Stimulating Conversations at IT Expo West

The upcoming IT Expo West in LA, CA September 1-3 will undoubtedly be stacked with several valuable sessions as always. I will be covering a couple of known subjects around a timely phenomenon - The Broadband Stimulus. The focus will be on the Broadband Stimulus and how it will potentially impact broadband VoIP deployment and use as well as investment in fiber and wireless technologies and their inevitable union.

I hope to see you there!

"Dark Fiber & U.S. Stimulus - How New Fiber Drives Broadband VoIP" (SP-04)
Over the next two to five years broadband speeds and penetration will increase giving VoIP service providers and equipment vendors more opportunities than ever before. This session will connect the dots between the Broadband Stimulus, fiber deployment and the VoIP applications that will grow from it. The moderator will give an overview of the current status of the ARRA BTOP. The panel will discuss the benefits of wide-scale broadband deployment and how that will positively impact the VoIP industry.

"Fiber & Wireless Backhaul - Two Technologies That Actually Feed Each Other" (SP-05)
Since the invention and commercialization of both fiber and wireless transport there has been a perception of competition between the two. Vendors positioned their products and services as a "one, or the other" choice. Very recently it has become very apparent to the mainstream buyer that fiber and wireless actually complement each other. There is probably no better example of this than with 4G wireless deployment and backhaul needs of wireless data from cell towers. This session will provide an overview of the current state of wireless backhaul over fiber, the benefits, where it is and is not happening, and why.
