  • TIA’s Dan Henry speaks with Craig Dollar, Director of NG9-1-1 Strategy at Motorola Solutions and Patrick Halley, Executive Director of the NG9-1-1 Institute and Partner with Wilkinson Barker Knauer about current challenges to upgrading our emergency communications systems. Public safety will require policy leadership and dedicated funding to bring emergency communications into the modern era.

  • We talk a lot about network innovation on the virtualized side of the network, but what about the backbone of the network? Deploying fiber deep pushes better cable service closer to the customer, enhances scalability, and addresses concerns about aging copper being a bottleneck to network innovation. Cox Communication's Dr. Eugene Dai and EXFO's Sophie Legault spoke with TIA NOW from Cable-Tec Expo 2017 about the drive towards deep fiber, what impedes deployment, what deep fiber means for five nines reliability, and how service assurance will change as the network evolves.

  • Communities seeking the benefits of "smart" connectivity are faced with difficult choices: what are the first steps? How do you integrate applications? Which vendors do you work with? What's your budget? How do you manage public and private partnerships? In this discussion, city and county leaders tasked with scaling smart communities discuss the challenges and opportunities they're currently facing. They also weigh in on how the communications ecosystem can support their plans for current and future connectivity.

  • In this video panel from Nest headquarters in Palo Alto, CA, IoT security experts from VMware, Nest, NIST and Palo Alto Networks weigh in on consumer IoT and security. How do you balance the plug-and-play functionality of consumer IoT with network layer security?

  • IoT holds the promise to transform nearly every aspect of modern business, and bring efficiencies to our everyday lives. This TIA lunch and learn featuring policy leaders from AT&T, Nokia, Qualcomm, NTIA and more explore policies that reduce challenges to wireless broadband infrastructure deployment - and how public-private sector partnerships and other regulatory and legislative initiatives can help spur investment in IoT technologies and applications to enable smarter, safer and more efficient connected communities.

  • Rachel Kutz, VP of Strategic Initiatives within AT&T's Global Supply Chain group discusses how the value chain of suppliers and QuEST Forum's role help AT&T compete and achieve near-term sustainability goals.

  • Nokia’s Chief Quality Officer, Deepti Arora, joins Power & Tel CEO Jennifer Sims and KPGCo President Trevor Putrah to explain the importance of the global language of network quality and performance provided by TL9000 for suppliers and service providers around the world.

  • AT&T’s Susan Johnson, SVP of Global Supply Chain, and CenturyLink’s Todd Miller, VP of Network Operations, discuss how they’ve raised the bar thanks to TL9000 and close coordination with their supplier partners via QuEST Forum. They also discuss what they foresee as required network innovation, and their expectations for the newly announced merger of TIA and QuEST Forum.

  • The TIA and QuEST Forum merger announced this week heralds a new era in industry alignment bringing “agility, scale, quality, efficiency and trust,” says TIA CEO Wes Johnston. Fraser Pajak, CEO of QuEST Forum and Wes Johnston discuss the natural synergies and combined strengths of the new organization.

  • Future roads will host a combination of shared rides, electric cars and autonomous vehicles, says Peter Kosak, Executive Director of Global Urban Mobility Programs at General Motors. Kosak talks with TIA NOW about consumers’ evolving views on autonomous vehicles, how easier modes of transportation affect the future of car ownership, and what hurdles still need to be addressed as we transition to more embedded connectivity and shared mobility.

  • Zup Co-Founder Felipe Almeida sits down with TIA’s John Jacobs to discuss the need of service providers and financial institutions to turn up customers with fully integrated, secured cloud services to better compete and drive deeper relationships.

  • The need to create smarter businesses through the deployment of new technologies requires more efficient and better connected buildings in which to house those businesses. Here to discuss the latest developments of planning and construction of smart buildings - and the federal government’s role in helping - are Maria Vargas, Director of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Initiative and Eric Hall, Chief Innovation Officer of Site 1001, a spinoff of JE Dunn Construction.

  • Spirent’s Dave Garrison and Rajat Agarwal reveal how 5G is more than a generational improvement on 4G; it's a new way to design and build networks from core to edge to RF. 5G will require a re-think of the role of networks in meeting end user demands.

  • The TIA-942 data center cabling standard was recently updated with the release of 942-B, which includes a lot of important changes. John Jacobs, VP of Market Intelligence and Research at TIA, spoke with Jonathan Jew, President of J&M Consultants and Secretary of TIA’s TR-42 Cabling Systems Engineering Committee, about this update and why it's critical for those who build and manage data centers.

  • Accelerating the development and adoption of NFV requires working with service providers and ecosystem partners to help build deployable solutions. But what barriers still exist that prevent virtualized networks from being deployed everywhere today? Timon Sloane, VP of Standards and Membership at the Open Networking Foundation, shared his advice on navigating the complexity of NFV adoption and how industry can benefit from open source platforms.
