Fiber Connect 2021 Highlights

With the United States on the brink of approving a broadband infrastructure investment plan potentially worth tens of billions of dollars, the fiber industry gathered this meet in Nashville, Tennessee for Fiber Connect 2021. The sold-out event attracted over 2,000 attendees representing several hundred telecom operators, including incumbents, new entrants, cable operators and municipal utilities -- all focused on the next gen of fiber broadband rollouts.

For many attendees, this was the first industry event since the outset of the pandemic.

Gary Bolton, President & CEO, Fiber Broadband Association, shares some highlights.

The Fiber Broadband Association is setting up a new Research Advisory Program led by former Gartner Principal Analyst Deborah Kish to quantify and qualify the economic, societal and community impact of fiber broadband in the U.S. and Latin America.

In addition, the Fiber Broadband Association (FBA) recognized two outstanding individuals and one organization for their accomplishments and continued commitment to advancing the fiber industry: 

  • 2021 Chairman’s Award: Ben Moncrief, SVP Strategic Relations, C Spire 
  • 2021 Star Award: Lit Communities 
  • 2021 Photon Award: Mark Boxer, Technical Manager, Solutions and Applications Engineering Manager, OFS 

 “The Fiber Broadband Association is proud to award these recipients for their efforts to advance fiber connectivity forward and create a better broadband future for communities and businesses across North America,” said Gary Bolton, CEO at Fiber Broadband Association. “Fiber is the critical infrastructure that will support the technological innovation, economic development and diversity we need today, and we are humbled by the dedication these men and women have shown to advance the world forward through fiber broadband.”

Webinar archive: Expanded beam optics

How do you ensure the reliability of a fiber connection to a switch at very high line rates or once co-packaged optics (CPO) solutions come to market? Dust is always a concern, especially at 400G and above, when even a small contamination can lead to magnified disruptions. Reliable optical interconnects are key! The latest OSFP 4.0 spec introduces support for Expanded Beam Optical (EBO) technology, opening up new possibilities.

This webinar explores what makes the Expanded Beam concept unique for fiber optic connectors, how EBO contributes to increasing operational reliability, and the wide range of applications for which EBO can be used.

America's $100 billion broadband surge - Fiber Broadband Association's Gary Bolton

President Biden's American Jobs Plan is calling for a historic investment of $100 billion over 8 years to "bring affordable, reliable, high-speed broadband to every American", including for the more than 35 percent of rural Americans who lack access to broadband at minimally acceptable speeds. The goal is 100% coverage. If approved by Congress, the plan would set off a wave of network construction.

In this interview, Gary Bolton, President, Fiber Broadband Association, shares his insights on the proposal and how it could be carried out.

2:42 - Is the $100 billion plan justified? Is there a way to calculate if this figure is warranted?

5:06 - Is there any evidence that communities with fiber broadband get an economic boost from the investment?

8:06 - Will the funding be directed exclusively at the last mile fiber connection or will it also include other necessary upgrades to metro and regional infrastructure?

11:09 - How will the plan be administered? Via the FCC or other government agencies?

15:07 - America values the competitive marketplace. Will there be restrictions or guidelines with this funding as to whether the networks must provide open access to other broadband providers?

17:46 - What does the timeline look like from proposal to legislation to Congressional vote, to actual project funding?
