Electronic Communications

Electronic communications are vital in an increasingly digital and connected world. Rapidly disseminating new technologies depend on electronic communications and connectivity, which is why submarine cables and satellite and terrestrial networks (fixed or mobile), particularly high capacity networks, are crucial for the successful implementation of digital and mobility solutions.

The convergence phenomenon has led to the emergence of disruptive new players and has blurred the boundaries that once separated electronic communications from media and technology. The Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications have also brought new challenges (visit our Tech Hub).

These developments have created a digital ecosystem offering countless opportunities. However, the increasing level of complexity, competition and regulation has triggered a growing need for multidisciplinary legal advice with in-depth knowledge of the issues shaping the future of electronic communications.
