Future Global Network Development Summit

21-22 September 2022 | Barcelona

Everyone wants to be connected. Connected with the people, newest technology, smart devices. Connected with the world. The 2020 global pandemic crisis forced us and the whole society to undergo multiple lockdowns and it is becoming clear that the definition of the workplace may have changed permanently. The confidence that was newly found in remote working gives extra significance to applications aiming to improve telepresence: from virtual or augmented reality all the way to remote surgeries.

Let us reveal the core. Let us discuss the “fifth generation” of telecommunication systems, or 5G which is crucial for digitalisation efforts. Let us ask a question: How roll-out will be one of the most critical building blocks of the European digital economy and society in the next decades? The newest 5G/6G wireless networking technology that phones, smartwatches, cars, and who knows what else, will use in the coming years, but it is still not yet available in every region around the world.

The very first annual of the Future Global Network Development Summit has been designed to unlock the potential of the newest wireless 5G deployment and the potential future look at the 6G development as well. Key internal strategies from top European telco companies will be embraces, such as monetising 5G and IoT through network as a service plus, 6G visions and drivers, what does the success look like in the era of emerging technologies, the rise of the new production employee enabled by 5G networks and many others.

You will also benefit from remarkable networking opportunities due to limited seats of this business event. It will be the right place for sharing ideas, getting insights and inspiration, learning from experienced leaders and establishing important business contacts! Discuss with your peers, share your thoughts and be involved in the 16+ case studies from senior level decision-makers.

  • High-frequency beam technology in 5G that will be radically new, meeting future demand
  • Building the unified 4G/5G network to meet the needs of today and tomorrow
  • Cloud-based hosting, AI customer service and automated processes as a tool for minimising the running costs
  • 6G visions and drivers: Enabling mobile operators to leverage the satellite connectivity to expand their coverage

CASE STUDY DAY 1

O2 Czech Digital Journey

Digitization is a major trend, even reinforced during the last 2 pandemic years, that is putting double challenge to the operators: we have to accelerate our own modernization to ultimately reduce dependence on physical channels and processes, and in the same time support our customers in their digitization efforts through increasing data traffic and innovative services (cloud, cyber sec etc.). Excellent business opportunity for us, and enormous challenge in the same time.
During my presentation, I am touching three areas that we see in O2 Czech Republic as essential to successfully walk thru this double challenge as a winner:
• Modernization of legacy (telco incumbent) architecture to increase speed of change delivery
• Smart CAPEX principles, namely keeping cost per customer flat
• 5G monetization is a must

CASE STUDY DAY 1

Spectrum Policy and Telecom Regulatory Frameworks: Prioritising Objectives for the 2020s

Public Policy in the telecommunications sector continues to have a large impact in investment and innovation. Progress is however not linear, and policy objectives and priorities can at times seem contradictory. On the one hand, the European Union is setting aggressive political connectivity targets for 2030, including providing Gigabyt coverage to all households, expanding 5G coverage to all populated areas, and deploying 10,000 edge nodes to ensure businesses have access to low latency services. On the other hand, regulators have been instrumental in the declining revenues and valuations of EU telecom operators, hindering investor confidence and creating a connectivity investment gap vs. the US and Asia estimated at 42 billion EUR per year. The presentation will discuss the role of telecom regulation and spectrum policy in reaching the 2030 EU goals.

CASE STUDY DAY 2

Risks and Opportunities in the EU Data Disruptive Regulatory Environment

Data can be one of the greatest assets for a company. Particularly, telecommunication service providers have a unique opportunity to innovate and scale with data driven solutions as they utilize their physical infrastructure strength and transpose it into their digital infrastructure. For Europe to tackle the future opportunities and challenges created by the digital industry, it needs a thriving and responsible private sector. Such a view has been confirmed by recent communications from the EU Commission President von der Leyen stressing the need for Europe to lead the transition to a new digital world. However, with recent regulatory disruptions affecting how companies process and transfer data – in particular personal data, traffic data & location data – the question remains whether the EU can compete with USA and China companies in the race towards a digital future.
• Where are we and what’s next on data privacy and data security affecting telecommunication service providers?
• Quick walkthrough on the regulatory changes for data transfers between the USA and EU
• Quick walkthrough on several regulatory responses to Schrems II on EU level
• Business responses to Schrems II and what does it mean for a European Telecommunication Service Provider - innovation and best practices sharing
• Quick walkthrough on several innovative solutions from telco’s to meet regulatory compliance throughout the EU
• Quick walkthrough on several innovative solutions from A1 Telekom Austria to meet regulatory compliance in our footprint

CASE STUDY DAY 2

5G in Cross-Border Mobility Use Cases: How KPN Is Working on Creating a “Blueprint”

With 5G being rolled out by operators all across the EU-member states, it becomes clear that if operators are aiming at having 5G play a pivotal role in Connected Automated Mobility, we need new mechanisms to facilitate these in a cross border context.
• Introduction to & status of the 5G-Blueprint project
• Goals for KPN in participating in 5G-Blueprint and other EU- (co-) funded projects
• Current insights into standardisation requirements and viability & governance when operators use publicly owned communication infrastructure

Great quality of presentations and it was great to have plenty of time to discuss and network.
