Finally! A Conference by technology innovators for technology leaders!

The Broadband Forum Ultra-fast Broadband Acceleration Seminar (UFBB Base) is NOT a conference for those who like to skim the surface of communications technology…

UFBB BASe, taking place June 25-27 in Den Haag, The Netherlands, is THE conference for those who love being on the cutting edge of technology and best practice, and like to dive deeply – asking the tough questions and exploring the “why” and “how” of network innovation and market success. UFBB BASe attendees are tech-minded, and want to learn from the best, share their expertise, and deliver the latest innovations today while concurrently shaping the future of broadband.

With newly announced visionary speakers like Light Reading Editor-in-Chief Ray LeMaistre, “the father of DSL” John Cioffi of ASSIA, Orange VP Christian Gacon, Research Head Trevor Linney of Openreach, Michael Dargue of Cartesian, Christian Macherel and Andreas Thöny of Swisscom, and Patrick Rausch of POST Luxembourg joining already announced speakers like Dr. Andres Gladisch of DT, Paul Spruyt of Nokia, Robin Mersh and Kevin Foster of Broadband Forum, Gerald Clerckx of A1 Telekom, and a host of other leaders, it’s easy to see why UFBB BASe will be a conference like no other! Sponsors like Calix, F-Secure, Go!Foton, Huawei (Platinum), Actelis, AVM, Devolo, Domos, EXFO, InCoax, MoCA Access, Netcomm, Nokia (Silver), ASSIA and SoftAtHome (Bronze) will also provide visionary executives, deep technology expertise, and exhibits and demonstrations to the event.

See our updated agenda for the world-class line up of speakers… and plan on plenty of opportunities to network – including a special social event the evening of Day 2 of the conference.

Register today for this not-to-be-missed event that will examine many of the hottest topics and challenges in broadband today – from how to leverage the latest advancements in carrier grade Wi-Fi, the Connected Home, and cloud-based services to build a technologically advantaged network, to lessons in creating an operational model that can successfully leverage this advantage to deliver valued services with agility.

What has changed?

Broadband Forum, the communications industry’s leading organization focused on accelerating broadband innovation, standards, and ecosystem development is now managing both content and logistics for the former Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFBB) event. The new UFBB BASe will carry-on with the strong technical core you’ve come to expect from UFBB, as well as bring to the agenda new industry “hot” topics and innovative thinking that have been the hallmarks of the highly successful Broadband Forum BASe series, which coincidentally will also be passing its 11th event milestone in Den Haag.

“The place to be if you seriously want to improve in ultra broadband access technology.”

Patrick Rausch - POST TECHNOLOGIES

“Best event of technical DSL discussions.”

Martin Kuipers - ADTRAN

“Excellent knowledge exchange and networking opportunity for the engineering practitioner."

Frank den Hartog - TNO

"An excellent event forum to share technical information and knowledge between operators and vendors/suppliers."

Thomas Henritzi - NETCOLOGNE

When and Where?

The dates and location are locked in – 25 through 27 June, 2019 in Den Haag, The Netherlands – at the beautiful four-star Hotel NH Hotel Den Haag.

What should I expect?

UFBB BASe will be the premier communications industry event this year that focuses on the important policies, trends, technologies, and opportunities that affect broadband in Europe and beyond in 2019. Unique in its balance of vision, real-world experience, and technical/operational insights, the former TNO Ultra-Fast Broadband seminar has developed a stellar reputation over the last decade for thought leadership, high quality speakers, technical acumen, and a collaborative and energetic vibe. Now entering its eleventh year in 2019, Broadband Forum has taken over organization of this seminar and will be adding elements of its highly successful BASe series events to create the new “UFBB BASE” that will both carry forward the traditional focus of UFBB while bringing some new world-class speakers and perspectives to the table. This combination of the proven UFBB recipe with the breadth and depth of Broadband Forum resources will elevate UFBB BASe to new levels, and we are looking forward to your participation!

Exploring Europe’s emerging broadband market drivers and the most promising next-generation access technologies and best practices for operator success, UFBB BASe will be built around themes for each of its three days.

  • Day One: A Market and Regulatory Overview of Europe and Beyond
  • Day Two: A Deep Dive on Next Generation Access, Open Source, and Connected Home Technologies and Case Studies
  • Day Three: How to Find Success with Advanced Technologies and What to Expect Next

Delivered by those at the forefront of developments in the industry, the seminar will focus on:

  • The latest breakthroughs in the following next-generation access technologies (Gfast, G.hn, 10 Gbps PON, SDN/NFV)
  • Real-life use cases and best practice for next generation access
  • The opportunities that the convergence of wireless (5G) and wireline fixed access brings forward
  • The latest innovations in the Connected Home and advanced Wi-Fi
  • The best practices in Cloud Central Office (CloudCO), SDN, and enabling last mile connectivity.

This will be an event not to be missed, with a host of new and exciting topics, a lot of familiar faces, and plenty of opportunities to network (don’t forget to follow us on our event LinkedIn page.
