5G, WiFi6, 10G, 50G PON: The Alphabet Soup Continues
Tuesday, April 30, 2019
11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m London
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:
- Current state of 5G and how it affects everyone, not only mobile network providers.
- Latest technologies being developed and how they will benefit their networks and subscribers.
- How to prepare their networks for the future – whatever it may hold.

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.
