Opening Presentation
Can the Telco exist (and be successful) in the Cloud?
The Cloud (or the Internet) is here to stay. Telecom providers are grappling with Over The Top (OTT) services offered by third party vendors, Network in The Cloud (or Software Defined Networks) and Security. This presentation discusses these issues/trends and some ways forward.

Marketing Challenge – Getting Users to Trust the Cloud
Organizations intending to move to cloud never lose the sight of the fact that it is they, who will still remain responsible for their own valuable data. Lack of common security standards and the ease of retrieving data if a change of supplier is required, are only making things worst. Customers will put sensitive data in cloud only when Cloud SPs can cost-effectively guarantee the same (if not better) level of security, than their own organization. Everyone understands that the Cloud SPs could attract, train & deploy much larger security resources & tools than most Cos would have internally. A lack of trust in cloud computing is slowing broader adoption of cloud services; hence, today it remains one of the most important marketing challenge. To address this, a new thinking in security and compliance is required and ultimately the cloud computing industry will have to establish its own standards because the business model is fundamentally different as is the way users will engage with services.

How Network as a Service (NaaS) will Drive Next Generation Content Data Delivery Operation and Cost Efficiencies
As Asia embraces cloud and mobile technologies, the demand for content and revenue opportunities continue to exponentially increase. However, Asia is a complex market and demand may shift from Australia one day to Indonesia the next and China the week following. The cost of connecting, building and operating data centers in all these countries are not practical. What if you could use the network to overcome these challenges by an on-demand and flexible allocation of bandwidth, routing of traffic, and provisioning compute and storage resources? Jim Fagan explains how Network as a Service will help create an elastic environment enabling customers to dynamically provision network, compute and storage resources through a fully-automated and scalable service delivery platform.
