Chief Technology Officer Stephen Howe leads the Network team responsible for designing, building and operating Bell’s industry-leading broadband fibre, wireless, satellite and media networks.
Mr. Howe joined Bell in 2008 and has led the rollout of both the Bell Fibe all-fibre network in 7 provinces and a national 4G LTE wireless footprint that now covers more than 99% of the Canadian population, and is guiding Bell’s upcoming launch of mobile 5G services.
A network executive in Canadian telecom for the past 25 years, Mr. Howe holds a Bachelor of Engineering Physics degree from McMaster University and an MBA from Cornell University.
5G is about more than just faster mobile speeds. Stephen will explore the benefits, and use cases associated with the next generation of latency, network slicing, high device density, and yes, speed too. What does it take to enable these technologies? Stephen will also discuss how the ecosystem and underlying network will have to evolve to enable these next generation services.
