2024 Highlights

"The capabilities of 5G as it continues to evolve, paired with other emerging technologies that stc has already adopted such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and IoT, will unlock and help us to transform our customers’ experiences..." Haithem M. Alfaraj CTO, stc
Future Net World has probably been one of the best industry events I've been to in recent years. We obsess about architecture and technology, that's not our problem & this event focuses on the exact opposite of that: designing the operations and the automation that then the technology should fit into. I think this is where change starts for sure. Geoff Hollingworth CMO, Rakuten Symphony
Automation will be part of all use cases that come to the network, and our key focus is on service assurance & network healing Hassan El Chami CTO, Ooredoo Kuwait
It's been really, really productive. A lot of very open, honest conversations around what needs to happen next. It's way beyond the honesty that you get in the regular trade show. Niall Norton Division President and General Manager of Amdocs Networks, Amdocs
Automation is a very serious aspect for us to maximise, we’ve infused AI in different layers of architecture & launched different services based on AI & Machine Learning Jamal Sahyoun Vice President Technology Architecture, Etisalat UAE
I have been really impressed by the participation at the event, I have been impressed with the level of contribution and extremely interesting presentations and panels during the two days Domenico Convertino OSS Worldwide Leader, HPE Communications and Media Solutions
