Gigabit Copper is focused on the developents in copper extension technologies, such as G.Fast, ADSL, and VDSL  and how they are enabling operators to leverage existing copper networks to rollout superfast broadband more quickly and more cost effectively. The conference programme will examine the opportunities, strategies and deployment options available to the telecomsindustry when deploying copper extension technologies.


As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance


Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move


Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby


With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
