Gig Home Solutions and Community Wi-Fi Discussed At Conference

Those who work on the technology side at telcos had great exposure to new products and services at the TTA Annual Meeting held recently in Franklin, Tennessee.

In addition to an expansive vendor showcase, a number of speakers provided information for CTOs and their departments to consider. For example, Patrick Moreno of ZyXEL discussed the many home solutions that are powered by gigabit internet speeds. At the conference, Patrick was interviewed on StoryConnect: The Podcast, where he talked about the gig-capable equipment available to homeowners today and how telcos can take advantage of this in expanding their services.

In another presentation, Keith Jones of CCI Systems discussed ways to expand your telco’s presence through “free” community Wi-Fi. If structured correctly, offering this free service can actually increase paid take rates and revenues. Click here to listen as Keith shares network ideas for creating community Wi-Fi.
