NextGen Ventura Workshop

19th May 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


A Pragmatic, Real World Examination of How to Change the Rules for Next Generation Networks and Digital Infrastructure
It is well understood that next generation networks were seen as a challenge. From future-proofing the nation’s digital infrastructure to more localized investments – much has been said about the investment required and why caution is needed.

So Why and How are People Blowing through these Rules and Creating Successful Network and Infrastructure Investments?

Technologies have evolved. Demand has outstripped forecasts. Costs have fallen. Legacy assets are increasingly obsolescent. Caution has become a cul-de-sac. It is time to review the situation. As with all key issues that impact on economic policy, the evidence needs to be thoroughly understood before over-simplistic policy positions are selected.

A Central London Workshop on 19 May to Help you Re-Examine the Current Realities

This workshop combines learning directly from leading FTTH and NGA networks in different territories and circumstances.

Richard Jones - Chief Commercial Officer VenturaNext and a partner in consulting firm Ventura Team - will discuss business models that work (and those that don’t) based on experience from being lead consultant to many world-class FTTH/NGA networks including a ‘mini’ NBN and the World’s first ‘gigabit everywhere’ incumbent. He is responsible for planning, deploying and running networks ranging from incumbents to alternative operators, from electricity companies to wastewater companies, from Kazakhstan to the Caribbean and from the Arctic Circle to the Southern tip of Africa.
Pragmatic, Learning from Real World Examples - not Out-Dated Views and Theories
The workshop will also include learning from Ventura’s start-up in Sweden - ranked number 4 in the World for broadband service value and eventually sold to TeliaSonera for 60m Euros in 2014, and their latest start-up running open-access networks in South Africa, supporting probably the first Gigabit residential broadband in all of Africa. The workshop will be interactive and deliver actionable outputs – including modeling tools to evaluate alternative investment approaches. An Important Learning Opportunity For property developers, M&E consultants, planners, infrastructure developers, telecoms professionals (incumbents and altnets) and regional and city economic & community strategists, this is an opportunity to re-appraise the assumptions and consider afresh how to future-proof digital infrastructures to achieve economic and social benefits – without risking public sector resources.
Places are strictly limited to a maximum of 50 delegates and are offered on a first come first served basis.
COST: Private Sector £150, Public Sector £90, Third Sector £75, NextGen Member £75*. Cost inclusive of lunch and refreshments, exclusive of fees and VAT
