Agenda

The WAN Summit London agenda is comprised of five elements: keynote addreses, panel discussions, enterprise case studies and the knowledge exchange with the audience. Here's a preview of what we have in store for each of these categories in London.

Keynotes: Each day of the WAN Summit London begins with a keynote address from carriers that look at the big picture of what is ahead of the WAN. 

Panels: Our panels feature a mix of representatives to foster rich debate and discussion about topics such as moving to a hybrid WAN, how Unified Communications and OTT services impact the WAN and delivering the cloud to end users. 

Case Studies: Corporate network managers take the stage in our case studies to discuss recent WAN projects they've undertaken, the challenges faced and the lessons to keep in mind for your own network redesign. 

Knowledge Exchange: This is your chance as a member of the audience to explore questions raised by the conference in-depth. Break out into small groups that address the specific issues you're most interested in, offering both peer-to-peer exchange and expert guidance. 

Networking: Coffee breaks, lunches and after event drinks offer dedicated opportunities for meaningful interaction between enterprise networking peers or with service providers and vendors. 

 

“I was surprised by the broad mix of presenters and attendees in terms of the kinds of companies and skill sets represented. I caught up on some industry trends I’d been a bit behind on, and this will help me in customer interactions going forward.”

Vlad Sinayuk, China Telecom Americas
