This will be followed by a discussion about COVID-19 and the future of connectivity, examining life following the pandemic and how it will impact the connectivity landscape of tomorrow. The event offers speaking sessions that discuss a range of topics, including Future: Applied, Connectivity Around the World and Keeping the Community Together. Speakers will investigate growth in sustainability, consolidating legacy and cutting-edge network architectures, building the need for 5G, digital security, women in technology and more.
“We are excited to offer this vital opportunity to the telecommunications sector in order to help them overcome any business disruption that this global pandemic has caused,” comments Ross Webster, ITW Event Director. “Discussion, collaboration and community have never been more important than they are now as communications and technology become a focal point in the effort to build a more enabled and secure future. This goal of bringing news, ideas and people together will be supported by the ITW Press Room, which will facilitate productive dialogue between the wholesale telecommunications sphere, the carrier community and the media. We look forward to being a catalyst for the many important networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities that are especially important across this ecosystem today.”
