    media experiences (virtual reality/augmented reality gaming) for
    consumers anywhere, without being tethered to a wired network. See how
    Hollywood is embracing the power of Intel processing and software and
    the visual cloud to bring its latest films to life.
  • 5G’s gigabit speeds, transformed networks and edge computing augmented
    by new computer vision and AI technologies will give retailers new
    capabilities to efficiently enable retail deployments in virtually any
    location without the expense of a wired infrastructure.
  • See the latest Intel partner ecosystem offerings in network, edge,
    vRAN and base station technology – enabled by Intel® Xeon® Scalable
    processors, Intel® FPGAs, Intel Atom® processors, and Intel
    connectivity products.


The Edge Computing Opportunity: Intelligent and Distributed

When: Feb. 25, 3:45-5 p.m. CET

Where: Hall 4, Auditorium 5

Sandra Rivera, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the
Network Platforms Group, joins other industry leaders as they discuss
the opportunities in the intelligent and distributed edge. With the huge
market potential and opportunity presented by 5G, carriers are
undergoing a massive network infrastructure transformation to ensure
that delivery and expectations are met. Architecting greater computing
power at the edge of a network will become a key enabler for low-latency
applications. While the centralized cloud will still be a vital
component, edge computing will be deployed closer to the endpoints,
creating new value for customers. This session will provide insights
into emerging edge computing models and concepts and highlight the
immense opportunity this technology will bring. Fellow panelists include:

  • Jochen Heidl, VP Automotive, Senior Solutions Integration Architect,
  • Jason Hoffman, CEO, MobiledgeX*
  • Yousef Khalidi, Corporate VP, Product Management, MS Azure*
  • Patrick Chomet, EVP, Samsung*
  • Patrick Lopez, VP Networks Innovation, Telefónica*
  • Shekar Ayyar, EVP, Strategy and Corporate Development and GM, Telco
    NFV Group, VMware*

Panel: AI at the Edge versus in the Cloud

When: Feb. 27, 3-4 p.m. CET

Where: Hall 4, Auditorium 5

Asha Keddy, Intel vice president in the Technology, Systems Architecture
& Client Group and general manager of Next Generation and Standards,
will join a panel session to debate the prospects and use cases for
artificial intelligence at the edge versus in the cloud, offering vital
insight for operators who are developing implementation models. Fellow
panelists include:

  • Anirudh Koul, Head of AI & Research, Aria*
  • Tom Wilson, VP Automotive, Graphcore*
  • Rashmi Misra, GM, AI Platforms, Business Development, Microsoft*
  • Adam West, Head of Marketing, Satalia*

5G Cloud XR Summit

When: Feb. 27, 4-6 p.m. CET

Where: Hall 4, Auditorium 4

manager of the 5G Infrastructure Division in the Network Platforms
Group, is one of several experts from companies including China Mobile*,
Deutsche Telekom* and HTC* who will discuss and share case studies and
best practices across the cloud continuum. Specifically, how cloud-based
technologies will deliver superior experiences in augmented reality,
virtual reality, mixed reality and simulated reality as well as other
variations, revolutionizing the consumption of content in both the
consumer and the enterprise sectors.

Panel: Media and Entertainment Tips and Tricks for 5G and the Network

When: Feb. 28, 11:15 a.m.–12:15 p.m. CET

Where: Hall 4, Auditorium 2

Lynn Comp, Intel vice president in the Network Platforms Group and
general manager of the Visual Cloud Division, joins a panel to discuss
why future digital success for media and entertainment companies will
only be realized by ubiquitous 5G connectivity and edge computing. The
power of the network and intelligence at the edge will unlock new
services, maximize infrastructure efficiencies and deliver on the
promise of 5G. Fellow panelists include:

  • Olivier Avaro, CEO, Blacknut*
  • Jamie Hindhaugh, COO, BT Sport*
