Why Attend?

The fifth Ultra-Broadband Forum (UBBF 2018) will be held from September 10th to September 11th, 2018, in Geneva, Switzerland. As a leading global ultra-broadband event, UBBF is a platform for the ultra-broadband industry to share viewpoints on ultra-broadband development, facilitate the business success of all partners in the industry chain, and collectively create a sustainable ecosystem.

An intelligent era is fast approaching us, and the entire ICT industry will face tremendous opportunities and challenges. As a result, the industry chain has shifted its focus and has started exploring how to leverage technologies such as AI, Big Data, and cloud computing to promote the industry’s intelligent transformation and to maximize its business value. UBBF this year has chosen ‘Intent-Driven Network: Maximize Your Business Value’ as the theme. By focusing on four hot topics ‘Premium Home Broadband, Reshaping User Experience’, ‘Cloud-Network Convergence, Enabling New Growth with B2B’, ‘Evolving Towards 5G and Cloud-Ready Metro Network Architecture’, and ‘Embracing a Future-Proof All-Optical Network’, this event presents an opportunity to share business innovations and practices of Intent-Driven Network.

More than 500 industry elites from telecom operators, vertical industry leaders, regulators, standards organizations, media agencies, and consulting institutions will take part this year and embrace change together.

UBBF Review


Exploring industry development in the cloud era, and looking at how to redefine the digitization process

UBBF 2017 explored a vision of future networks and connectivity, highlighting the importance of B2B services for carriers, delivering the video dividends, accelerating the gigaband society, and the opportunities moving towards the 5G era. Key consensuses from UBBF 2017:

To grasp the opportunities of private line growth brought by cloud services, operators should fully leverage their advantages in networks, integrate the cloud and networks, to cultivate the differentiation and competitiveness of B2B private lines.

Video will bring huge dividends to the communications industry. A major challenge of 4K HDR development is the high bandwidth requirement, and the key to VR development is cloud-based VR.

Networks are the cornerstone of the digital economy. The digitization process is not only about network access, but also the service quality, speed, and related content and services. Accelerating digitization requires collaboration across industries.
