The Fiber-to-the-Home Council will host its first-ever annual conference and exhibition dedicated to the advancement and deployment of fiber-to-the-home.
The three-day conference, to be held Oct. 15-17 in New Orleans, will include a series of speakers and roundtable discussions in three fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) tracks: technology, business and case studies.
"Fiber-to-the-home is one of the most rapidly evolving technologies in communications today," says James Salter, FTTH Council president. "Unless you're a player in the industry, it's likely you are operating from outdated information. This conference is dedicated to getting municipalities, utilities, real estate developers, service providers and other industry professionals up to speed on the technology, costs and benefits of fiber-to-the-home."
The FTTH Conference 2002 exhibition will be populated with equipment manufacturers, producers of optical fiber cables, engineering consulting firms and other industry pacesetters. Today's products and services will be on display for comparison shopping.
"The industry is excited to participate in this event," says Donna Keegan, executive director of the FTTH Council. "There is no better venue available for exploring solutions, learning from experts, and meeting with company representatives."
The FTTH Council is a non-profit organization established in 2001 to educate the public on the opportunities and benefits of fiber-to-the-home solutions. For more information visit
