The channel is evolving, and it's not restricted to telecoms either. Rapid evolution in technologies such as manufacturing, robotics, security and AI, amongst others, are changing the way that we do business locally and globally.

The Future of the Copper Network

I was honoured to give my views on the future of the copper network in UK to the Federation of Communication Services annual Comms Provider event this year.

Voice over IP
