Bridging the Digital Divide – BaseN CEO chairing the IEEE CQR2021 International Workshop

The IEEE ComSoc International Communications, Quality and Reliability Workshop is held annually with the purpose of bringing together industry and academic experts to present and discuss communications quality, reliability and security issues. 

With the beginning COVID-19 pandemic, the world had to adapt quickly to changes. Suddenly, working remote whenever feasible became the new norm. This stressed the need for quality and reliability of communication on a global scale. It also shaped the topic of the IEEE CQR2021 workshop: Bridging the Digital Divide – Quality, Reliability and Secure Access for All. 

The workshop will identify problems and solutions to bring quality, reliable, and secure access to the under-served in rural and urban areas. The problems and solutions will be discussed from three perspectives in the sessions – Reachability, Equity and Extensibility.

Apart of the above-mentioned sessions, we will have thought-provoking keynotes by Mr. Dan Sjöblom, Director General of the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) and Mr. Edward “Smitty” Smith, Managing Partner, DLA Piper. The latter will be supported with an amazing panel discussion featuring academia and industry experts alike. 

BaseN is proud to be a bronze patron for this workshop as BaseN stands for scalability, fault-tolerance and mission-criticality.
