The ever-growing wave of emerging and disruptive technologies is greatly impacting global connectivity.  As we witness the rapid deployment of 5G networks worldwide and the emergence of 6G on the horizon, network management continues to play a vital role in empowering and supporting mobile/wireless networks, the Internet of Things (IoT), metaverse applications, smart cities, autonomous vehicles, healthcare, and Digital Twins for networks. Exciting advancements like generative AI and large language models (LLMs) are reshaping the landscape of operations and management for systems, networks, and services. These technologies bring both challenges and opportunities for managing global connectivity.

Our event will be hosted at the world-class Hilton Hawaiian Village, located on the beautiful Waikiki beach. This exquisite venue offers a wonderful opportunity for professionals and their families to experience the mesmerizing Hawaiian Islands.
