Panel discussion: The era of land and sea convergence

  • How are today’s demands for connectivity, resiliency and 24/7 availability affecting the way we build and locate data centres?
    • Where are the new data hubs or regional hubs of connectivity that are being developed today?
  • How does this affect the way today’s networks are designed and deployed?
    • How are technologies such as SDN changing the way bandwidth is consumed and in turn co-location pricing models?
    • What are the physical and/or commercial constraints of extending the submarine network further inland?
  • How can the subsea cable owners and data centre operators work cohesively in facilitating the new digital economy?
    • What are the foreseeable challenges (e.g. regulatory) and how can they be overcome?
