Huawei Ultra Broadband Forum 2018

Monetizing Ultra-Broadband

Ultra-broadband networks need to be built, with fiber-to-the-premises the ultimate goal, but they need to be monetized, too.

G.fast commitments Iain, sounds exciting - I agree with Susan.

I believe that is what will ignite the demand as well.

Thanks for keeping us informed!

G.fast commitments On the subject of G.fast, I think announcements from one or two other major European operators along the lines of BT's would be a huge spur for the technology. Wondering if Deutsche Telekom is due to make a statement on this in the near future, given its commitment to vectoring and desire to boost bandwidth without having to build fiber all the way to customer premises.

Re: Monetizing Ultra-Broadband DHagar, 

Yes. When you know where value is created you can intensify that area at the same time that you can plan a different strategy for a different part of the business to activate it more.

Re: Intensive ultra-broadband discussion Thanks for the little preview, Iain. :)

Looking forward to reading the latest of all the intensive ultra-broadband gathering. These shows are wonderful in so many ways. Networking is an essential part of any business, but also, these events as packed with such intensity, everyone's ideas are like bubbles in boiling water.

More times than not, from such events, come out something that is going to push the industry forward. 

"BT very encouraged by its G.fast trials (so much so that it's opened a new lab at its Ipswich research facility), so momentum building in that area." 

That's wonderful. :) So inspiring to see how new ideas generate even better ideas.

Re: Intensive ultra-broadband discussion Thanks. Some more blogs to go up on the site over the next few days, but collaboration with OTT players and the need for operators to think about more than just the access network were very strong themes at the show. That said, there were also some very interesting presentations from operators like BT, TalkTalk and Swisscom about the use of access network technologies like vectoring and G.fast. BT very encouraged by its G.fast trials (so much so that it's opened a new lab at its Ipswich research facility), so momentum building in that area.

Re: Monetizing Ultra-Broadband Susan, I am with you.  And I believe that monetizing technology is a key to effective use and development of technology.  It is important to know where value is created.

Intensive ultra-broadband discussion Thanks, Iain, for keeping us posted. I am looking forward to your summary of the two days of intensive ultra-broadband discussion now that the show is over, and all the new things about to come from it.
