This event coincides with Lebanon's efforts for significant fibre expansion projects that extend from the core network, to the street cabinets, and to major customer premises, hoping that it will reach every home. In parallel, the TRA has undertaken the task to define the new building requirements that account for broadband connectivity including FTTH. The TRA is looking forward to the contribution of this conference towards raising the awareness of the importance of FTTH technology and its adoption towards the economy in general, the telecommunications industry in particular, and to improving the standard of living", declared Dr. Hoballah.
The 2-day event is to be held at the Mövenpick Hotel in Lebanon's capital city, Beirut on 30 November and 1 December with the theme "Taking your life to new horizons".
