Fiber Connect 2019: Fiber is the Difference and Much More…

Fiber Connect is North America’s premier broadband event hosted by the Fiber Broadband Association and once again this year, ETI Software exhibited its best-of-breed subscriber provisioning and device management solutions for fiber networks.   Held June 2-5th in Orlando, with over 1500 attendees, Fiber Connect was an excellent opportunity for municipalities, telcos, utilities, and co-ops to connect with each other to share experiences on advancing fiber networks.  Fiber Connect committee member and ETI Product Director Brad Hine noted that “attendance has doubled and tripled over the last years, indicating the value that fiber operators receive by participating.”  Congratulations to the Fiber Broadband Association and Lisa Youngers, President, for a well-designed and operated event.

Fiber Connect 2019 Agenda: From Business to Engineering

Fiber Connect 2019 provided something for everyone.  From early-stage discussions about building business cases to case studies from communities that are well on their journey to networking opportunities with peers.   Three tracks based on Business, Engineering and Operations professionals offered a variety of topics such as:  Marketing and Promoting Fiber, FTTH Basics and Network Design, and Managing a Legacy Fiber Network.

The event also hosted over 100 fiber and broadband technology sponsors – creating a unique opportunity for manufacturers, equipment, and service providers to meet and exchange challenges and solutions.  Fiber network service providers had the chance to interact and network with vendors and partners from across the lifecycle: planning and design, engineering, network equipment and fiber manufacturers as well as provisioning OSS/BSS and other software solutions.
