Future of Delivery Panel: Pushing 5G Past the Downtown Core

A mobile standard isn’t much use if doesn’t reach very far.  The 5G specification depends on high density of cell sites to deliver its high-bandwidth, low-latency services, and big increases in both fronthaul and backhaul traffic to interface base stations with baseband units and data centers.  That’s great for the urban core, where demand is highest.  But suburban and rural markets will need alternative solutions: different frequency bands, different size cells and different ways to move fronthaul and backhaul traffic.  This session answers the question: what happens after you can get 5G downtown but need it in the countryside?

From smart speakers to maps on our phones, the cloud pervades our lives.  From news feeds to YouTube recommendations, AI is fine-tuning our worlds.  But some of the most profound applications for AI and the cloud are in the systems that help bring us AI and the cloud: in network provisioning, switching, routing, monitor & control and troubleshooting.  This conversation takes you inside the leading-edge applications that are improving the resilience and performance of the networks on which we all depend.

Future of Delivery Panel: OTT via Satellite - Coming to a Market Near You

The days appear to be numbered for traditional satellite-based pay TV.  The audience numbers are still attractively large, but the trends are toward cutting the cord and viewing over the top. But satellite and OTT are not always on opposite sides.  Satellite is finding new life as a cost-effective and high-quality delivery system for OTT content to specific, high-demand markets.  This conversation explores the evolution of the world’s oldest distribution system for video content into an important element in a new OTT value chain.

Future of Delivery Panel: Cloud Distribution: Not an All-or-Nothing Proposition

The broadcast industry has not adopted the cloud at the same pace as data-driven companies because the value of its digital assets isn’t just high – it’s everything. Both the economics and the capabilities of the big cloud providers, however, are making their services a must-have.  How can content owners get the best value from cloud service providers, avoid high hidden costs and ensure control over their digital assets?  This conversation explores how a hybrid approach to integrating the cloud into broadcast maximizes the value while managing the risks and costs.
