Edge Computing – Bringing the Cloud Down to Earth

What You’ll Learn

Explore how edge computing offers businesses a frictionless, high-performance, low-latency experience for applications in hybrid, multi, and distributed cloud environments. Discover key steps industry players are taking to support mission critical and emerging digital applications like AR/VR, tactile Internet, autonomous vehicles, robotics, and more that require powerful compute capabilities deployed closer to end users.  Get up to speed on efforts to provide end-to-end application performance and security orchestrated across an ecosystem of automated and virtualized networks that incorporate edge computing, 5G, SD-WAN, SASE, NFV, and other advanced digital transformation solutions. The edge is more than compute. It is also a platform where enterprise applications can call upon edge PaaS APIs for specific digital edge services.

KEYNOTE Build the Future: Shift to the Edge – Mo Katibeh, Chief Product & Platform Officer, AT&T Business

The incredible value at the edge – where companies can exert greater control of application data, benefit from the speeds of localized compute, and enable entirely new experiences – is only growing. Join Mo Katibeh, Chief Product and Platform Officer for AT&T Business, as he dives further into multi-access edge compute, network edge compute, and what the future holds as these technologies join forces with 5G and 5G+ environments.

EXECUTIVES IN CONVERSATION Faster, Closer, Smarter. CTO to CTO: Steve Alexander, SVP & CTO, Ciena with Pascal Menezes, CTO, MEF

PUSHING THE EDGE – ANALYSTS’ CORNER: Market Insights From David Strauss, Broadband Success Partners & Ian Redpath, Practice Leader – Components, Transport, Routing, Omdia


As edge computing proliferate to various sites closer to users, machines and applications, this session will focus on the various MEF’s projects on edge computing and the relationship to MEF’ current activities in orchestrated carrier ethernet, SD-WAN and SASE.


The path from the User to the Edge

Multi-domain orchestration for Cloud native applications, performance and security across the ecosystem. How are industry players supporting emerging digital applications as compute capabilities are deployed closer to end-users.


The demands of real-time applications & the role of analytics for customers and providers

The demands of real time applications, smart data connections, streaming video optimization and the flexibility to convert legacy and new protocols to support diverse industrial IoT use cases require ultra-low latency, real-time edge processing, protocol conversion and even local triggering of actions in the multi- service environment. How will analytics differentiate and demonstrate value to customers and providers.
