In 2014, Total Telecom launched Gigabit Copper, a conference dedicated to the technologies enhancing the abilities and extending the life of existing copper networks.
In 2017, this conference evolved to become Gigabit Access, in response to the industry’s need to understand how access technologies – from GPON to G.fast, and DOCSIS to fixed-wireless – can work together to deliver gigabit speeds.
Now, for 2019, the 5th annual Gigabit Access conference will introduce Networks 4.0, a new conference collocated with Gigabit Access that will take a wider look at the future of the network.
After the European Electronic Communications Code set ambitious targets for EU telcos to deliver enhanced speeds, the industry now faces new challenges.
At Gigabit Access 2017, DG CONNECT predicted a need for EUR500 billion of investment in broadband networks to achieve these new targets. Creating a business case to justify such huge investment must now be a top priority for telcos.
At Gigabit Access and Networks 4.0, we will introduce key new topics that architects and engineers are grappling with as software plays an increasingly important role in network management.
Understand the growing importance of SDN and NFV, how they are changing the way telcos think about networks, and bringing new opportunities for the industry.
In keeping with the Total Telecom ethos of covering the business of telecoms, Gigabit Access and Networks 4.0 will not be a highly technical conference.
Instead, it will be the opportunity for those tasked with monetising superfast broadband access to come together to explore opportunities, meet potential partners and learn from global best practice.
Gigabit Access and Networks 4.0 will be a strategic two day conference attracting more than 350 of the most senior and strategic executives in the field to learn, share and network.
Join us in 2019 to develop your gigabit future.
