Fibre Optic Forum


The Fibre Optic Forum at E-world is going into the third round: This innovative information and networking format will take place once again. We are already looking forward to welcoming you to the digital conference room.

Municipal utilities and regional network operators can expect a forum to discuss opportunities and challenges in fibre optic expansion. Speakers from politics, business and trade associations will present solutions to questions of fibre optic expansion and inform about successful concepts for regional and municipal fibre optic expansion. The conference thus provides municipal utilities, grid operators and politicians with a unique platform to obtain information on one of the fastest growing business fields and to develop a strategy for their own service portfolio.

The conference will be hosted by MICUS Strategieberatung, Bundesverband Breitbandkommunikation e.V. (BREKO), and con|energy as the partner of the energy industry.

Please note: This event will be held in German only.
