New York, NY – November 1, 2017 - Michael Lazar, SVP of Telecom at DataArt, will chair the Innovation Showcase at the Telecom Application Development Summit in Lisbon on November 14-15, 2017, where he’ll also be a keynote speaker.

  • Hybrid Mobile Network Operator demonstration using Software Defined Radio (SDR) and open source base station software to create cost effective localized LTE networks.
  • Achieving Amazon and Google Cloud economics with Immutable Diskless Compute Pool for zero time provisioning; and ZFS-On- Linux storage (ZFS – Zetabyte File System) using open source.
  • Containerization of telecom services, moving beyond network virtualization savings into operations savings in telecom services and platforms through open source containerization like OpenShift.
  • Automated Insurance Drone, exo.expert, winner of the innovation award by the French government department of FinTec – Pôle de compétitivité mondial Finance Innovation.
  • Multi-factor authentication including voice, video and context for finance and banking applications.
  • VNF (Virtual Network Function) certification and real-time testing.
