Wi-Fi is the foundation of the connected home for consumers; yet, it’s often a source of frustration. With the imminent release of the new Wi-Fi 6 standard – combined with a strong Managed Wi-Fi offer – service providers can reverse subscriber frustration while tapping into new revenue streams.

Key topics include:

  • What’s different about Wi-Fi 6 and why it matters to your subscribers
  • The importance of offering Managed Wi-Fi and its connection to Wi-Fi 6
  • How you can elevate your brand and gain a strong foothold in the home network.



 

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.
