Changing Structure of the Telecommunications Industry: Lessons for Russia & CIS

With the race to 5G picking up across the region questions about who will own the infrastructure still need answering. With the Infrastructure density required for a 5G network it is not plausible for every major operator to maintain a national network. One credible option is the creation of shared networks ensuring access and competitive pricing for all 5G network operators. Join us to discuss why the future of 5G is a shared one.

Who is best placed to operate a shared network?
What can lessons can the CIS take from other 5G network sharing projects?
What do global 4G network sharing projects teach us about 5G?

  • Deliver Better Remote Access with VMware SD-WAN Zero Trust Service Oct 20 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Chris Le, Senior Product Marketing Manager at VMware & Aamer Akhter, Product Line Manager at VMware
    With the rise of cloud computing, enterprises can host applications in their data centers and in IaaS and SaaS clouds, enabling their users to access these applications from anywhere. The traditional remote-access VPN solution for applications has a lot of drawbacks in today’s environment and is no longer effective. Enterprises are choosing Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) for adaptable network designs focused on users, identity, and applications. Learn how VMware SD-WAN Zero Trust Service uses ZTNA and a network of worldwide managed service nodes to provide remote users with consistent, optimal, and secure application access.

    What will the webinar discuss?
    1. The rise in cloud computing has allowed enterprises to host applications in their data canters/IaaS and SaaS clouds which allows their users to access these applications from anywhere.
    2. Because of this shift, the remote access VPN solution is no longer effective.
    3. Choosing Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

  • Restoring Trust to the Public Phone Network Recorded: Sep 22 2020 59 mins
    Chris Wendt, Comcast; Douglas Ranalli, NetNumber Inc.; Michael Campbell, TITAN Applications;
    The problem of illegal robocalling is massive, and massively expensive. The FCC tells us that US consumers are deluged with unwanted calls, receiving over 200,000 of them every minute, and that 47% of those calls are illegal scams. Given the wide prevalence of unwanted calls, an increasing number of consumers have completely lost faith in the integrity of the public telephone network and no longer answer incoming calls. Legitimate calls from people and enterprises without nefarious intent have become unplanned collateral damage, and legitimate businesses are experiencing increasing difficulty reaching their legitimate customers.

    To combat this pervasive and growing menace, the FCC has mandated that carriers must implement the STIR/SHAKEN framework by June 2021 in the USA. This has the intent of restoring faith in the public telephone network by eliminating one of the key contributors to the deluge of unwanted calls, fraudulent robocalls. The approach will create a circle of trust that consumers can rely on.

    In August 2020, next generation signalling and security provider NetNumber introduced the industry’s most comprehensive family of STIR/SHAKEN solutions to combat this fraudulent threat and help operators meet the issued mandates.

    Join NetNumber and guest COMCAST in this interactive webinar discussion that will outline the threats posed and explain the industry’s approach to address the challenge

  • The application of drones and digital twins in the tower industry Recorded: Sep 17 2020 92 mins
    The application of digital twin and BIM technologies to the tower space is starting to come to the fore. Yet whilst the technology is becoming increasingly sophisticated, the industry is still aiming to define the use cases and understand the top-level architecture that should be put in place. What’s more, without complete, reliable and well organised baseline data, the potential of such sophisticated technologies is unlikely to be reached.

    This Data Collection & Utilisation Working Group meeting will explore the potential being shown by drones and digital twins, examining current limitations and required evolution, whilst questioning how ready towerco data sets are to apply such techniques and whether they are able to demonstrate a measurable ROI.
  • Convergence of Subsea, Cloud and Data Centres Recorded: Sep 15 2020 49 mins
    Apostolos Kakkos, Paul Brodsky, Carl Grivner, Andy Bax

    SPONSORED BY Equinix

    With the current pandemic situation MENA organizations that invest in cloud solutions are better placed to respond to these unprecedented times, businesses that do not invest in cloud solutions are thus expected to suffer greater operational risks, even though they may have put off such investments due to security concerns. Interconnection based solution offer network services providers several significant benefits and efficiencies that can be passed on to cloud partners and enterprise customers. Aggregating the connections among enterprises, networks and clouds enables greater performance and scalability when interconnecting to networks and clouds locally and globally.
