>>12h00 | 12h30 Smart City Amsterdam>>

Amsterdam has developed the city as an open and user centric platform and is successful in the collaborative bottom up approach through citizens engagement. Frans-Anton will share best-next but also worst practices of the Smart City projects where citizens, SME's, other businesses, governments and science institutes collaborate. Imperative for a Smart City is the combination of electricity and connectivity through symmetrical fibre optic technology that make data widely available, the fuel of a Smart City. This gives everybody the opportunity to develop all type of apps to create a more liveable city and will result in happy citizens.

>>12h30 | 13h00 How to evaluate the impact of different technology options on the enterprise value>>

The impact of fixed broadband investment on the enterprise value is determining the investment decision of incumbent network operators as well as green-field operators. History has shown so far that FTTH in many cases is not a financially valid option for many of those operators. The biggest levers on the business case are the investment level on the one hand and the additional revenues on the other hand. This presentation will provide an overview of the financial impact of the FTTH case, while comparing it with the heavily discussed marketable alternative Vectoring VDSL, and the regulatory implications of vectoring VDSL. In addition this presentation will provide analyses on the key levers and show what needs to happen on the demand side to make FTTH a solid investment from a financial point of view.

>>13h00 | 14h00 Lunch Break>>

>>14h00 | 14h20 Afterkoon Keynote
Ordinary Lives in the Speed of Light>>

Connection speed is like money... There is never enough money and connection speed. I began my internet adventure with 2400 bps modem from a telephone line... Now i am using, as an ordinary user who has 1 gigabit fiber connection. Faster connection means more demand for internet and it changes the way i live and work.

>>14h20 | 15h40 Panel session Smart Cities>>

Smart cities have been a hot topic in the industry for a while but as we see cities, campuses and other developments emerge, it is important to explore the realities of the situation.  Open access can promote the interests of property owners while operators traditionally want to have exclusitvity.  The session will explore the topic and look at which applications will make a significant difference for users, operators and developers as well as which ones will generate revenues directly or promote higher property values/rentals?

The Information and Communication Technologies are playing a key role in helping the development of all economic sectors and the competitiveness of the countries.
