Should cost be the deciding factor when selecting backhaul architecture?
Genesis Founder, President & CTO Stephen Cooke will speak at the 2014 Broadband World Forum taking place from the 21st to 23rd October in Amsterdam.
Stephen has been invited to join the Think Tank Debate: Should cost be the deciding factor when selecting backhaul architecture?
The panel will deliberate the cost implications to be considered when selecting backhaul architecture. The panelists will debate answers to questions such as:
• What are the best alternatives to fiber when it comes to improving existing backhaul networks?
• How can operators meet customer demands whilst maximizing ROI?
• Can operators delay investment in fiber without hindering performance?
• What is the true cost of small cell backhaul?
