Edge Asia brings the Most Transformative Opportunity of the Next Decade to Singapore
Alibaba, Cisco, Equinix, IBM, Red Hat, The UN just a few names to speak at Edge Asia 2019

SINGAPORE / TOKYO, Mar 21, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - Edge Asia powered by Datacloud will be in Singapore on April 11, bringing you the defining discussion the Edge, its importance to 5G, as well as addressing the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in implementing Edge services and networks in the APAC region.

With strong market drivers, the shift to Edge represents the most profound change that will impact possibly for decades to come. Early deployment is expected to achieve significant growth globally over the next 5 years with industry predictions of connections to 25 billion devices, and 50 billion installed or embedded sensors.

The convergence of new technologies and developments such as IoT, 5G, AI, autonomous cars and smart cities, connected things, microdatacenters and Edge facilities, enables new ways of analysing and managing data as well as increasing latency which existing infrastructure would not be able to handle.

As data is generated at ever more exponential rates, and globally moves us towards the age of Yottabyte, so compute processing power disperses across enterprises, and cloud resources shift closer to the user. Massive amounts of data draw compute in, away from the core, which is the Edge.

Welcome to Edge Asia, Powered by Datacloud.

Attendees will include executives from the cloud, edge, data centre, computing, IoT and data arena. They will gather in one location to attend the seminal discussion on this massive new ecosystem, addressing how infrastructure will be altered through the convergence of current and new technologies such as blockchain, AI, 5G, 4K, 8K, robotics, wearable tech and embedded sensors and their deployment.

Industry experts to debate the Edge in Singapore include:

- Jonathan Atkin, Managing Director - RBC Capital Markets
- Dean Bubley, Founder and Director - Disruptive Analysis
- Gordon Falconer, Chairman Advisory Board - UN United Smart Cities Group
- Iain Gillott, President - IGR
- Sunil Gupta, CTO - Communication and Media Industry Vertical, APAC - HPE
