Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2017 Canadian ISP Summit!

This year, the ISP Summit will be focusing on the theme “Gearing up for Gigabit”. As we rapidly shift to an era where higher speed and gigabit broadband services are common, we must understand what will drive the uptake of these services and the challenges that will arise along the way.

This year’s keynote speakers, sessions, and panels will identify new ways that increasingly high broadband speeds are being taken advantage of, explore technological and infrastructure advancements, discuss new business models and opportunities to increase returns on investment, and consider new implications and challenges that ISPs will face.

We aim to provide relevant insight for businesses of all sizes to assist the industry in preparing for and embracing the next generation of Internet speeds.

Topics may touch on some or all of the following areas:

Technology: Evolving Last Mile Technologies / Emerging Protocols & Standards / Internet of Things / Software Defined Networking
Business: New Business Models / The Shift From Traditional Services / Customer Service in a Connected Device Driven Home
Emerging Trends and Experiences: Shifting Demands & Usage Patterns / Moving Beyond Download Speeds / 4K Video / Virtual Reality / Connected Homes / Shift from Linear to OTT
Privacy and Security: New Security Risks / Privacy in the Cloud / Responsibilities of Customers, Service Providers, & ISPs

Who Attends?
The Summit attracts executives and personnel from both the independent ISP and carrier markets. We expect a mix of 350 executive and technical attendees with a slight leaning towards management.

Format?
Preference is always given to content that is vendor agnostic. The sessions are not meant to be sales pitches as we find that simply does not engage the audience.
The exception to the above rule is where a case study is presented that is either given by or is about an independent ISP that focuses mainly on how they approach a problem.

The proposal submission form is available here.

Please complete the submission form and email to melanie@cnoc.ca no later than July 1, 2017.
