From the CEO

Fiber is the foundation of the 21st century digital economy. This decade brings unprecedented opportunity for investment, deployment and technology innovation in optical fiber networks for homes, business, people and a wide array of advanced devices.

As the need for gigabit connectivity grows, so too does the Fiber Connect Conference & Exhibition. The 2021 edition of the event will offer new and unique opportunities for business development, market development, technology demonstration and peer-group interaction.

The event will feature executives from a broad scope of industry sectors – traditional audiences as well as new audiences — commercial network operators, mobile network operators, digital infrastructure asset owners & developers; investors; technology suppliers, enterprises and more.

The community who attends Fiber Connect is the primary driver of investment, deployment, and operation of next generation gigabit broadband networks.

If your business requires gigabit and fiber connectivity – you should make plans to be in Nashville this July.
