Keynote: Unleashing the Power of 5G MEC through Open Source Collaboration - Bill Ren, Chief Open Source Liaison Officer & General Manager, ICT Infrastructure Open Source, Huawei Technologies
To unleash productive forces relies on new relations of production. How do we cultivate new growth opportunities on the new network infrastructure? Edge computing provides a possible solution to us, which is feasible.

In this presentation, we will show that Edge computing presents huge opportunities for carriers and the ICT industry. New relations of production must be established to unleash the new productive forces of "5G + edge". We need to promote edge computing through open source and build relations of production that are beneficial for all. New relations of production includes four aspects, New collaboration way, new development, new ecosystem and New transaction mode.

The EdgeGallery open-source platform aims to build de facto standards for the 5G edge computing architecture and capability openness in open-source mode, reducing the threshold of bringing enterprise applications onboard the industry platform for 5G edge computing.

Keynote: Accelerating the Journey to Cloud-native Telco and Effortless 5G and Edge - Prajakta Joshi, Product Management Lead, Cloud Networking, Telco and Edge, Google
As an industry, we have three significant opportunities ahead of us: First is helping telcos transform their business by enabling them to become a true telco cloud for their IT, network and services. The second major opportunity is around delivering value to enterprises with 5G/4G edge computing solutions and 5G as a business services platform, thereby creating new revenue streams for Telcos, Cloud providers, and the broader ecosystem. The third one is as much an opportunity as a necessity to enable the first two - it’s about breaking down the silos that have existed between the network and services platforms, paradigms, service orchestration, automation and more used by telcos and public cloud providers, to unlock seamless delivery of services across a global distributed edge and cloud. Join Prajakta as she explores how we as an industry can accelerate the journey to cloud-native Telco, seamless Telco and public cloud collaboration and effortless 5G and Edge as a business services platform.
