The business environment in which teleport operators work is being turned upside by technology and market change. Their established businesses face disruption from new models of connectivity (GEO HTS, MEO and LEO), the rising domination of software over hardware, customer demands for seamless global service, and the opportunity to innovate up the value chain to meet new customer needs – if only they can bring the depth of technology knowledge and high-speed innovation required. Faced with these challenges, how are teleport operators in different market segments adapting? What market opportunities are they targeting and where are they investing their capital? What are their biggest obstacles to growth and the biggest threats to their survival?

This session aims to create a forum of which to present e-Health issues in the U.S., E.U., and Asia. The health care ecosystem is constantly changing with the development of new health care service delivery systems, services, and practices, and technical and policy infrastructure. e-Health represents a cross roads of technology and health care. There is significant potential in e-Health to fill the gap between urban and remote areas, and developed and developing countries. The advancement of e-Health has occurred in parallel in the U.S., E.U., and Asia but with unique regional approaches, challenges, and solutions.

e-Health, broadly defined as the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status, has been expected to improve cost, quality and access to healthcare simultaneously. There are more than 80 systematic reviews on the effectiveness of telemedicine and more than 20 of them reporting conclusively that telemedicine is effective in such areas as mental health, management of chronic diseases including diabetes, heart failure, and elderly care. However, in many countries, it has been reported that many e-Health programs have been started on a trial basis and not continued in large scale implementation. Contributing factors to the lack of sustainability include poor health care insurance reimbursement policies and payment for telehealth services and initial hesitation for upfront investment and change organizational culture and workflow.

The panel will present lessons learned, current policies and strategies from three distinct regions for the development and implementation of e-Health programs including national and international issues concerning e-Health and impacts of ICT.

At the 40th anniversary of PTC, perhaps it is time to have the first of its kind meeting among the thought leaders behind the few international conferences and journals that have dedicated their activities to discussion of telecommunication policy. The list includes ITS, TPRC, and ITU Kaleidoscope academic conferences, and ITU Journal: ICT Discoveries, and Telecommunication Policy journals.

In particular, this roundtable would accommodate representatives of these institutions to share their ideas and experiences on how to have more impact on telecommunications policy making in practice, and also to reflect on the development of these conferences and journals.

The topics to be covered include but not limited to the following:

• What role do conferences and journals play in telecommunication policy making?
• How can policy makers best communicate their challenges to the research community?
• How can they better serve as vehicles for providing perspectives/research outcomes to decision-makers?
• How could these institutions have more impact on policy outcome in practice?
• What are the best measures for the inclusion of policy makers and the industry?
• What could be done for more involvement from the academia side in the policy making process?

Concepts such as virtualization and software-defined infrastructure are foundational elements of cloud computing. Enterprise adoption of cloud computing is driving ‘as-a-service’ consumption models in all aspects of IT. So, it’s not surprising that these same concepts have found their way into the telecoms market. Instantaneous provisioning and dynamic bandwidth allocation are the holy grail of wide-area networking.To date however, provider revenues for SD-WAN services and associated revenues from SDN technology vendors remains relatively modest compared to traditional networking products and services. At the same time, analysts predict dramatic growth in SD-WAN services revenues. What are the technical challenges to realizing an SD-WAN future? What’s the business case for a service provider to make large investments in a technology that promises even lower prices? What options exists in the market, both in terms of the available technology and the services offered?

The satcom innovation wave is gathering steam globally. Once a conservative industry with change occurring over long cycles, the operator business is radically shifting, value chains are in a state of flux, and ground segment technology is evolving at a rapid pace. New investment, orbits, models and applications all promise to alter the satcom paradigm forever, and the broader telco community is taking notice. What then will the satcom market look like in 5 years? 10 years? Who wins and who loses in this new state of play? This interactive session will explore this question in detail and prognosticate on the landscape for satellite services in the Pacific.

This panel of thought leaders will discuss cybersecurity, privacy, telecom, law, business, and Hawaii. Hawaii plays a significant role for trans-pacific communications, faces unique challenges, and is also home to experts in all of these areas. Hawaii is hale (home) to PTC, as well as this annual conference which brings together telecom industry participants from all over the world, so it is only fitting to have this panel of local experts discuss the interrelation between these important topics.

Our country now relies upon data centers and fibre, and the constant, uninterrupted transfer and access to data. Almost every person is continually tethered to data streams and cloud data, and there are continuing attacks upon our privacy and cybersecurity from cybercriminals and even businesses seeking to learn more about our habits. Individuals face daunting threats and choices. Ordinary businesses face exponentially higher risks, because of the customer data they hold, intellectual property they have created, cybercrime risks, and regulatory and legal requirements. Telecom businesses face even higher risks, storing and transmitting data on behalf of governments, businesses, and individuals that are ripe targets for nation states and cybercriminals of all stripes. All of this means business and legal responsibilities to safeguard the data, and to properly address and investigate any compromises or breaches.

No longer can business, law, cybersecurity, and privacy be siloed into separate departments and considerations. This panel of local experts will help put it together for you.

Panelists:

  • Vincent Hoang, Chief Information Security Officer, Office of Enterprise Technology Services, State of Hawaiʻi, USA
  • Michael Miranda, Assistant Professor, Information Security , University of Hawaiʻi - West Oʻahu, USA

The Internet has grown from a concept in 1973 to a system covering about 50% of the world's population today and, on most metrics, it has expanded by 6 to 7 decimal orders of magnitude. It is rare for any system to scale to that extent. How and why has this been possible? What elements of the Internet architecture have permitted expansion in scale and function? What might we anticipate in the next 40 years? What will replace the Internet? What properties would we like to see that it does not now exhibit? What properties does it now have that we would like to change? Eliminate? What should we be paying close attention to in the near term (next 5 years)? These and other matters will be on the table for discussion and exploration as we contemplate bringing another 3.5 billion users onto the Internet in the next decade.
