Following the keynote interviews, our speakers will join a panel where they debate some of the key challenges telcos are facing when delivering gigabit access networks including:
• Do demand dynamics warrant a more cautious approach to fibre investment or encourage GPON pioneers?
• When will we actually need gigabit speeds? How does this impact business models today?
• Will fibre win the day or can emerging copper extension technologies and hybrid fibre-coaxial/DOCSIS 3.x be competitive long-term?
• Does fibre’s OPEX advantage mean telcos that are investing now have the long-term advantage?
