    The 15th anniversary of TNMO will offer more interactive discussions than ever before!

    Day One | Tuesday 23 April

    WELCOME to the highly establishedTransport Networks for Mobile Operat


    offering 15 years of exceptional case studies

    from operators and telecom solution providers

    across the globe.

    The increasing pressure on operators as a result of spectrum shortage, and

    the congestion imposed on networks by smart devices and new applications

    has weighed heavily on an operator’s overall transport network.

    TNMO provides a unique opportunity for operators and solution providers

    to join together and discuss how to cost-efficiently combat capacity

    constraints by examining how operators can upgrade and expand their


    New developments and solutions in network infrastructure such as Radio

    Access, all IP packet-based networks, LTE Backhaul, Small Cell Backhaul

    and the overall transition to heterogeneous networks will be addressed

    through numerous interactive sessions which will extract varied viewpoints

    and generate heated debates.

    A truly distinctive programme, don’t miss the chance to hear CXO level

    representatives as well as leading engineers and network architects,

    addressing their preference for network solutions as well as their future

    methods of expanding networks to facilitate the advent of high speed

    technologies such as LTE.

    On behalf of the TNMO team, we look forward to welcoming you in London,

    to the most rewarding show on Backhaul & Small Cell yet!

    Best wishes,

    Audience-led Panel Discussion: The Network Evolution Roadmap: Next-Gen NetworkRequirements for Future Service Environments
