Gigabit Access 2021 - virtual event

Gigabit Access 2021 Virtual

The virtual conference will be an opportunity to present the access network deployment and share ideas with the industry peers. Whilst being a technology-led conference, the event will also explore the business of networks and network delivery for the Alternative Service Providers.

New for 2021, the event will be exploring the role that next-generation access technologies including NG-PON2, XGS-PON and 5G are playing in network development and how emerging virtualisation technologies are revolutionising network management and the impact that this is having on network strategy.

Registration is free for CSP attendees and Nokia staff, and the two-day event will include virtual panel sessions and exhibits, including the networking capabilities for all delegates.
