Broadband and the internet underlies much of what we do in the modern world – Catchup Video, Streaming, Social Networks, Home-Working, Email, On-line shopping, Smart Homes... This presentation describes their development over 20 years since the dot-com boom, how they are built to handle today’s massive traffic demands and their future evolution to deal with the challenges of IoT, UHD TV and other requirements.

Tim Rossiter (CEng, MIET ) helped design some of the optical networks that got it all started in the 90’s and subsequently worked as Core Network Architect for Sky Broadband as they grew from a start up to be the second largest broadband provider in the UK.
