Gigabit your way

Keynotes
There was a time when only Fiber with its low maintenance and unlimited speed potential was the only option for Gigabit services to the home. While the benefits of fiber remain clear, new and sometimes disruptive alternatives are now available to us. The need for fiber alternatives and the disruptiveness of these new technologies is unique for each operator. Gigabit your way embraces new and disruptive technologies fitting the needs of the business with programable fiber, copper, cable or wireless technologies delivering a competitive edge when and where needed.

Fast, reliable, intelligent: How innovative home networking solutions help retain customers

Keynotes
Weak WiFi connections or "dead zones" without coverage at all are a horror for customers. They want to go online everywhere, in the living room, in the kitchen or in the basement. But often it's not about top speeds, but about ensuring that the services customers subscribed for really are available where they are needed. A strong performance level is therefore often more important than peak rates. In his presentation, Sebastian Richter explains why intelligent home networking solutions that combine top speed, reliable coverage and intelligent network management are key – and can actively increase customer loyalty.
