CWIC: Track 4

Satellite & Hybrid Networks

Tickets start at £25

Extending the reach of mobile in a sustainable way – are satellite and hybrid networks the answer to connecting the unconnected?

The UK set the ambitious target of getting full fibre broadband to every home by 2025 back in 2019 but looks unlikely to achieve this.  Almost certainly wireless will have a role to play in getting high speed broadband connectivity to UK homes in rural locations where fibre is too costly.  At the same time, the UK’s emergency services, requiring high reliability coverage in all parts of the UK, are transitioning to the Emergency Services Network (ESN) being delivered by BT/EE.  But is it reasonable to expect MNOs to meet public service driven coverage obligations at the risk of their own commercial sustainability?  Could the integration of satellite in 5G tip the balance on costs for these areas?

Speakers to be announced.


Tickets are now available for the CW International Conference: Wireless in Digital and Circular Economies on 9 November at the spacious IWM Duxford and online.
