Webinar Series

Join us for our brand-new webinar series launching in April 2020

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, FutureNet World 2020 did not go ahead as planned in March and has now been postponed to September 22nd-23rd, and we hope to see you all there.  In the meantime we thought it would be valuable to host a series of free webinar’s over the next few months focused on some of the key themes that will be covered at FutureNet World.

We have selected some of the industry’s leading analysts to facilitate these discussions and we are excited to be bringing together some of the most pioneering CSPs for these highly interactive panels. As organisations are now moving beyond technical exploration to deployment, speakers have agreed to offer some honest insight into their journeys’ to autonomous networks and will be sharing experience of what is working well, some of the pain-points they are experiencing and strategic roadmaps ahead.

If you have any questions or suggestions for topics or industry speakers you would like to hear from please email: gilescummings@futurenetworld.net.
