Just when you thought the answer to your next technology direction question was clear, the noise around multiple new technology options fills the Internet and airwaves. Multiple 5Gs are being deployed; there's CableLabs' 10G initiative; the ITU and IEEE are toiling around 50G PON – and we haven’t even talked about Wi-Fi6 yet! Is any of this real, do you have to pay attention or can you just let the dust settle and then decide?

Since waiting is often not the best option, let’s demystify technology options, their impact on your business, and how to prepare for whatever the future brings.

In this webinar, Service Providers will learn:
