Vocus is proud to again be major sponsor of CommsDay Summit 2020, an important event for the Australian telecommunications industry, and to have some of our leaders present as part of the event program.

On day one of the event, Vocus Chief Operating Officer, Ellie Sweeney, discussed how Vocus and the telco industry play a key role supporting Australian industries to negotiate the COVID-induced acceleration of trends such as digitisation, cybersecurity and changing customer needs. 

She said as providers of critical infrastructure, more needed to be done to support the needs of key industries by re-thinking network architecture, particularly with their increasing requirements for data, cloud based applications and low latency.

Ellie outlined how Vocus’ own Future State network program was helping to transform how we deliver critical infrastructure services. She also outlined the valuable role of fibre infrastructure in shaping opportunities in regional Australia – as well as Australia’s role in in Asia-Pacific.
