How would your business benefit if you could converge your multiple services networks and reduce the number of network elements you have to provision and coordinate? Calix and Verizon just announced they have partnered to make this happen. This webinar will go over the details on how you too can take advantage of the promise of software defined, converged networks.



Alison Diana, Editor, Broadband World News
Alison Diana always dreamed of being a veterinarian until she saw a documentary of a vet removing an alligator's eye. With a love of English but no desire to be a teacher, Alison had no idea what she would do until she earned a four-year, full-tuition journalism scholarship to the School of Visual Arts and fell in love with feature writing.

An internship at Rolling Stone encouraged Alison to mix her love of music and writing until she answered an ad in a local newspaper for a position at a B2B channel publication. And so her 25-year career covering solution and service providers; technologies from HPC and UC&C to cloud and security, and business began.

Alison spent 10 years at CRN, before launching a successful freelance career writing for publications including InformationWeek, VARBusiness, Redmond Channel Partner, numerous TechTarget sites, and Florida Today. She later rejoined UBM as part of the DeusM team before heading InformationWeek's health IT section. Alison who lives on Florida's Space Coast with her husband, teen daughter, and two spoiled cats became part of the Light Reading team as editor at The New IP. In late May of this year, she was named Ambassador of the New IP Agency, a not-for-profit independent initiative providing information, education, analysis, community services and testing to support and accelerate the development of a global economy based on open, advanced, virtualized IP networks.
