The agenda of the forum event on telecom networks' impact on alarms, organised by Euralarm Members BSIA and FIA and supported by Euralarm is now available.
The event will be held on March 15th, and will offer the opportunity to hear from experts what the effect of the transition towards ALL-IP networks on alarm signalling will be and how this may affect the Fire and Security Industry. Registration are now open to this event, titled the alarm system you installed today may not work tomorrow. It is a free to attend event and spaces will be limited to 100 delegates: there has already been a high interest in this event, spaces may go quickly!
BSIA and other trade bodies have been involved in discussions with Ofcom, telecommunications providers and other industry stakeholders with regard to the impending transition from analogue to an All IP digital telecommunications network across the UK. The transition is starting this year and is expected to be rolled out at different pace by the multitude of network providers over the coming years, ultimately resulting in the demise of the PSTN network as we know it today!
The event will provide an opportunity for you to listen to key stakeholders in this technology changing area, including Ofcom, the UK regulator, Openreach, the main infrastructure provider, as well as network comms providers such as BT Consumer and Virgin Media.
To compliment this, the Euralarm Task Group NGN will also organise a workshop prior to the conference. The workshop, to be held on March 14th, is intended to develop understanding of NGN progress across Europe. The group will also consider what guidance and direction will be of value to industry members and their customers going forward.
Euralarm Members and other stakeholders and interested parties are invited to participate in the Open forum or the workshop, which attendance is limited to Euralarm Members only.
