Think beyond connectivity. Use Open source technologies to helping telecom operators transform their business and use innovative services such as Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics, machine learning, and self-optimizing networks.

Expand the innovation ecosystem. Open telecommunications hinge on tight collaboration between partners all working together toward the overarching goal of delivering an open telecommunications framework. Red Hat and its partners are working to deliver real solutions that solve real problems.

Create a better future together. More and more organizations rely on open source and open hardware technologies to deliver new products and services. Learn how open source is changing telecommunications.

Media & Entertainment companies need a secure, agile and virtualized network to unlock new services at the edge, maximize efficiencies of the infrastructure and deliver on the promise of 5G. In order for increased speeds and low latency to meet consumer expectations, 5G connectivity and edge computing capabilities will need to be ubiquitously deployed.

4YFN Keynote: The Innovation Floodgates are Open

Speaker: Susan James, director of Telecommunications Strategy at Red Hat 

Timing: February 27, 2019 – 10:45-11:15

Location: Fira Montjuic Hall 8 - Banco Sabadell Stage

Keynote description: Disrupt or be disrupted is the survival motto for businesses in this era of digital transformation. But disruption doesn’t pre-announce itself - you can’t plan for it. Instead, companies are looking at how to best get ahead of the future by organising themselves for innovation. But what do businesses need to start doing today to get ready? Susan will look at how an organisation can innovate around its core business, and take the opportunity to disrupt. Factors include how to embrace emerging technologies; how to manage digital skills both internally and through partnerships; and how to make sense of consuming open source and collaborating in community innovation.

About 4YFN: 4YFN (4 Years From Now) is the innovation platform of MWC, enabling startups, investors, corporations and public institutions to discover, create and launch new ventures together.
