April 3-4, 2008
Telecom ParisTech University
46 Rue Barrault F-75013
This conference will bring together policy makers, industry experts, and academics from the United States, Korea and Europe to examine the perspective of "Ultrabroadband" (i.e. transmission rates above 1Gbps on the residential market). It is a joint event of the Chair on Innovation and Regulation in the Digital Economy (Ecole Polytechnique - Telecom ParisTech - OrangeLabs) and is jointly organized with the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information (CITI), and Korea Telecom.
Telecom and cable companies around the world are planning to deploy ultrabroadband networks that require significant infrastructure investments. There are important questions on applications, demand, business models and regulatory conditions to resolve. In this conference, companies will demonstrate ultrabroadband applications, and speakers will explore the technological, economic, strategic, policy and regulatory dimensions of ultrabroadband:
- What are the different ultrabroadband deployment plans across the industrialized world?
- What is the role of the regulatory scenarios?
- What is the impact on content?
- What are the new quality of services dimensions?
- What are the determining factors for business strategies, pricing models, applications, advertising opportunities?
- Should there be national ultrabroadband policies?
- What are the impacts on broadband market structure? On competition?
