Byron Clatterbuck (SEACOM), also speaking about submarine cable realities in Africa, how to make them sustainable and help effect change in the region.
Jerome Fleury (Cloudflare), who will be going into detail about the outage his organization faced on June 24th of this year, due to a massive BGP leak.

A panel on the relevance (or lack of thereof) of generalized speed tests in 2019 as minimum bandwidth increases for consumers, enterprises and service providers.

Numerous tutorials/workshops that will provide training on:IPv6 deployment.
IRR, RPKI and ROV for a secure, global BGP.
