Second Workshop on Municipal Fiber Networks

On November 15th, 2012 our Second Workshop on Municipal Fiber Networks will take in Gent at City Hall. This event will be co-hosted with the final public event of the iMinds TERRAIN project (Techno-Economic Research for futuRe Access Infrastructure Networks).

Goal of the workshop

The main goal of our workshop is spreading knowledge from existing fiber network initiatives towards different players involved in potential future deployments. We will tackle expected revenues as well as indirect effects, potential synergies in deployment and operations, and suitable business models. Discussion will be stimulated, both during the sessions, the final panel discussion, coffee and lunch breaks and networking reception.


A full day program is foreseen. More info can be found here
