We have more new TADSummit sponsors and partners! Welcoming Genband Kandy and Partitionware! The 2017 agenda is amazing, check out the latest agenda which we will regularly update in the coming month. TADSummit is the only place to experience live world-first demonstrations, industry defining thought-leadership, and practice-based experience in Programmable Telecoms. TADSummit is sponsored by the companies leading telecom innovation, companies that live or die by delivering value to their customers through telecoms innovation.
Attending in person is best for networking and understanding in detail the demos and presentations; however, we also stream live and record the event so you can take part remotely or review what you missed later.
Highlighting a few aspects of the agenda:
Multiple live world-first demonstrations across the spectrum of programmable telecoms
Innovation Showcase led by Michael Lazar, VP Telecom, DataArt. Including multiple A2P / bot showcases across financial services and healthcare verticals using the sponsors’ platforms, e.g. tyntec; achieving Amazon and Google cloud economics with Immutable Diskless Compute Pool for zero time provisioning; blockchain; VNF certification; and much more.
James Body, Telet Research, the MONEH Innovation Showcase is aimed at fundamentally changing what it means to be a mobile network operator. Its a cloud based cellular core that supports Multi Operator Neutral Host (MONEH) operation. This means that any privately owned Radio Access Network with embedded Evolved Packet Core (EPC) will be able to accept inbound roaming traffic from other mobile network users. Programmable Telecoms is changing every aspect of our industry.
We’ll have lots of other live demos using programmable telecoms including: TapToSpeak for remote Q&A during the event (no conference app just a URL); exo.expert an insurance industry drone and winner of the innovation award by the French government department of FinTec; and more demos being finalized.

Ed will share how MetTel uses Telestax’s RestcommOne to deliver on their approach.
