Altice Labs showcasing innovation at the Net Futures 2016 event
On the occasion of the Net Futures 2016 event, ETNO interviewed Helder Biscaia, Director of Business Development at Altice Labs, the innovation arm of Portugal Telecom #ThinkDigital.
At the Net Futures event I was often asked “why do we need such speeds?”. This was the very same question people asked when 128kbps ISDN connections arrived. With Ultra-HD TV transmissions, immersive and interactive services and massive IoT just around the corner, I am sure that in a few years those same people will be asking “how did we ever do with so little?”.
