During the main conference speakers share their IP migration strategies, evaluating the different technology options such as SDH, IP, IP-MPLS, MPLS-TP among others. Technical presentations address the deployment of new IP-enabled services and applications such as IP SCADA, PMU, and IP Video Surveillance. Monitoring of an increasingly complex multi-vendor, multi-technology telecom network, and the integration of IP network security into a comprehensive end-to-end security strategy will be fully addressed. Assessment of the different public and private telecom infrastructure options including MVNO and PVNO will be made, as well as an examination of the future SDH and NFV service oriented telecom network architecture. Day three provide two parallel workshops, one focused on cyber-security for Utility telecom professionals, and the other on supporting tele-protection services with packet telecoms.
Alongside the case-study programme are 2 hands-on practical workshops on cyber-security and teleprotection, a number of technology innovation panel discussions, a series of intimate end-user round table debates, a live demo lab of the latest systems and solutions, an exhibition area displaying 10+ state of the art technology suppliers, and an evening networking reception open to all participants.
