ONE Summit 2022
ONE Summit is the ONE networking technology event connecting Access, Edge, Core and Cloud. It brings together technical and business decision makers for in-depth, interactive conversations around cutting-edge innovations and the operational support necessary to leverage them.
Newly revamped post-pandemic, ONE Summit’s focus is to enable interactive, real-world conversations on the evolution of technology in the distributed networking space. From Communications Service Providers to Government and civil infrastructure, from Retail to the leaders of Industry 4.0, you will be able to collaborate on innovations to truly support your digital transformation.
Inspired by the impact of integration efforts like 5G Super Blueprint, ONE Summit fosters collaborative discussion required to truly scale software for 5G, IoT, the enterprise, and beyond.
Top 5 reasons to speak at ONE Summit:
1) Collaborate with thought leaders from across a growing global ecosystem.
ONE Summit enables the technical and business collaboration necessary to shape the future of open networking and edge computing. The free exchange and presentation of ideas is crucial for the growth of all open source projects and their continued ability to innovate.
2) Immerse yourself in innovative technologies such as 5G, Open RAN, IoT, Enterprise, Cloud Native and more.
Learn about and build on on the successes of Linux Foundation networking & edge project communities, with collaboration across LF Networking, LF Edge, O-RAN- SC, Magma, CNCF, LF AI & Data, and more, to enable attendees to visualize and build their new networking stacks.
3) Learn from your peers across industry verticals solving common challenges.
Networking decision makers gather to address architectural and technical issues, and business use case needs. ONE Summit provides a forum where solutions, best practices, use cases and more – based on open source projects under the Linux Foundation Networking and across the industry– can be shared with the global ecosystem.
4) Unleash the power of open. In a market now built on open source, this is critical.
Virtually all industries have embraced open source in their operations. Collaboration among industry peers is what makes the use of open source in business and the related business models possible.
5) Demonstrate your leadership.
ONE Summit attendees come from all across a growing ecosystem of enterprises, governments, global service providers (including telcos, enterprises, government, global service providers and cloud). With a targeted focus on architects and technical decision makers, ONE Summit is a great place to get your message out
