Opportunities in Next Generation Networks

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 28-Mar-2008 17:19

I have got an invitation to attend the 2nd Annual Opportunities in Next Generation Networks, which I am not able to attend due to some conflicts.

Here is part of the description:


Telecommunication carriers are not the only ones racing to build, deploy and launch a variety of access infrastructures for NGNs. In today’s digital and telecommunications world, industries which have up until now sat on the fringes of the industry are poised to enter the world of network owners and operators.

» New and old media firms
» Internet giants
» Utility and infrastructure providers
» Government, health and educational institutes

All of them have necessarily become stakeholders in the broadband end-game.

Some look to benefit from synergies, whilst others see new revenue and business streams.

There are even those for which high speed broadband has become a necessity, making NGNs the logical vertical extension of their businesses. And as for New Zealand, our digital ambition cannot be realised without a strong foundation (infrastructure) for which to deliver our next generation (children) into the global marketplace – on an equal fitting with their global cousins.

The Inaugural Opportunities in Next Generation Networks Summit 2007 argued strongly that the “generation of tomorrow” has become a redundant cliché. That generation arrived yesterday.

Was LLU too late? How fast can we move on it? Where will investment come from? What options do we have?


The agenda looks good. It is a shame I won't be attending.
