Coffee & Networking Break
Discovering the Untapped Potential in Terrestrial & Subsea Routes in Eurasia
Turkey has long been established as a gateway between Asia and Europe, and Istanbul specifically as a hub for telecoms, due to its strategic geographic location for terrestrial and subsea cable routes. It also features heavily in the Digital Silk Road. Eurasia’s strength is central land mass and this offers the potential for diversified routes, both terrestrial and subsea. This session will assess the potential for new routes across the region.
• In the constant quest for low latency, what are the potential alternative routes?
• Are network upgrades necessary, or being implemented, to maintain a competitive stance in the region?
• Is it possible to weigh up the benefits of subsea vs terrestrial cables?
• What is the impact of Caspian Sea and Black Sea cable systems on terrestrial networks?
• What is the impact of Caspian Sea and Black Sea cable systems on subsea cable networks e.g. SEA-ME-WE5?

Capacity Eurasia Reception
Every Cloud Does not have an Impenetrable Lining: Evaluating Cyber Security for Data Centres and Cloud Service Providers
With exponential growth in demand for connectivity, the need for developments in cyber security has arguably been overlooked. This is a particular concern for data centres and cloud service providers, which hold extremely valuable data on behalf of a wide range of organisations, with enormous implications if a secure network is breached. However, in the age of expanded service offerings, perhaps this is an opportunity not to be missed.
• What are the specific cyber security challenges affecting data centres and cloud service providers?
• What defence mechanisms are being put in place?
• How could AI and machine learning improve companies’ defence mechanisms to become more secure in the face of a cyber-attack?
• How can enterprises and customers be educated about the risks, as a precautionary measure?
• What are the risks and opportunities attached to decentralisation of data to the edge?

• How are OTTs adapting to operators development of OTT services to remain competitive?

• What are the benefits of developing localised content, such as effect on capacity demand?
• How do censorship and regulations apply when content leaves Turkey?
