As the number of connected devices per household grows, network reliability needs to grow as well. 10G puts us on a path toward a highly reliable network that will support our customers’ needs at home and at work.

Security
A Safe and Secure Connected Future
As our daily lives become more dependent on the network, the need for security and safety becomes critical. 10G will help provide a safe and secure connected future. Increasingly complex home and business networks will be protected by user-friendly network management systems capable of isolating and resolving security threats with minimal customer involvement.

Speed

We’ll start the day with a couple of introductory sessions that will give you a bird’s eye view of how emerging technologies in all these different areas will begin to intersect and eventually transform the way we interact with the world. Pick a track and dive deeper to address real-world problems in the area that’s most relevant to you.

Live
This track is designed to explore the technologies that will directly impact the quality of human life in the future, including what we eat, where we live, what we drive and so on. Topics will include advancements in personal healthcare and the food industry, “smart” city infrastructure, biohacking, climate solutions and many more.

Work
Join this track to explore how industries and businesses can provide a better, safer, healthier and more mentally stimulating working environment that ignites creativity and motivates employees to succeed. Let’s discuss the future of innovation, 5-hour workday and explore the next wave of “office” tools, including holographic and immersive technologies, that can change when, where and how we work.

Learn
Education is one area where technology can have a profound impact on future generations. It can enable unique and truly immersive learning experiences that increase retention and creativity and help us absorb new information faster. Let’s think about how these tools can help improve our education system starting from kindergarten all the way to college and beyond.

Play
Video gaming, sports and fitness have already grown into multi-billion-dollar industries, providing a much needed break from our increasingly hectic lives. But where will we go next? Will VR/AR technologies take our entertainment experiences to a whole new level? Learn about new innovations and explore all the exciting possibilities the future of entertainment holds.
