The panel consisted of Erik Hoving, CTO, KPN Group; Haitham Abdulrazzak, CTO, Etisalat; Kerstin Günther, SVP, Technology Europe, Deutsche Telekom; Günther Ottendorfer, CTO, Telekom Austria Group and Yousef Abu-Mutaw, CTO, Zain Jordan. In addition to 5G, hot topics discussed were: VoLTE, LTE Roaming, Handling Mobile Data, Signaling, LTE Evolution and HetNets, to name only a few.

At the event, the LTE World Series was on-hand to interview many of the key speakers, such as Erik Hoving, CTO, KPN Group; Günther Ottendorfer, CTO, Telekom Austria Group; and Paul Ceely, Head of Network, EE, and these are now available to view on the LTE World Series YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/LTEWorldSeries.

The main conference boasted a host of top speakers from some of the industry's best recognised brands including: Telekom Austria Group, Vodafone Netherlands, Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Zain Jordan, KPN Group, SK Telecom, Telkom Mobile, Bouygues Telecom and du. Also present were the leading solution providers including: Huawei, Oracle, Samsung, Alcatel Lucent, Mediatek, ZTE, F5, Juniper Networks, NEC and many more.

Günther Ottendorfer, CTO of the Telekom Austria Group, took part in a fireside chat with Ovum's Chief Research Officer, Mark Newman, where he shared his views on the results from the recent frequency auction in Austria. He also discussed how these results will impact the future development of LTE in Austria as well as discussing Telekom Austria's strategy for dealing with the huge data growth and peak demand via LTE.

The events free expo summits proved to be a major hit, with five tracks running throughout the event.

In addition, to celebrate the events 10th anniversary, the organizers hosted a special drinks reception which enabled attendees to network with some of the industry's elite.

Supporting words from some of the events attendees:
"Ten years is a chunk of time in the lifecycle of an event that either ends as having outlived its usefulness, or as one that has leveraged its learning and maturity to offer a genuinely valuable experience. Informa's LTE World Summit is definitely an event of the latter category. Each year it has improved in the quality of attendees, the level of speakers and presentations, and even in its range of marketing services to sponsors. LTE World Summit has become as valuable to F5 as a core network vendor as the Mobile World Congress. Many thanks to the very professional Informa team."- Susan Becker, Product Marketing Director of the Diameter Signaling solution, F5 Networks

"Great opportunity to hear industry trends while networking."- Benoit Widermann, Marketing Manager, Belgacom

"Good overview of what's happening in the world of LTE." - Mark Caines, Director of Spectrum Policy, Ofcom

"A great event with great networking opportunities." - Minoo Abedi, St. Analyst, T-Mobile Netherlands

"Really good event to exchange about network evolution and to share experiences." - Vanesa Tornero Caballero, Orange

"By the far the best networking and influencing event for the global LTE industry, never to be missed." - Alan Hadden, Chair, GSA

"An interesting medley of various ecosystems from the mobile world, explaining various technology advancements and expressing different views, opinions and suggestions." - Zahid Ghadialy, Managing Director/CTO, eXplano Tech Limited

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
