CEO Roundtable 3
Best Practices for Partnerships in Next Gen Network Infrastructure

2:00 PM – 3:10 PM

According to the International Monetary Fund, the five largest tech companies — Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Alphabet and Apple — are collectively worth more than the entire economy of the United Kingdom. The rate at which these organizations are building hyperscale data centers and investing in new transoceanic subsea cable systems indicates their meteoric growth will only continue into the foreseeable future, requiring more and more capacity. In a world driven by content, how can data center, terrestrial and subsea infrastructure providers partner with these large tech companies to keep pace with the ever-growing end-user demand for content and cloud services? Our panel will identify the top 3-5 ways these partners can collaborate in the next 12 months, considering the current and future outlook of capacity demand, as well as the benefits, opportunities and inevitable challenges ahead.
