Description:

You will hear from leaders that manage operations and that have "been there, done that" and whose fiber networks have each been active for 10+ years. That is a tribute to the inherent capabilities of optical fiber, the continued innovation within the industry, and these leaders vision and planning for the future. This panel will be very interactive with the attendees with the goal of helping those that are early in the deployment stage or those considering a fiber deployment. You will hear about the positive effect fiber has made on their community, their prediction of the next 5+ years, and things they would have done differently if starting today.
