The Second Global Future Network Development Summit will be held in Jiangning, Nanjing from May 11 to 12. With the theme of "Innovation Ushers Future", the summit will hold ten sub-forums to share such topics as future network and technology innovation, digital economy, application innovation, cyberspace security and cultural innovation. In-depth discussions on major topics will be carried out, including hot topics of future network technology development, challenges and opportunities that technology generates, and its profound influences on the industry.

The Second Global Future Network Development Summit gathers a large amount of important guests. Over a hundred experts, scholars and well-known figures from nearly 10 countries in the network sector are invited to attend this summit, including Academicians of the Royal Academy of engineering, Academicians of the Royal Society of Canada, and Academicians of The Academy of Europe, and Paul Vixie, Architect of Domain Name, as well as leading experts like Liu Yunjie, “Father of China’s Internet”; Guests invited also include leaders of the key players (global telecom operators, famous network equipment manufacturers, well-known internet enterprises, top-notch academic institutes and international organizations) in the industry, such as Alex Sinclair, GSMA CTO, Abdurazak Mudesir, Vice President of Deutsche Telekom Group, and Hong Beom Jeon, Executive Vice President of Korea Telecom. They’ve engaged in the network sector for many years and enjoyed great reputation, featuring outstanding views or research achievements in industry development and technology innovation.




For instance, earlier this year, GSMA's CTO Alex Sinclair talked about the trend of the future network development. He believed 2018 would see the rapid expansion of the mobile IoT network and mobile IoT initiative would encourage the market to use license low-power WAN (LPWA). At present, this initiative is developing with a sound momentum as many operators worldwide have introduced commercial deployment and hundreds of applications and solutions. Being more flexible, secure, cost-effective, and applicable to all scenarios, those advantageous solutions have been recognized by the market. In the near future, more operators will join this initiative.



As mobile IoT develops at a tremendous pace and other industries experience rapid digitization, networking and intelligence, cyber security threats ensued are to permeate in more areas. Where the network goes, cyber security problems occur. Paul Vixie - the Architect of Domain Name - once commented on cyber security to the effect that "the unknown threat is a huge challenge to the global Internet and the biggest obstacle to cyber security is the unconstrained freedom in innovation. Each innovation brings more types of connected devices and cheaper prices. A thin cable or WiFi signal airborne can be master keys so that sneaky doers can sneak into the Internet equipment easily to spy on others’ lives and control production. New equipment (innovations) unlimitedly and constantly emerges, posing a hidden threat for the cyber security. The unregulated innovations expose network risks. Cyber security issues exist in various fields."

Indeed, the cyber security has become an urgent challenge to be addressed in the global network field. Speaking of the network and information security, we have to mention a major breakthrough in this field made by Liu Yunjie who is the academician of China Academy of Engineering. As an important founder of Chinanet, academician Liu Yunjie has been hailed as "The Father of China's Internet." He was also named one of the world's 50 digital heroes by American's Time, and has a significant influence on the Internet at home and abroad. Under the leadership of academician Liu Yunjie, the Institute has developed a domestic network architecture, "self-circulation system", after years of technical research and development,  and mitigated the risk that once 13 root servers in foreign countries are constrained and attacked by foreign countries, China’s Internet may face collapse. At present, the new domestic network architecture has been submitted to the Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission of China and it is believed that it will be widely used in the near future. Liu has proposed to tackle the security issues of future network with artificial intelligence. "Artificial intelligence with three elements of big data, computing power, and constant innovation can solve problems that common ways cannot do. It is not a simple automation but can come up with higher-level solutions. Internationally, some companies have used artificial intelligence to settle cyber security problems, such as predicting cyber-attacks with the accuracy rate of 85 percent.”

In short, against the background that the future network is developing fast, all countries are interested in network and technological innovations. In this summit, each guest will share their interpretations and new research results to provide innovative ideas for industrial ecological chain to establish win-win cooperation. The Second Future Network Summit will be a feast of technological and intelligent brilliance. Please stay tuned.

Let’s meet them and witness the future on the Global Future Network Development Summit. Join us through applying on
