Key people from the European networking community will meet together at the workshop entitled “Delivering high-speed broadband through next generation networks” that will take place in Tallinn to discuss a broad range of subjects (including technological, economic and political ones) associated with next generation broadband access. More specifically, the participants will address the challenges related with the near and long term perspectives of Next Generation Access (NGA) deployment. The workshop will provide insight into the main technological trends for NGA, including for example the novel concept of OFDMA-PONs. Moreover, the benefits and challenges of convergence between the diverse fields of optical and wireless access networks will be detailed. In addition, the workshop participants will offer insider views on architectural aspects, while the impact and opportunities offered by the new breed of access solutions and novel network design/operation business models will be highlighted.
