Towerco resilience and response to Covid-19

Global towerco leaders share their views

With the world in the grips of a major pandemic and strict social distancing measures in place, never before has maintaining connectivity been so important.

At such a challenging but critically important time, TowerXchange partnered up with our sister companies at Euromoney Telecoms (Capacity Media, Layer123, Broadgroup, the Global Leaders Forum and WAN Summit) to launch Critical Connections: TMT Sector’s Response to Covid-19, a virtual conference and resource centre designed to support the ICT infrastructure industry through the current crisis with thought-leadership, guidance and advice. 

For the inaugural Critical Connections conference on 28-29 April, TowerXchange was honoured to draw upon its network of towerco leaders from around the world to discuss towerco resilience and response to the crisis. Moderated by Spencer Crawford White from Uirtus, top executives from Cellnex, Helios Towers, Phoenix Tower International, SBA Communications, TAWAL, Vertical Bridge and the EWIA joined a truly global virtual panel to discuss: 

– How day-to-day operations and timelines for strategic projects have been impacted by the lockdown associated with Covid-19 

– How data usage patterns have changed across their countries of operation and how they see this impacting demand from MNOs 

– New technologies and processes that have been implemented to tackle the challenges presented by the current situation – and are these here to stay? 

– What will be the longer- term impact (both positively and negatively) on the sector?

The next edition of Critical Connections will be held on 26-27 May, further information will be released shortly.
