Climbing the Executive Ladder as Women in Tech & Telecom
May 31, 2018 – 11:30 AM ET

The launch of JSA’s Women Speaking Initiative (WSI) has provided a new opportunity for women in leadership roles to share their voices on the telecom and tech speaking circuit. As a continuation of that initiative, this Virtual CEO Roundtable is dedicated to providing a platform for more tech and telecom executive women to be heard. This all-women panel, the first in a bi-annual series, will explore the challenges of climbing the executive ladder in a male-dominated industry as well as tips, tricks and guidance as they discuss their personal journeys, and pave the way for the next generation of women leaders to come.

AI & IoT: Network Automation and Service Design for Complex Networks
July 19, 2018 – 11:30 AM ET

As networks grow more complex, as more objects are added, tracked and optimized, and as security is tested and at times compromised, how can we best prepare ourselves for this onslaught of data hitting our network infrastructure? How can we serve up Network Analytics with AI to provide a useful cognitive network management, for an efficient, flexible and automated IoT network, including deployment and growth? This Roundtable of experts will talk real-life use cases on how large networks are tackling these growing IoT demands and provide educated tips based on real-world deployment and analysis.


The New Age of Financial Networks
August 10, 2018 – 11:30 AM ET

While cash is king, data is the emperor. The transformation of finance and technology is welcoming in a wealth of consumers who are educated, empowered, and ambitious as they scout for the best services and prices. Today’s financial networks (traders, firms, banks, financial exchanges, fintech startups) continue to focus on the importance of data and ongoing shift in consumer and business needs and expectations. It’s no surprise that competitive advantages are held by those financial institutions that can harness the power of technology and innovation in order to ensure convenience, efficiency and security for consumers and businesses. Non-traditional, digital companies are taking prime opportunities to offer banking options that go beyond long-established banking systems. This Virtual CEO Roundtable will explore how the changing finance and business models are affecting the world’s largest financial networks, and the banking industry as a whole.


TransPacific Connectivity Challenges & Opportunities
September 28, 2018 – 11:30 AM ET

A shared (and largely untapped) opportunity exists between American technology companies and their Asian counterparts. As tech companies pursue new business opportunities across the Pacific, high-speed interconnection and datacenter access between the continents is critical. And while Asia-PAC has bolstered its bandwidth resources with the completion of the Asia Pacific Gateway (APG) submarine cable, and the Southeast Asia-Japan Cable (SJC), there remains significant opportunities for growth. This roundtable will explore the burgeoning opportunities and challenges for TransPacific cable builders, datacenter operators, OTTs and more.
