Telecom Council members’ interest in Cloud Computing at the moment is not like many current discussions on the topic. Our members are interested in building clouds and turning cloud computing into a strategic business. This meeting will not focus on Cloud apps, Cloud consumer services, and Cloud processing.
Instead, we will focus on how to build the cloud from a network operator's perspective:
- What hardware, technologies, and new architectures are needed to build, manage, and maintain a Cloud?
- What software and technologies are needed in the server farms that provide Cloud services?
- What are the new OSS and BSS requirements?
- What do network operators and other Cloud service providers need in terms of new technologies from Silicon Valley?
- Who builds the cloud, provides the bandwidth, the QoS, the MIPS?
Cloud computing is a very important trend, and there is no doubt about its increasing role in the future. And make no mistake: We think that Cloud Apps are important, cool, interesting, and well-worthy of discussion. But the topic of 'Cloud' needs to be discussed across the board, and the Telecom Council is the perfect forum to focus on the companies that build the cloud, not just those apps that ride on it.
Join us for this unique take on this hot topic. This meeting crosses all 5 Telecom Council Forum for a ½ day meeting to put carriers, hardware manufacturers, and solutions providers on the same page. We can take up to 150 participants. This meeting is free for Telecom Council members, and $200 for non-members.
