KEYNOTE PANEL: HOW TO ENSURE BUSINESS CONTINUITY ACROSS THE CARIBBEAN? ASSESSING NETWORK RESILIENCE AND DISASTER RECOVERY PLANNING
In 2017, the hurricanes that affected several islands across the region caused considerable damage and the Caribbean is still recovering from the latest hurricane season. Hurricane Irma in particular, was one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean and its impact has caused catastrophic damage. Correspondingly, the impact on critical infrastructure caused continuous service disruption during several days, weeks and even months after the hurricanes hit the islands. In this context, reducing network vulnerability across the region is a priority for the wholesale telecommunications sector. This panel will assess network resilience across the Caribbean and provide a roadmap to facilitate business continuity.

COFFEE & NETWORKING BREAK
INSIGHT SESSION: EXAMINING THE SHIFT TOWARDS TRANSFORMATION: MEETING THE GROWING NETWORK DEMAND
With a growing demand for data-intensive content and with traffic that continues to increase across the Caribbean, the solutions that enable interconnection overland and undersea need to address the unique challenges associated with end-to-end networks. This session will explore how analytics and automation are changing the submarine networks industry.
HOW IS THE DEMAND FOR DATA CHANGING THE INDUSTRY DYNAMICS AND SHAPING INFRASTRUCTURE ACROSS THE CARIBBEAN?
Demand of Over-The-Top (OTT) applications and services is growing exponentially. This growth is placing traditional services under pressure. Streaming video content is igniting the demand for capacity, enhancements on network architecture, expansion of global submarine cable networks and increased cloud adoption. Furthermore, as the demand for content accelerates, key players across the region are reviewing their current infrastructure strategy to support OTT services. This panel will explore the rise of on demand content and its impact on current and future infrastructure needs.
INSIGHT SESSION: ENABLING DATA CENTRE RESILIENCY
The causes of damaging and expensive outages are changing, as loads become more distributed and end- to-end business services depend on more systems, more services and more collaboration. This is making it more challenging to anticipate and to manage out all the many causes of outages. In this presentation, Todd Traver of Uptime Institute discusses how to develop a systematic way of identifying and reducing these risks.
