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.
