Big Comm. Event | May 24-25 | Austin, TX


Against a backdrop of dramatic change, the Big Communications Event brings together the industry’s top competitive operators with its most dynamic technologists to discuss and debate the issues both driving and challenging the ultimate move to an NFV-enabled cloud running profitable applications and services over an underlying New IP network.

Many of these hottest topics relate to the technologies themselves and the ways in which winning players will best master the disciplines of technology development, innovation, creativity and business acumen. But there are other factors at play here, as well, namely trust and culture, and a reshaping of industry-wide collaboration, and they will be part of the BCE conversation.

A market as topsy-turvy, high stakes and gosh-darned confusing as this one requires a show that does it justice. And that’s where Light Reading’s BCE 2016 event comes in. We’ve changed the name of the show from BIG Telecom Event, to BIG Communications Event to better reflect the market we serve. BCE is the one event where every member of the next-gen communications ecosystem can find the information they need to come out on the winning side of this singular period in the history of the comms industry.
