Roundtable 3C: Finding opportunities in active sharing

30 November | 11:15-12:30 ASET

Kevin will be hosting a roundtable discussing the opportunities for active sharing

Active sharing is the sharing of active elements of a communications network – where a neutral infrastructure foundation allows various users (such as operators) to make use of another network’s service. A curated group of experts will gather to brainstorm the latest developments and what opportunities and benefits active sharing can offer.
