September 14th | Rheingau


So much to talk about, so little time… This is why we decided to offer an additional exclusive 1-day workshop* in a relaxing atmosphere at an offsite country Hotel between vineyards and the Rhine.

This day offers the opportunity for an in depth discussion concerning the topic Data Centers and Edge Computing. The Goal is to promote an open discussion with little set Programm.

The Workshop Title is:

“Local data centers – local fiber networks: added value through integration?”

The following questions will be discussed:
  • What role do edge data centers play as integral components of the digital infrastructure in the expansion of 5G and fiber optic networks?
  • How can both asset classes be sensibly combined?
  • Hyperscalers and low latency requirements: Do we need more investments in a regionally distributed data center infrastructure?
  • The Homes Passed Deception: Has the Market Undervalued the Importance of Businesses Connected?

Johannes Bisping will moderate the workshop with field reports from Bisping & Bisping GmbH & Co. KG

 *Please note that the 1-day workshop will be held in german!
