Fiber optic connectivity provider H20 Networks is a a lead sponsor of the 2nd annual International Dark Fiber convention being held in London, England next week.

The international convention will assess a range of issues including the increased deployment occurring at metro, access, rural and national level, as well as funding mechanisms.

The event will also act as a forum to discuss developments in the industry including regulatory change. This year, investment is a core theme and delegates will hear from leaders in this focused sector on subjects such as the return on investment that dark fiber provides and the impact this has on pricing strategies.

 

The program will also look in detail at customer segments, and geographical areas offering new growth opportunities including central and Eastern Europe, Balkans and Turkey and Africa.

 

One of the biggest barriers to deploying fiber optic networks is the cost. Graham Dupree, business manager, Government/Thames Valley, at H20 Networks will deliver a keynote address on the speed and economics of dark fiber.

 

“It is clear that dark fiber is a key enabler of next generation services and will also be the long term solution for directives such as universal broadband,” he said.
