Top 6 Presentations at European Utility Week 2016

Posted by Ingar Evjen Oct 19, 2016 9:33:49 AM


Are you going to The European Utility Week that is taking place in Barcelona from 15th to 17th November this fall? Teleplan Globe will be present at booth number 3G153, where we will demonstrate the capabilities of our communications planning solutions.

This is also a unique opportunity to catch the latest  European trends in the Utility market. In order to get most out of the conference, we have studied the conference programme. From all the sessions, we have identified what we believe to be the most interesting and promising presentations related to communications planning for Smart Metering.
