Channel Live is the UK’s only ICT trade specific conference, exhibition, thought leadership and networking event rolled into one.

Only at Channel Live can Resellers, VARS and other Channel Partners openly discuss margin opportunities with vendors and solution providers.

Channel Live was launched to replace the Convergence Summits and in response to the need for one major event to serve the entire ICT Channel.  It will be bigger and better than anything The Channel has seen for many years and is the only event of its kind.

Why Attend?

Join us on Stand 210 for our Cloud-Ready Connectivity launch, which includes private networking (MPLS IPVPN), Internet (as an enabler for SD-WAN) or hybrid networks (multiple services such as private network, Internet, SIP and private cloud) through our resilient UK-wide network. Our Cloud-ready connectivity uis highly configurable, with boosts including mobile backup, business Wi-Fi, SIP and Hosted Voice, whilst our enhanced monitoring enables greater visibility. 

We will also be shocasing live demos. Find out how our new and improved management portals will give you greater control, greater visibility and a greater customer experience. Our product experts will be hosting the following demos:


From order to bill, the MyNet portal will simplify nearly every aspect of the service provisioning process. It provides a true insight into your network, allowing you to see what we can see and giving you real-time control. More than just an ordering portal, it contains in-life information such as upgrades and faults, as well as in-flight information such as EMP improved order journeys and live status'. The solution therefore offers an opportunity to make life easier for our Partners and improve your customers experience. 

Hosted Voice Management Portal

Powered by Mitel, Hosted Voice is an all-in-one cloud based phone system that routes calls through the Internet, meaning there is no need for expensive on site hardware. As it’s Cloud based it relieves your customers of managing an on-site server and all the equipment and expenses that come with it. This enables their staff to communicate regardless of their location and brings together voice, chat and messaging to allow employees to easily interact with colleagues and customers.
