Off the back of The Independent Networks Cooperative Association (INCA) Building GigaBit Britain Report released last year, we will be joining leading industry experts who are gathering in Newcastle upon Tyne on the 16th November, to explore new progress, funding opportunities and altnet initiatives in nationwide plans for developing gigabit infrastructure.

CEO of Zeetta Networks, Vassilis Seferidis, will be speaking on ‘Managing Networks of the Future’ as part of a workshop, alongside fellow leading business representatives from access innovators Calix, fiber software business NetAdmin and internetworking provider Adtran. Talks and panel discussions throughout the workshop will focus on how networks of the future will be managed throughout the UK, as independent fibre optic cable operators are now providing enhanced network operation services in cities. We propose that this is accelerated via adopting a new approach to wholesale service provisioning using software defined network technologies, for business and residential markets.

CEO of Zeetta Networks, Vassilis Seferidis comments:

“The versatility that software defined networking platforms like our cutting edge NetOS® technology provides is becoming more widely recognized as the solution to increasingly complex network operation demands at a reduced cost. Real-world SDN deployment can be integrated in patches and islands of network operators within cities and between cities, heightening connectivity between specific locations under one controller on a national level operation or split into smaller parts. The open programmable application of a platform like NetOS® allows for a flexible, dynamic network experience, which can manage an entire topography in a single display with its virtualization and network slicing capacity enabling multi-tenant operations.”

Our Marketing and Sales Director, Nick Randall, who will also be attending adds:

“It is an exciting time to be leading conversations at this influential event in nationwide plans for Building GigaBit Britain. It is becoming clearer that software defined networks provides the opportunity for organisations to cooperate far more effectively than they have to date in previous generations of network roll-out. We seek to enable a new kind of consensus between smart cities, local government, network providers and their customers to work together to deliver the network services that 21st century Britain requires.”

The ideas put forward throughout this conference with keynote speaker Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Minister for Digital, in attendance are set to present a powerful government lobby of smaller tech players to compete more efficiently among global telecom giants to enhance nationwide network provision.
