Autonomous Networks Summit 2023

Friday, October 13, 2023 | 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm (GST)
Virtually and in-person | Dubai, UAE
Co-located with Ultra-Broadband Forum (UBBF) 2023



The race is on…for end-to-end network automation

Digital transformation is accelerating across multiple verticals, creating enhanced opportunities for Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to generate at least $700 billion in new revenue from industrial 5G and B2B2X. However, CSPs’ ability to tap into these opportunities will depend on their ability to handle the complex processes that will ensure the E2E service lifecycle for a new wave of digital services and applications.

In 2019, TM Forum set up the Autonomous Networks (AN) Program to support telecom network automation and digital transformation and to enable CSPs to benefit from new revenues, operational efficiency, and enhanced customer experience. With more partners joining the AN collaboration and an increasing number of leading CSPs adopting AN as a key strategy, AN is now evolving from consensus toward deployment at scale.

Join us in Dubai, where you will hear from trailblazers who are creating real change and inspiring others with their autonomous network’s strategy and best practices. Real change can only happen when we come together to discuss and collaborate to resolve key challenges of intelligent network automation.

By attending the Autonomous Networks Summit, you gain access to the Ultra-Broadband Forum (UBBF), October 12 – 13, 2023.

This is an invitation-only event, however, if you are interested in attending either virtually or in person, please submit your interest below, confirming whether you will be attending in-person or virtually and we will be in touch.
