Serving the Gigabit Nation

Serving the Gigabit Nation

As we all come to terms with operating under COVID-19 lockdown, you are invited to this inaugural INCA Webinar looking at the key issues for the independent sector.

As we develop the new gigabit networks that will soon replace the ageing copper network across the UK, we have the opportunity not only to change the capabilities for end users, but to improve the way networks are operated and managed.

This workshop brings together an expert panel of speakers to look at the underpinning issues of Systems, Operations, Maintenance, Service Delivery and what applications can run over the top (broadband, voice, TV, etc.)

With key speakers from NetAdmin, Digpro, Geopal, Simwood, Foehn and others, discussing some of the latest developments in the field of Operations, Maintenance and Service Delivery for Gigabit networks.

This first webinar, sponsored by Hellermann Tyton, is an important part of keeping contact with our members and helping the sector develop during these difficult times.

Virtual teas and coffees will be available, bring your own mug and biscuits!
