Panel Title: Cloud X Open Ran = Greater than the Sum of its Parts?

When: October 19, 15:15

Location: Dubai World Trade Centre, Hall 3

Abstract: The appeal of Open RAN is about disaggregating hardware and software for open interfaces to offer more market competition resulting in more choice, lower costs and improved network performance. But the ongoing debate is far from settled. Tradeoffs between open standards with greater compatibility and a closed and controlled ecosystem with barriers to entry is never a clear-cut case. Where do we stand in the MENA region when it comes to and what is the operator appetite for disaggregated and interoperable networks? What is the potential cost savings versus operational risks such as system integration, security and inadvertent bottlenecks.

Title: The Future is Kubernetes-Native

Speakers: Alex Soto Bueno & Sebastien Blanc 

When: October 17, 12:00

Location: Dubai World Trade Centre

We've heard about Cloud and Cloud-Native in the past years, but don't be mistaken: the future is Kubernetes-Native. Kubernetes is an open-source platform that runs everywhere, and ensuring that applications are Kubernetes-Native gives developers superpowers to do even more! Join us in this session to learn how Kubernetes allows you to reuse your super skills no matter where you deploy. And witness how technologies like Service Mesh, Serverless, Java, Quarkus, and more help you solve today's challenging problems in monolithic and microservices architectures.
