Featured speakers

Dato’ Izzaddin Idris

President & Group CEO, Axiata Group Berhad

Telcos must become anchor to enabling the digital ecosystem for their customers. Partnerships will be important for telcos to achieve this.

Ir Ts Azizi Hadi

COO, Telekom Malaysia

We see 5G as a revolutionary technology that will open up and enable use cases that we never thought was possible. The low latency, high data capacity and reliability of 5G networks will help create a new platform for better delivery of financial services in the digital age.


Randeep Sekhon

CTO, Airtel

The Hybrid Cloud architecture will resonate with our customer-obsession by providing improved flexibility, network stability and performance and bringing agility and automation in our network operations.


Dhiraj Sharma

SVP Networks, Reliance JIO

James Feger

General Manager, F5 Networks

Telecom operators are going through multi-dimensional changes – hardware to software, 4G to 5G, hybrid cloud adoption – and as a result the attack footprint is growing rapidly. Security needs to fit into this fast-changing environment without sacrifice; it should become part of the design and help ensure application functions perform well and are always available.


Anubrata Biswas

MD & CEO, Airtel Payments Bank

We have seen that there is a significant uplift of services when there is a close integration of services between telecom and banking.


Suman Gandham

CEO, Finin

The hyper-personalised banking feature is a simple example of how AI and effective data analytics can customise the banking experience based on a user’s lifestyle, earn-spend capacity, financial commitments, financial habits and much more.
