Fiber Optic Asset Protection Symposium
Be the Solution. Protect the Connection.
Damaged fiber can cause outages which can lead to lost customers, repair expenses, and lost revenue. Even worse cable cuts can lead to 911 service disruptions like the cut on January 24, 2015 which knocked out 911 service for thousands of residents and disabled service for 19,000 cell phones, and 4,000 Internet phones. In January 2009, a fiber optic cable that served the data center for a major airline was severed by a contractor in Tempe, AZ resulting in hundreds of grounded flights, thousands of passengers stranded and millions of dollars in lost revenue.
Asset protection begins at project planning and design. Meet with industry professionals to discuss how to prevent situations like this from happening to you.
This symposium will help you learn how to avoid these scenarios.
The Fiber Optic Asset Protection Symposium is a place where telecommunication professionals can come together to learn how to protect their biggest asset, their buried fiber optic cable network. The symposium will feature a critical industry summit where industry leaders (View 2016 Panel) will discuss best practices for protecting their buried fiber optic cable from damages and ensuring service continuity. There will also be conference sessions covering hot topics created by an Advisory Board of fiber industry experts.
Attendees will also have access to the 50+ conference sessions including more session times that will be added, workshops, 100+ exhibits, networking events, new technology demonstrations, and more. The symposium will be held at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando on March 14-16, 2017. The 90-minute summit will be held during the symposium.
“The opportunity to discuss challenges and best practices with peers from many different segments of industry, from all over the world, is an opportunity that pays huge dividends and shouldn’t be missed.” – Bryan Lantz, Verizon
A recent survey of past attendees showed that 98.1% of respondents said they will be able to implement change based on what they learned.
