Open caching: From walk to run

A decade ago, Open Caching didn’t exist. Today, it’s reached a mature state and is being widely adopted. What’s next for this transformative conduit? What are the impacts on the future of streaming? What would be considered as the ultimate success in terms of adoption and scale? What should we do collaboratively as an eco-system in order to accomplish it? Facilitator: Alon Maor

Better than broadcast: Next-level live streaming

We explore key findings from our new Live Streaming Survey Report and ask ourselves how do content publishers get enough capacity at high QoE for to deliver massive events in a world where live streaming is becoming mainstream? And how do service providers diffuse the bursts of traffic while raising the standard of experience beyond what we’ve known from broadcast? Facilitator: Lisa Aussieker

Mutual momentum: The rewards of a properly aligned ecosystem

Content delivery at scale is challenging – can a better aligned ecosystem take some of the obstacles away? If quality of costumer experience becomes a mutual focus, how might Service providers and Content Providers collaborate so that content delivery flows free of the siloes we have today? What additional benefits does an aligned ecosystem bring? Facilitator: Jesper Knutsson

Tapping the full potential of the carrier edge

Next-gen experiences are about to become current-gen. While the exact form is still taking shape, we know that delivery of interactive, immersive media at scale will require both technical and business model innovations across the ecosystem. In this session we’ll confront our visions of how, together, we can develop and deploy these capabilities, create and capture value, …and the right timing for doing so. Facilitator: Theoodore Tzenevelekis

Design theory: Roadmap to the future of the Edge

Now that we have captured the view of what is next for the Carrier Edge, this session will allow us exploratory time to draft a pragmatic plan that will take us there. Open Caching, itself, began as a Content Delivery best practice guideline that evolved into a transformative ecosystem plan – what now will be the defining principles and tools for the Carrier Edge evolution?
