How does 5G and cloud computing change the world?
In this episode, host Matt Roberts of Amdocs sits down with his next three guests at the Las Vegas Convention Center MWC 2022. First, he speaks with Dan Thygesen, the SVP and General Manager of Wholesale and Platform Operations at T-Mobile and Emil Liedtke, the Senior Director of Operations at T-Mobile.
“In the near future, there's going to be a lot of things that people are going to design and want to bring to market that are based on this really unique and strong and durable 5G core that they didn't have an opportunity to think about in the past because that that service method wasn't really there yet.”
Together, Matt, Dan and Emil discuss T-Mobile’s position in the race to 5G, the importance of collaboration and ecosystems as tech continues to evolve, and how new technologies could potentially help to solve some of the biggest challenges humanity is facing right now. Next, Matt sits down with Ishwar Parulkar, Chief Technologist for Telecom and Edge Cloud at Amazon Web Services (AWS).
“We are suddenly finding ourselves in a position to enable that disruption and accelerate that disruption – whether it be purely by access to this amazing 5G network, where we have and will continue to really lead there."
Ishwar shares his perspective on a recent innovation that has made a profound impact on his own life and the world around him, why he’s excited about new 5G-driven use cases, and how he is shaping his strategy for the next 12 months in his particular domain at AWS.
"The cloud was not ready for some of the telecommunication workloads, and we have made it get to that level so that we can run network functions at the scale and reliability performance that's required to really host networks. So we've done that journey.”
