Colt Technology Services to present at Telecom Blitz Week, Summer Edition

LONDON, UK, 2 June, 2021Colt Technology Services, a leading provider of world-class network and voice connectivity to businesses in Europe, Asia and the US, today announced that Head of Mobile Connectivity Solutions, Mark Gilmour will speak at FierceTelecom’s “Telecom Blitz Week, Summer Edition,” taking place from 7 – 9 June, 2021.

Gilmour will address attendees on Wednesday 9 June 2021, between 11:00-12:00 pm ET, as one of three speakers in a session titled, “2021 Fiber Technologies and Strategies: Everything You Need to Know.”

The session abstract reads: “A couple of factors are driving momentum behind fiber build-outs in the United States in 2021. One is the deployment of 5G and the necessity of fiber for backhaul, and the other is motivation to close the digital divide, which became more urgent because of Covid. There’s real money on the table in both cases. The wireless carriers are spending capex to deploy fiber backhaul, and the fed is spending money via the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) and the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) to close the digital divide. What are the most current fiber technologies that telcos need to understand for 5G backhaul? What issues must be considered for rural deployments of fiber? And what’s the status of next-gen optical such as 400G and beyond?”

Gilmour, an industry veteran with more than two decades of experience, is charged with leading and expanding Colt’s mobile connectivity proposition and plays a pivotal role in driving the company’s mobile strategy. His contribution to the session will center on 5G transport.

The virtual event is free to interested parties, who can learn more and pre-register here.
