How the Intelligent Network is Improving Lives

From streamlining city transportation services to integrating edge devices into city and business operations, the programmable network is opening up limitless opportunities for developers. But while apps in the first world help people find a date and get food delivered, those in developing countries are creating apps that help grow food without wasting water resources or help provide access to clean drinking water.

As speed and access improve globally, network infrastructure will serve as the foundation for innovation that will improve lives - from cities to villages, in every region. Developers from places like Tanzania and Haiti are eager to solve real-world problems - Dr. Susie Wee will discuss how education and access to the right technology can help them do just that.
