Gigabit Access 2017

Gigabit Access 2017

Rupert Wood, Research Director at Analysys Mason, will be chairing Day 2 of Gigabit Access 2017 in Brussels on 4-5 April 2017. He will also be moderating a panel on 'Fixed-wireless: The future of access networks?'  The panel will look at:

  • Understanding the potential of 5G to revolutionise access architectures
  • Can moviel ever be a real alternative to fixed access for the last hop?
  • Can fixed-wireless solve the rural access dilemma?

About the event

At Gigabit Copper 2016 the resounding message from operators was there is no one-size-fits-all strategy for delivering gigabit access networks. From GPON
to, and DOCSIS to VDSL, each operators' unique set of circumstances needs a unique approach to network improvement. To provide the full picture in 2017 Gigabit Copper evolves into Gigabit Access 2017.

Industry leaders will present on the work they are doing to optimise their access strategies as we move towards gigabit networks. The event also explores the next wave of access technologies, from XG-PON to XG-FAST, and DOCSIS 3.x to xDSL, as well as looking at the roleof 5G in future access architectures and the bandwidth demands of the next generation of services.
