AWS Partner Expo & Lightning Talks
Modernizing defense logistics with private 5G
Deepak Das, PhD, VP of Solutions, Federated Wireless 
Learn how the U.S. Department of Defense is using private wireless to enable its 5G smart warehouse testbed at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia. The deployment supports 5G-enabled IoT applications for use cases like robotics, barcode scanning, and holographic augmented and virtual reality. This successful launch serves as a reference architecture in a larger multi-year initiative to test, refine, and validate emerging 5G-enabled technologies. This session zooms in on how smart warehouses and smart manufacturing use cases are made possible by secure, ultra-reliable, low-latency, private wireless.
Operating anything as a service: Offerings and new business models
Andrew Thomson, SVP of Digital Platforms, Beyond by BearingPoint
What do a global cloud provider, an enterprise telecom operator, a digital-attacker telco brand, a mobility services provider, a global IoT connectivity provider, a global IT kit provider, a wholesale telecom provider, and a utility multi-services provider have in common? They are all using the same Infonova Digital Business Platform as a cloud service on AWS—but for different purposes. Different industries often require different business models but consistently want rapid onboarding and end-to-end business processing, where every functionality is available via the API. In this session, learn how the Infonova Digital Business Platform delivers these functionalities while also running marketplaces for Industry 4.0 and smart anything as a service.

Simple, secure & scalable: Mitigating risks in the hybrid cloud enterprise
Yusuf Fidvi, Senior Solutions Architect, Versa Networks
As enterprises embrace largescale hybrid cloud architectures as part of their digital transformation journey, traditional security practices can leave businesses exposed to a variety of risks. The cloud security model is designed to be a shared responsibility model, which can lead to blind spots in applications, users, devices, things, and infrastructure visibility if not distributed properly. Additionally, cloud engineers and day 2 operations teams can be challenged by the lack of intelligent application-aware networking within the cloud. In this session, Versa, Verizon, and AWS present a unified experience that delivers comprehensive, enterprise-grade security with Zero Trust architecture, optimal application experience, and data privacy.
