Conferences

A Running List of Major Telecom Conferences, When They Are, and Where to Find Them

The telecom community has no shortage of conferences. And these opportunities to listen, learn, and network are available across the globe.

Some gatherings have a laser focus on submarine cables or broadband or MVNOs, while others have a little something for everyone.

Our experts have developed a list of 50 leading events for anyone in telecom, organized by time of year and region. We'll move events on and off of this list as final dates are announced.

Upcoming Panel: Discovering the Untapped Potential in Terrestrial and Subsea Routes in Eurasia

Turkey has long been a geopolitical and economic gateway between Asia and Europe. It also holds a strategic position for international network development, offering a natural potential for diversified subsea and terrestrial routes along the Digital Silk Road.

TeleGeography Research Analyst Elliott Cheresh is gearing up for Capacity Eurasia 2018 in Istanbul, where he’ll moderate a panel about the untapped potential for new routes across the region.

The Next Mass Extinction: Aging Submarine Cables

The rapid pace of demand growth will require staggering amounts of bandwidth in the coming years.

While many older cables built in the late 1990s and early 2000s continue to play a key role in global connectivity, their days increasingly appear to be numbered. 

TeleGeography's Alan Mauldin will talk about all of this and more when he returns to Submarine Networks World in Singapore September 24-26, 2018. 

Happy Anniversary to the AC-1: A Twenty Year Retrospective at Subsea EMEA

Way back in 1998, a press release went out from Global Crossing about the first segment of their transatlantic fiber-optic cable.

"Global Crossing announced today that it has begun transmitting voice and data communication through Atlantic Crossing (AC-1)," read the release, touting the cable's state-of-the-art system. This segment will double the total capacity in service across the Atlantic Ocean! Full city-to-city connectivity! A link between Europe and the U.S.! 

Did you catch what's so interesting about that language?
