The investment opportunity and challenges for future network infrastructure

Start: Wednesday 7 December 2022 16:00

End: Wednesday 7 December 2022 17:30

Venue: Online

Location: London

As networks scale, capacity & coverage requirements grow and enterprise & consumer demands escalate, where lies the investment opportunity for future network infrastructure? Do small cells provide the biggest opportunity, or does the focus remain on macro sites?

Whilst fibre will be the dominant technology for backhaul, to what extent will government subsidies be permitted to support connectivity in more remote areas and are other technologies being deployed in some cases in place of fibre. How will the increased energy demands of cell sites be managed in tandem with commitments to net-zero?

Following the recent Tower & Fibre roundtable in Las Vegas where US-centric challenges and opportunities were discussed in detail, what does Europe and the rest of the world share as regards the investment opportunity and/or challenges?

Join us as we hear from industry experts looking to explore this topic in more detail and present their views on the future European tower landscape.
