News From Day 1 of Ribbon Perspectives19 #rbbnp19

April 29, 2019

Ribbon Communications just kicked off day one of Perspectives19 and there is a tone of enthusiasm and optimism so far. We sat in a channel session earlier that was quite good - lots of stats and great networking. John Marcurio Senior Vice President Global Channel Marketing did a great job hosting the session.



We heard a rumor that Metaswitch will merge with Ribbon tomorrow - this comes on the heels of the companies deciding to cease patent litigation four days ago.

We will see what happens.

We also ran into Rich Shockey, Chairman of the Board of Directors SIP Forum - he explained tomorrow the House will vote on implementing STIR/SHAKEN to eliminate robocalls.



Here is a summary from the Tansnexus website - Great work from CEO Jim Dalton and his team:

STIR/SHAKEN uses digital certificates, based on common public key cryptography techniques, to ensure the calling number of a telephone call is secure. In simple terms, each telephone service provider obtains their digital certificate from a certificate authority who is trusted by other telephone service providers.

Thanks to your feedback, we have been building ITEXPO into the most comprehensive business tech event around focusing on communications and IT.



First off, besides the ITEXPO Conference Program, here are some of the collocated events you should be aware of

Smart contacts could be the hidden gem in this tech as they can allow truly decentralized marketplaces to perform trust-based transactions. In other words - a smart contract could act as an intelligent agent - paying one party from another based upon preset conditions.

Attendees tell us they love this event because it has all the right players to learn about the present and future of the market.



To get a sense of what it will be like - we encourage you to read our recent interviews with some of the speakers.

Randy Van Buren, Solutions Engineer, Nokia will be a panelist in the “5G General Session - Keeping Connected: From 5G to Zigbee."

Here is an excerpt of the interview:

What will be some key points you plan to hit in your session?
Key points for my session will be implementation of identity of networks, data access paths, endpoint credentials as well as subscription / accounting are now opened up from the legacy cellular world of being defined by carriers toward the IT-perspective of letting an enterprise, application, and manufactured determining the option that suits their definition. The carriers will be required to provide the flexibility of provisioning, mapping, and freeform storage, transport, as well as billing.

What new insights can attendees expect to take home from your session?
Insights to be gained will be the pressure on carriers to move away from traditional SIM cards and their associated infrastructure toward eSIM and other forms of trust sources that are software-based instead of soldered into hardware.

One of our great keynoters is Ricardo Prada, UX Director at Google, where he directs broad, multidisciplinary teams of scientists and designers, adapting future technologies to human needs and capabilities.
