And while Asia-PAC has bolstered its bandwidth resources with the completion of the Asia Pacific Gateway (APG) submarine cable, and the Southeast Asia-Japan Cable (SJC), there remains significant opportunities for growth. This roundtable will explore the burgeoning opportunities and challenges for TransPacific cable builders, datacenter operators, OTTs and more.

          Blockchain & AI: The Next Gen Battleground for CyberSecurity

          April 20, 2019 - 11:30 am EST

          Blockchain & AI:  The Next Gen Battleground for CyberSecurity

          With the onslaught of IoT and the growing reliance on AI-driven processes, networks and machines, cybersecurity is a critical concern.  Enter blockchain, a distributed ledger that allows for public, decentralized transactions without the need for third-party intervention. Since the interaction is public, blockchain technology is often described not just as ‘reliable’, but also as ‘incorruptible infrastructure’.  Is blockchain the next battleground arena for preventing cyber attacks? What are the latest developments and deployment timelines? This roundtable will explore network security, blockchain and AI developments, opportunities and what we can expect in the year ahead.

                  Pushing 5G to the Edge, the Realities, the Concerns and the Real-Life Use Cases

                  June 21, 2019 - 11:30 am EST

                  Pushing 5G to the Edge, the Realities, the Concerns and the Real-Life Use Cases

                  The next era of 5G connectivity and immersive, always-connected experiences has begun. Reduced latency is a key feature of 5G networks, therefore operators are investing big dollars into densifying their networks and moving intelligence out to the edge.  This roundtable will discuss the opportunities and challenges of ‘5G to the Edge’; and items we need to consider, as key players in our telecom and technology ecosystem, to ensure we are ready for this new era of connectivity and efficiency.

                    ROI in IoT:  The Changing IoT Marketplace and the Path to Revenue for the Telecom Ecosystem

                    As IoT constantly evolves, there are more contributing elements, such as: a never-ending onslaught of online devices and applications; security safeguards and potential breaches; and smart network access and automation.   With these additional elements also comes potential new business models for revenue growth for network providers, data center operators and the companies driving the applications and services over the top. So as we look out to the horizon of IoT,  what role does telecom infrastructure play in this IoT developmental framework to ensure revenue growth? This JSA Virtual CEO Roundtable will explore the multiple paths to these revenue possibilities while discussing the challenges, trends and solutions for securing ROI in IoT.
