Silicon.co.uk – 2020.05.12
‘Broadband Forum today announced new dates for its Broadband Acceleration Seminar (BASe) series which will run throughout 2020. Providing the broadband industry with the latest information on developments in next-generation broadband and attracting proven leading industry experts globally, the BASe series delivers insights into the future of broadband from the world’s largest service providers, top-tier analysts and leading vendors and suppliers.
At a time when full broadband connectivity services, the Connected Home and the customer experience is more critical than ever Broadband Forum and its BASe series has a responsibility of keeping the industry informed and inspired. Following last year’s success which saw hundreds of experts attend the BASe series, virtual sessions will be a big part of the 2020 schedule. Fiber Broadband Association and Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Council Europe will join Broadband Forum in the first of six 60-90 minute sessions of the BASe webinar series. The first session will be ‘The Worldwide PON Market BASe Series Webinar’ on Thursday, May 14 on the theme of “PON Reality Check 2020”. Held every two week continuing into July, the series will feature presentations from Julie Kunstler, Principal Analyst at OMDIA, Lisa Youngers, CEO of Fiber Broadband Association, Hal Roberts, Calix, ITU/FSAN/IEEE, Robin Mersh, CEO of Broadband Forum, and Eric Joyce, Chair of the Market Intelligence Committee and Board Member, FTTH Council Europe.
It will also be a very busy last quarter of 2020 as UFBB BASe 2020 returns in November, in Den Haag, The Nertherlands for the twelfth consecutive year. This follows the three October events – two BASe BBWF 2020 Workshops to kick-off Broadband World Forum 2020 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and BASe North America, in Las Vegas, USA. In addition, the first ever BASe FTTH Europe 2020 will take place at FTTH Conference, in Berlin, Germany, in December.’
