AWS MWC Partner Solution Speaker Series


Leveraging Public Clouds to Transform CSPs’ Operating Economics

Kuntal Chowdhury
SVP of Strategic Alliances

Wednesday, 27 Feb 10:00 - 11:00

CC1.3 in the South Building Hall directly across from the
AWS Meeting Pods

Description:  The surge in data usage precipitated by advanced LTE, 5G, a geometric increase in video traffic and newer applications such as driverless cars, VR and AR, are forcing mobile operators to provision new capacity, and scale it up and down dynamically with a very short setup time. Conventional datacenter driven installation of core telecom services such as EPC, IMS, SBC require HW and SW capacity planning well in advance of operations, locking up CAPEX and increasing OPEX while reducing business flexibility. An effective way to resolve this operator’s dilemma is to move core telecom functions to the Cloud. We will share how Mavenir, a leader in virtualized telecom infrastructure such as NFV, Cloud RAN, has teamed up with AWS and successfully implemented its solutions in AWS Cloud.

SVP, Business Development

Wednesday, 27 Feb, 16:00 - 17:00

Hall 4 - Auditorium 3

Description:  While heavy industry and manufacturing gain a great deal of attention from ‘Industry 4.0’ conversations, the principles of creating data and converting it to actionable intelligence have a plethora of applications to every business. Improving the productivity, creativity and enthusiasm of your workforce; taking a fresh view of the business’ costs; making data easier to action; and simplifying repetitive processes all have the potential to make material changes to the bottom line without radical and disruptive change. Join John Baker in this case-study driven session to examine how intelligent connectivity can apply beyond heavy industry.

Virtualized RAN to Reduce TCO

To prosper in the 5G era, wireless operators must build cost-efficient, flexible, and agile networks to deliver innovative services and grow the top and bottom lines. The new model for wireless network economics is founded on dramatic savings in capital and operating expenditures through the deployment of distributed cloud-native architectures that foster new service models, standard open interfaces and rapid innovation – each of which is imminently achievable.

Verizon Quietly Builds a Completely Cloud-Based Wireless Service

Roughly three years ago Verizon management decided to enter the prepaid, BYOD market with a new stealth brand. Much like ATT's Cricket or Sprint's Boost the move allows Verizon to get into market niches with a different brand that doesn't carry the legacy trappings and associations that the operator's standard big red logo does.
