Fiber to the Home

Fiber passes less than one third of US houses. Only 39% of consumers have access to more than one broadband provider of 25 Mbps service. Fiber Connect will examine how to monetize last mile access and provide incentive for massive fiber deployment by network operators.

Fiber for 5G

Fifth generation mobile networks unlock unprecedented potential to build seamless digital ecosystems, reshaping the way citizens live, work, and interact. Unlocking the full potential of 5G in the United States rests on the extension of fiber deep into the network.

Fiber to Support Rural and Under-Served Communities

Extending fiber deeper into communities is a critical economic driver, increasing connectivity for the rural and underserved, and supporting remote education, remote work and smarter government. Fiber Connect 2021 features new thinking, new business models, and new capital sources to deliver future-proof fiber broadband to under-served communities.

Fiber for Edge Compute and Low Latency Cloud Services

High performance enterprise applications are moving from distant data centers to the edge of the network to enable low latency services such as 5G, IoT, augmented reality and virtual reality. Fiber Connect will showcase opportunities for fiber suppliers to enable the global ‘move to the edge.’

Fiber for Enterprise Connectivity & Innovation

Streaming video and new forms of immersive media such as Augmented Reality will contribute to huge traffic growth. Fiber Connect 2021 will focus on how our ecosystem will meet the future of content delivery including video, gaming, AR/VR, and other yet-to-be-invented platforms.
