Meet us at Telecoms Europe LIVE

Date: 6 June 2023 08:30 - 7 June 2023 18:00

Event overview

The telecoms landscape is becoming increasingly complex as operators buy shares in other operators, relationships and rivalries between telcos and hyperscalers deepen, and the journey from telco to techco continues for some larger operator groups who are under pressure to prove their efforts will improve the bottom line.

There is also what looks like a growing trend to separate the services organisation from the network, and lots of possibilities around how the towerco model could evolve. And that’s all without digging into the technology, and how it aligns with operators’ strategies, including their business and operational models.

Telecoms Europe LIVE is 2 full days of presentations and panel discussions covering these and many other related topics in the Auditorium, and ample time for private meetings during the breaks in the Exhibition Area with some 200 attendees from European operators.

Hear from us

Paul Ceely, Director of Technology Strategy at Digital Catapult, will be participating in a panel titled ‘RIC and the roll out of Open RAN. The potential of the RAN Intelligent controller (RIC) is a hot topic in telecoms at the moment. Within the SONIC Labs programme, Digital Catapult is currently exploring how it can bring about new innovation opportunities, for example to help drive energy efficiency, read more about this topic in our blog series.


The panel will take place on the first day, Tuesday 6 June at 10.20 am and will discuss:

  • How fundamental is the radio access network intelligent controller (RIC) to the success of Open RAN?
  • Is it new thinking or just a new version of SON (self-organising networks) – which never took off as expected?
  • Can RIC avoid SONs’ incompatibility issues?


Panellists include:

  • Moderator: Malik Saadi, VP Strategic Technologies, ABI Research
  • Neil McRae, Chief Network Strategist, Juniper Networks
  • Richard Mackenzie, Distinguished Engineer, BT
  • Paul Ceely, Director of Technology Strategy, Digital Catapult
