In light of the current situation with regards to the review of the EU telecoms framework, this conference will explore future Next Generation Access deployment. Issues will be explored such as implementation and regulation, shared risk models, and open network access/ network neutrality. Amid the current economic climate, increased government involvement in the roll-out of broadband networks for next-generation access (NGA) networks could imply a variety of regulatory and policy stances. This event will provide a platform for debate for creating the right balance between investment strategies, implementation, possible architectures and implications on services and innovation versus the need for regulation.

Day 1 will focus on the Investment and developing a framework that allows players to maximise the huge potential that NGNs offer. By examining the various regulatory toolsthat are available, it will look at best practices in developing aninvestment friendly environment whilst maintaining a level playingfield.

Day 2 moves on to look at NGA deployment.It will review how the deployment of broadband is likely to emerge andconcepts involved with this including fixed and mobile business modelsand FTTH. How will the infrastructure be implemented and how will thisaffect both existing players and new entrants?
