KMI's Newport Conference on Fiberoptics Markets

KMI's annual Newport conference is the premier event for carriers and vendors trying to understand industry trends. Fiber Planners' own Denise Frey is one of the 3 keynote session speakers; here's the write-up of her presentation:

"The Next Market Window: Power Transmission, National Security and Broadband"
"The Blackout got our attention, but how do we secure it from happening again? The power grid was built over 50 years ago and desperately needs upgrading. Conductors, structures, SCADA systems, substations and even the documentation are out of date. OPGW and ADSS will be part of that investment. On a smaller scale, the municipalities are also beefing up security and preparing for the workforce migration to the rural areas for improved quality of life. Learn what the power utility market requires and their expected timeframes."

Denise has been working with this for over decade; I can't think of a more qualified speaker.

The dates are September 29 to October 1, 2003.
