About BASe

BASe is a global Broadband Forum Seminar series that provides attendees with cutting-edge insights into new technologies. Created by technology innovators for technology leaders, BASe events consist of a world-class line-up of major operators, technology leaders, and industry analysts bringing innovative perspectives and actionable insights to participants. These seminars are held at major industry conferences throughout the year, including Broadband World Forum (Berlin), OFC (San Diego), UFBB (the Hague), and Calix ConneXions 2018 (Las Vegas), and have earned sterling reviews from attendees. Each seminar assembles a world-class lineup of speakers who will share compelling perspectives on the broadband ecosystems driving next-generation networks and the innovations needed by service providers both large and small to meet consumer connectivity demands of tomorrow.
