By WFN Strategies

This year in Honolulu, WFN Strategies is proud to moderate a new workshop for all PTC 2011 attendees. Called “It Takes a Village”, this workshop consists of three panels composed of system owners, legal specialists, and system suppliers who are providing a primer on parenting the development of a submarine cable system. Broken down into three sessions, the workshop covers all aspects of a system’s life and growth, including infancy to adolescence and adulthood, corresponding with the system phases of development, implementation, and service provision.

Throughout the sessions, topical and important industry information will be candidly discussed. In the three hour-long sessions, topics of discussion will include, but are not limited to:

  • The process of conceptualizing the project and assessing the market
  • The process of financing a project
  • Regulatory and permitting hurdles
  • Supplier involvement in marketing, financing, logistics, and project management
  • Project implementation issues and challenges
  • Current and emerging markets and technologies, including what is frequently requested by customers, what is currently available and what new developments are required to provide nascent and emerging services

The panel of experts will provide not only their own insights and experience but will participate in an interactive question and answer period at the end of each session.
