As a leading global wholesale carrier, Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier handles 28 billion voice minutes per year and 3500 petabytes of IP throughput a month. The International Network Infrastructure unit has built a network that enables innovation and scale through close collaboration with its vendor NetNumber.

NetNumber provides the signaling ecosystem platform for modernizing the telco architecture and supporting the transition to digital business. Ulf Koester, head of the International Network Infrastructure of inter-carrier Voice and Signaling services at Deutsche Telekom, Technology & Innovations will join Kevin Peters, NetNumber President and CEO on stage. Mr. Koester is driving the transformation from legacy production environments to software-based and virtualized solutions of DT’s inter-carrier service hub platforms. Mr. Peters came out of retirement from AT&T to lead NetNumber.

As NetNumber Blue meets Deutsche Telekom Magenta, these two executives will lead an interactive dialogue on how to architect a scalable and virtualized network designed with simplification, automation, and use of customer and signaling data to enable intelligence at the forefront. The executives will discuss the capabilities needed for success today and in 5G, and how to build the right network foundation for innovation and growth while highlighting some mutually discovered “pitfalls” that carriers should avoid.
