How can the major web players deliver low latency services? Large international data centres have supported the huge growth of services which are accessed across the public Internet however there’s a price to pay for large centralised facilities, that price is higher network latency. What technical solutions exist for web scale players to reduce network latency and how can they work cooperatively with network operators to deliver low latency services for consumer and enterprise markets? This session will explore these questions and discuss the technical integration options for mass market low latency services such as gaming, augmented reality and virtual reality.

Now go build @the edge
Learn about how you can build solutions at the edge with AWS. The presentation covers different architectural scenarios and an overview of AWS Wavelength, a service that allows you to deploy applications at the edge of a mobile carrier’s 5G network. By combining the benefits of 5G, such as high bandwidth and low latency, with the ability to use AWS tools and services developers are familiar with, you’re able to build next generation edge applications quickly and easily.

Hyperscalers, 5G and the edge
Microsoft has a defined set of services and functions intended for reducing latency and with 5G enabling an explosion in use cases, hyperscalers can provide huge value. This talk will cover the technologies we can use for bringing added value from the cloud to the edge and make those use cases possible (Edge ML, DevOps, Containers...) and the use cases Microsoft are working on now.
