#CTS17: Network innovation & service integrity

On Monday, June 5, my longtime colleague and friend, John Papadakis, moderated a panel at The 2017 Canadian Telecom Summit that looked at Network Innovation and Service Integrity. John leads an executive advisory firm called Thinkedge, providing thought leadership and hands-on operational expertise to help technology-based companies accelerate their growth and drive business excellence.

He was joined on the panel by:
  • Shubh Agarwal, SVP Strategic Marketing, Metaswitch Networks;
  • Ibrahim Gedeon, Chief Technology Officer, TELUS;
  • Brenda Herold, GM Software Defined Infrastructure, Wind River Systems; and
  • Ashley Stephenson, CEO, Corero Network Security.

It is one thing to innovate in the network, it is an additional challenge to do so in the face of threats of cyber attacks, such as DDoS. To what extent can telecom service providers offer cyber defense as a service? The panel talked about the need to be willing to experiment, fail fast (and cheaply!) and try again.

Some top people discussing an important subject in an interesting way. I hope you find the video useful.
