CENGN Summit 2020: Join Us Online

2020 marks the 5th anniversary of CENGN Summit! It’s been five years of discussing the latest technologies and network advancements, hearing from countless expert speakers, and getting a look at the companies utilizing this next-generation tech.

This year, CENGN takes the event online with a completely virtual platform to present an exciting new experience. There will be technical sessions centred around evolutions in technology and their use cases. Innovation-based sessions are also included, focusing on the impacts of tech advancement and overcoming implementation challenges. Innovative Canadian companies will also be at the Summit, ready to exhibit their disruptive solutions in this year’s showcase.

The summit program is packed with intriguing sessions and expert speakers, so let’s break down the Summit piece by piece.


The Summit Speaker Schedule begins in the morning with a Keynote speech from JC Fahmy, President and CEO of CENGN. Next, attendees will hear from Pascal Menezes, CTO of MEF, followed by Cloudflare’s CTO, John Graham-Cumming. After lunch, the President and CEO of CWTA, Robert Ghiz, will give his platinum keynote to begin the afternoon’s activities.

This year, we’re excited to hear from many local Canadian and international speakers. We’re eager to welcome Cloudical’s, Alexander Trost in Germany for our Cloud Native Session and Fortinet’s Nicolas Thomas for our Cyber Security Block on our technical track. On the innovation track, IDB’s Howard Tsao from Taiwan will join us as well as Amdocs’ Alla Goldner joining from Israel for our ORAN panel.

Tech Track vs Innovation Track

The CENGN Summit program will be split into two: the technical track and the innovation track.
