Technology Trends for 2020 and Beyond

January 06, 2020

The coming year will be a pivotal one for advances in network technology. The rollout of 5G technology, for example, is expected to hit $2.7 trillion by the end of 2020, according to ‘Financing the Future of 5G’, an October 2019 report by global financing firm Greensill. A significant amount of that spend will go toward Internet of Things (IoT) integration, with $585 billion geared to 5G implementation on IoT hardware and $469 billion for IoT services.

Staying ahead of the network technology curve might be difficult, but it’s critical to meeting marketplace needs, serving customers, and maintaining agility and productivity in an increasingly competitive environment.

In this webinar, we explore the trends that will impact your network needs in the coming year and moving forward, including:

  • IoT and IoT use cases

  • Cloud connectivity in a multi-cloud world (WAN Exchange, direct cloud connectivity, etc.)

  • The impact of multimedia

  • WiFi6, 5G, and the future of gigabit wireless

  • The evolution of SD-WAN

  • Edge computing and WAN edge infrastructure

  • NFV and network virtualization

  • Software-based network automation

  • The "new” branch office (pop-up branches, micro branches,) and other trends that affect and power network performance.


Our panelists include:

  • Johna Till Johnson is CEO and senior founding partner of Nemertes Research, where she sets research direction and works with strategic clients.

  • Jody Hagemann is Senior Director, Project Management at Comcast Business.
