Submarine Cable Workshop: Waves of Change! (Second Session)

Organized by:

Submarine cables remain critical infrastructure for the modern world. Today, submarine cables carry over 98% of intercontinental data traffic, providing a web of comprehensive connectivity, reliability and redundancy. But the connectivity needs and technology of our world continues to change – our industry is critical to support and drive such global development. PTC’16 will examine cable protection and regulatory development, the latest developments in system design and upgrade, and focus on issues critical to the ongoing success of the Global Submarine Cable industry.

The Changing Global Cable Map, What’s Next?  
The changing global mesh, building the story of huge volumes of demand with OTTs, older cables reaching a critical 25-year mark within the planning horizon for new cables, technology approaching the Shannon limit! Does this result in somewhat longer build-cycle than we’ve seen in previous up-periods of the market? How are we going to handle all this and build the network of the future?

Emergency Communications Workshop: Reimagining Emergency Telecoms (Second Session)

Organized by:

Since 2007, eCLIC (the Emergency Communications Leadership and Innovation Center) has evangelized the principles of democratized innovation and collaborative leadership to improve emergency communications. For years, we have spread this message at the Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) Annual  “Emergency Communications & Disaster Management workshop” (ECDM), the US Pacific Command’s Pacific Endeavor (PE), Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley’s Disaster Management Initiative (DMI), and other venues.

In 2009, eCLIC and Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley joined forces. CMUSV/eCLIC collaboratively supported both PE and PTC 2009 through 2015. Again, we will support the ECDM workshop on 17 JAN, at PTC’16 in Oahu, Hawaii (see www.ptc.org). For 2015, REDCOM’s Klaus Gueldenpfennig and O3b’s Jack Deasy joined Pat Lanthier as Co-Chairs of the PTC ECDM.

PTC and the ECDM workshop are international events. The full conference attracts 1000+ leaders from communications companies, governments, military, humanitarian groups, academia and emergency services from 50+ countries. The ECDM also collaborates with USPACOM’s PE (23 countries, via the Multinational Communications Interoperability Program - MCIP) and the UN Working Group on Emergency Communications (UNWGET).

We invite you to collaborate with us at PTC’16. Help us “Reimagine Emergency Telecoms” via a “Whole Community” approach for Emergency Communications and Disaster Management (ECDM).

Pacific Workshop: Reimagining Telecoms

Organized by:

With the telecom/ICT sector undergoing rapid transformation, the small islands and developing economies of the Pacific will need to tag in and be part of the new digital world. In line with the PTC 2016 theme, Reimagining Telecoms, this workshop will focus on the Pacific with a few selected technologists and country players discuss re-imagining telecoms, sharing their context and discussing necessary new ecosystems, capacity and goals needed, with policy, regulatory challenges, and needs to shape strategies, plan for transition and implementation, what needs to be enabled and gaps to be bridged, and how the industry and organization can leverage on the new era of new paradigms, partnerships, matured technologies, cyber ecosystems.

The panelist will first see discussions by the selected technologists introduce and highlight key changes that technology is bringing about and enabling, to be followed by country panelist to discuss their local and Pacific regional contexts and re- imagining their telecoms

Research Workshop: Spectrum Management

Three tremendously timely papers which address important questions about mobile broadband spectrum. Should mobile broadband spectrum at mm wavelengths (26-60 GHz) be licensed or unlicensed – or both? What does a 145 country study show about the conditions under which regulators are most able to adopt paradigm shifting spectrum allocation policies for the best use of the resource? How can wireless network virtualization and spectrum sharing be used together to meet the increasing demand for the spectrum resource?  If you are interested in the future of mobile broadband spectrum, you need to hear this.
