CableLabs Mobile Summit Third Session – Convergence

Register Now

Third Session – Convergence

CableLabs invites you to participate in the Mobile Summit Third Session focusing on the topic of Convergence. For operators, both those operating mobile networks today and those seeking to build new mobile capability, maintaining and managing separate wireline and wireless access networks with overlapping capabilities is not only inefficient and costly, it limits the type of services they will be able to provide in the future. Convergence seeks to merge these technologies into a singular, multi-modal communication platform that will help reduce network complexity, cut operational costs, improve quality and create new business and service opportunities. 

Our Mission: To be the industry catalyst for developing converged wired and wireless network technologies to create seamless fixed and mobile connectivity

Registration is open and the cost to attend is free. Each person must register separately.
