Programme

  • 09:00
  • Visionary Keynote: When and how will Edge become a universal service?
  • 09:25
  • Use Case: Cloud Gaming: Games as a Service (GaaS)
    Gaming is an immediate use case for Edge with significant demand.
  • 09:45
  • Enabling localized services through Containerized Datacenters – localization and management of Edge data

  • 10:15
  • The Mobile Edge
    A vast number of new types of applications and services for multiple sectors, such as consumer, enterprise, and health will evolve at the Edge. In particular MEC is deemed to be a promising solution for handling video streaming services in the context of smart cities.
    But are towers really the answer?
  • 10:40
  • Smart City in focus: Networks for service delivery: LTE, WiFi6 and Satellite
  • 11:00
  • Use Case: Healthcare
    IoT devices capable of delivering vast amounts of patient-generated health data (PGHD), healthcare providers could potentially have access to critical information about their patients in real time rather than interfacing with slow and incomplete databases
  • 11:20
  • Content delivery: Is ownership of infrastructure critical at the Edge?
    Why have content providers who started as wholesale buyers now own their own infrastructure?
  • 11:35
  • Use Case: Live HD/3D mapping for vehicle automation
  • 11:45
  • Use Case: The Connected Car and Roadside Cabinets
    Why edge computing is imperative for the automobile industry
  • 12:10
  • Not connected to the Cloud? Infrastructure at the Edge
    Roadside cabinets, micro datacenters across cities, innovative wireless solutions
    With the interconnected Edge, is the Cloud necessary?
    How will standardisation play out and who will be ultimately responsible for deployment?
  • 12:40
  • Edge Investment Keynote
  • 13:00
  • Theatre Lunch Workshop: Edge Projects Update
    Latest developments across Edge projects already underway
    LF Edge
    Akraino Edge Stack
    EdgeX Foundry
    Home Edge Project
    Project EVE (Edge Virtualization Engine)
  • 14:00
  • DevOps and Continuous Delivery at the Edge
    Exploiting app opportunities that make the Edge consumable
  • 14:20
  • Service Provisioning and Billing at the Edge
  • 14:40
  • Hyperscale Edge Delivery
  • 15:00
  • Why must Edge be the next leap forward in application and infrastructure automation and remote management?
  • 15:15
  • Use Case: Manufacturing
    Edge IIoT activity is strong right now and very much a ‘specific vertical’ for manufacturing
  • 15:35
  • Sleeping with the Enemy?
    Understanding the ecosystem and marketplace potential of edge: collaboration means bringing in partnerships as market models. Incorporating open source approaches and utilising what already exists.
  • 16:00
  • Connectivity for Edge
    The relative lack of exchange points globally, means restructuring the network to deal with uploading from IoT instead of download, finding more efficient routes and circumventing congested areas (IXP and peering), and increasing connectivity.
  • 16:20
  • Security
    Will data management through AI offer less exposure to risk and breaches at the core.
    And how will physical security be managed?
  • 16:40
  • Case Study: German Edge Cloud
  • 17:00
  • Can we cope with data?
    Will a confluence of advanced semiconductor technologies, more pervasive and faster networks, and significant cloud-based data center expansion support the data explosion?
  • 17:20
  • Renewable Edge
    Renewables are mostly located in Tier 2/ 3 markets or even closer to the edge. If the hyperscalers develop distributed IT networks and modular data centers rather than centralised core facilities, then is a more sustainable future utilising renewables be possible?
  • 17:40
  • Edge in Space
    Which Space-related technologies are critical globally to develop for security and environment and deliver Edge specialist services more effectively?
  • 17:55
  • Who wins at the Edge? And when do they win over the next 5 years?
  • 18:15
  • Edge Reception
