So - You Think that You Can Build a Cellular Network out of Open Source?
OSW-04
James Body
CEO

Over the past few years, deployment of 2G and 3G mobile networks based upon open source hardware and software has become relatively common and well documented.

In this presentation we will examine what system components are required – and how to engineer them using applications like Kamailio and FreeSWITCH. Also – we will look at which parts of the jigsaw puzzle CANNOT easily be built from Open Source components today and how to go about finding these pieces with which to build your 4G system.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
OSW-07
Diego Gosmar
CEO
XCALLY
AI, Machine learning and related sciences will change the way we are working in many industries: for sure the contact center world will be heavily impacted: how exactly? The most obvious thought could be saving costs by substituting human agents with AI algorithms. However this is not really the main kind of benefits we expect. There are many others significant applications we can deploy by using AI, and they will be able to create many new jobs in spite of the lost ones. During the session, we are going to see how to use Machine Learning to exploit the Customer Journey datasets, or the Data Mining for customer sentiment analysis and AI for other interesting cognitive tasks. The usual misconceptions will be tackled, in order to show how we can really benefit from the AI and related technologies to improve both the customer experience and the contact center employee skills. Design and implementation challenges will be explained, along with practical examples and also a video case study, related to AI application for natural language omni-channel application.

Rodrigo Cuadra

In recent years we have seen how there has been a tendency for PBX systems to have Multi-Tenancy capabilities, however, there is an open debate because virtual machines in the cloud have been getting cheaper and facilitating their management. This allows the Multi-Instance model to become an economically and administratively viable option. Explaining the differences between Multi-Tenant and Multi-Instance, and in which situations it is advisable to use each of them. This conference is aimed at small entrepreneurs who are starting their carrier business, as well as large carrier businesses.

Be amazed and amused in equal measure during this fast-paced demo session where danger is never very far away! Each demo is confined to a very short time (<5 mins). Watch the brightest minds in the Open Source Comms industry deliver demos that show their ingenuity, wit or warped sense of humor as they compete for the following prizes: Swan - Demo works and looks effortlessly easy, but this masks layers of complexity and sophistication below! Audience vote - You get to choose which demo you like best. Crash and Burn - It would have been great if it worked, but it didn't (the more spectacular the failure the better)... Judges award - A hastily assembled gaggle of reprobates choose their favourite!
