On Tuesday Feb 2nd at 10AM EST we ran a Dangerous Demo TADSummit Revisited Part 2 with Canonical, Apidaze, and Telestax. You can view the session at the end of this weblog, or just click here. Since the first ever TADHack in Madrid 2014 year, Dangerous Demos have become an important core theme in both TADHack and TADSummit. Their purpose is to showcase just how far technology has come given its continued acceleration. The Dangerous Demo at TADSummit in November 2015 included open source billing, flexible messaging, location (GMLC) based services, authentication as a Service, USSD services, WiFi calling, Load testing/Monitoring, Open Source (Software Defined Radio) Radio Access Network – and much more. Virtually all telecom functions can now run in the cloud.
Its one of our longer Q&A sessions, but its well worth the time to understand how the technologies and companies in the Dangerous Demo are creating a revolution in telecoms.
The components of this dangerous demo are shown below. For Dangerous Demo Revisited Part 2 session we will be doing a deep-dive question and answer session with:
- Artur Tyloch of Canonical,
- Philippe Sultan of Apidaze, and
- Jean Deruelle of Telestax.
