Building on the tremendous momentum generated at MWC-Barcelona a few months ago, Cisco is the Diamond sponsor for the Big 5G Event May 6-8 in Denver, CO.  This is a great opportunity to learn about the Cisco 5G architecture, how it is being implemented today, and to learn about some new cloud-native solutions that are uniquely Cisco as they harness our cloud, network, security and enterprise expertise.

The Big 5G Event affords opportunities to listen to some of the industry’s leaders and Cisco has multiple speakers at this event.

Ian Campbell, CTO and Distinguished Engineer, will be keynote speaker on the topic of Monetizing the Instant Network – The role of automation, cloud, segment routing, core, policy, and SON 2.0 in 5G success. In addition, Ian will participate on the Keynote Panel discussing Critical Next Steps in Deploying 5G.

Aeneas Dodd-Noble, Principal Engineer and Architect will participate on two panels during the event: one on 5G services in a multi-cloud world, and one on Public cloud for 5G Network Functions.

Michael Dennis, Business Development Manager for Cisco Umbrella Security, will participate on a panel discussing The Truth about AI and Security.

Cisco Umbrella is a cloud security platform that provides the first line of defense against threats on the internet wherever users go. And because it’s built into the foundation of the internet and delivered from the cloud, Umbrella is the simplest security product to deploy, delivering powerful, effective protection.
