This event will focus on innovation in the broadband ecosystem:
High-speed access technologies (copper, coax and fiber, components and new standards)
Cloud services including CloudCo, NFV/SDN and network sharing
Connected Home including Internet of Things, Wi-Fi performance and the new User Services Platform
5G including wireless/wireline convergence, transport and network slicing.
In addition to the above we plan to add a best practices and application/use cases segment to the agenda. The goal is to provide attendees with a new perspective on what is being made available for broadband providers and users alike, delivered by industry leaders, many of whom are active participants in the Forum’s work.
Following is an outline of the workshop:
Worldwide market overview
Lead analysts from market research companies provide their perspectives on converged broadband networks.
Technology vision: support for ultrafast broadband
Component and system vendors and operators share their visions of the current and future ultrafast broadband networks and services
Best practices and use cases
System vendors will present individual innovation and solution capabilities of a converged access network the support software-defined (SDN) access architectures, cloud-based services, connected home and 5G.
Strategic operator view
Provider strategic view and new business requirements
Leading operators deliver their approaches to choosing specific technologies to support their services for home and access network architectures. They also will address integration challenges and future applications.
Join the dais
We are accepting speaker proposals in all segments -- section "Strategic Operator view" will feature operator candidates only. The other sections need proposals for presentations from manufacturers.
The workshops are Broadband Forum events and should follow an educational format and avoid product pitches, such as specific product information, prices, market position, etc. Proposals should highlight use cases, technology solutions, technology trends, best practices and contributions in standards' development.
Please submit proposals by no later than Monday, July 16th to Rhonda Heier at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your presentation title, abstract of two to three sentences, name, title and company or industry association.
Through a partnership with Additiv, the service provider delivers an OTT-like cloud-based offering that allows financial institutions to gain digital transformation without ripping and replacing mainframe legacy systems.
Chinese telcos won't buy enough NG-PON2 to drive down volume costs. But does that matter, considering the role the next-gen optical technology's going to play in 5G and service provider infrastructure?
We will explore several fiber network environments, common vulnerabilities, and the business impact of failures. Fiber networks are typically a combination of owned and leased fiber. Learn how to reduce MTTR by up to 60% when an event occurs and how to detect degradation before it generates a service impact. Fiber monitoring of leased fiber helps ensure that the responsible party is dispatched for repair and SLAs can be managed. We will discuss both in service and out of service monitoring. Learn about the opportunities to improve business results in the following environments:
Hyperscale datacenters- the business need for near 100% uptime
5G small cell combined with leased fiber - ensuring the SLA for leased fiber
Long haul and Metro dark and lit fiber monitoring - reducing MTTR and preventing damage
FTTX construction and service activation in the access or MSO network - accelerating time to revenue
In this insightful Light Reading radio show, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will outline the key service provider challenges, deployment considerations, next-gen Gigabit technologies, and service models to win market share in the rapidly growing MDU market.
