Data streaming is transforming the telecommunications market, putting pressure on telco service providers to provide more interoperable, reliable, and real-time connectivity. In a sector where inflexible, monolithic platforms were once the default, now industry innovators like DISH Wireless are unlocking new value for their customers with real-time network streaming.

  • An overview of DISH network services and how the company produces over an exabyte of data daily
  • Why DISH chose Confluent Cloud vs other data streaming platforms to serve as the foundation for its intelligent 5G network
  • How DISH Wireless is powering the launch of new products and services like data mesh and driving real-time backend operations
  • What the future of 5G looks like when combined with data streaming and Kafka
