Bob Napor Speaks at FBR’s “Living in the Gigabit World” Conference
Bob Napor, Vice President at inCode, spoke on a panel for FBR & Co.’s “Living in a Gigabit World” conference. Held on June 11, 2015 at the Paley Center in New York City, the conference brought together thought leaders across the telecom industry value chain to discuss the implications of the consumer high speed internet jump to gigabit-class services.
According to the FBR press release:
This unique conference brings together thought leaders from service providers, equipment vendors, network infrastructure contractors, policy makers, and other enablers to delve deep into the Gigabit World through panel discussions, interactive Q&A and one-on-one meetings with company executives. Featured presenters will include executives from Airvana, Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, Dycom Industries, Ericsson, EZchip Semiconductor Ltd., Energous Corporation, Federated Wireless, Ikanos Communications, Lions Gate Entertainment, Nokia-Siemens Networks, PMC-Sierra, Inc., Samsung Electronics, Tarana Wireless, Inc and Verizon.
“Consumer demand for HD video, over-the-top media and new applications like Internet of Things are driving demand for faster data speeds into the home. As a result, carriers are deploying gigabit speed networks as they either seek to profit from new services or compete against new offerings like Google Fiber,” said David Hilal, senior managing director and director of research for FBR. “At our conference we will examine the drivers of data consumption, the carrier capex dilemma and the various technologies that seek to provide faster and cheaper network equipment and content.”
